MGMA Better Performers: Investing in convenience and community

Coding & Documentation


Located on the southern banks of the Ohio River, in western Kentucky, Owensboro is the state’s fourth-largest city. In June 2020, the city’s unemployment rate was just 4.2%, well below the national average of 11% and slightly lower than the previous June (4.4%), prior to the pandemic.1 The area’s strong economy centers around such industries as bourbon and tobacco, personal protective equipment (PPE), and healthcare, including the city’s largest employer, Owensboro Health.

Situated between the major cities of Chicago, St. Louis, Cincinnati and Nashville, Owensboro is also a central distribution hub. And it has a vibrant downtown and riverfront, which has attracted many hotels, restaurants and boutiques, thanks in part to a $40 million grant from the U.S. government during the last recession.

All these factors make Owensboro an appealing place to live and return to, especially for the providers and staff at Owensboro Pediatrics. Finding doctors is no trouble for Practice Administrator Ross Scott, MBA. “Since 1996, we’ve never had to recruit anyone [to the practice],” Scott said. “All our physicians are from this area and want to come back to this area.”

Owensboro Pediatrics was founded in 1996 by Drs. Michael F. Yeiser and David E. Danhauer. Scott, who has been with the practice since 2010, noted that all seven of the practice’s physicians are partner-owners, including Yeiser, who is still practicing. The practice has four nurse practitioners (NPs), two physician assistants (PAs) and 34 staff. The payer mix is 64% commercial, 35% Medicaid and 1% self-pay.

Among the services Owensboro Pediatrics offers are well-child exams, school physicals, sports physicals, walk-in and evening sick clinics, and walk-in immunizations.
