Spectrum Health Pennock Family Medicine welcomes new provider

Spectrum Health Pennock is pleased to announce the addition of Patrick Hite, PA-C to Spectrum Health Pennock Family Medicine – Lake Odessa, located on M-50 near downtown Lake Odessa.

 

This addition allows for greater access to care for area residents. Hite, a board-certified physician assistant, earned his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Northwestern Michigan University and his master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Western Michigan University.

 

“Working in a smaller community allows providers to better connect with the patients and the families we serve. The nice thing about being in a smaller town is that you get to know your neighbors and residents of the community. Interactions become personal allowing us to provide care on a more meaningful level for the patient and the provider,” stated Angela Ditmar, president and regional leader, Spectrum Health Pennock.

 

Hite, a provider for over ten years, grew up in a small town in the upper peninsula, much like Lake Odessa. Growing up in an Air Force family, Hite took pride in serving our country as a Captain in the U.S. Force Civil Air Patrol, helping cadets achieve their educational and career goals by giving them military-style educational and leadership opportunities. Hite has three children, “two are in aircraft mechanic school now and one is working his way up the food chain to become a chef,” Hite proudly stated. In his free time, he enjoys anything outdoors and traveling in northern Michigan.  

 

Five providers make up the robust team at Spectrum Health Pennock Family Medicine – Lake Odessa; including Laurie Braker, MD, Lee Stuart, MD, Patrick Hite, PA-C, Zachary Jones, PA-C and Erica Nyman, PA-C. The Lake Odessa facility also providers laboratory and radiology services
