OB-GYN practice welcomes new provider

Certified family nurse practitioner Alicia Elwood has joined Rome Medical Practice’s obstetrics and gynecology practice, All About Women.

She is accepting new patients at the office located in the Beeches Office Complex, 7900 Turin Road, Rome.

Elwood joins obstetrician-gynecologist C. Nicole Pineau, who joined Rome Memorial Hospital’s medical staff last October.

“Alicia has been caring for women and their families for 13 years, including three years in a busy obstetrics and gynecology office where she treated a variety of reproductive and obstetric conditions, said Rome Medical Practice Administrator Lisa Taurisano.

Elwood graduated from St. Elizabeth College of Nursing in Utica with a registered nursing degree.  After eight years of nursing, including experience in pediatrics and home care case management, she earned certification as a family nurse practitioner at SUNY Polytechnic Institute, Marcy.

A lifelong resident of the Utica-Rome area, Elwood chose Rome Medical Practice Obstetrics and Gynecology because it is close to home.

“I want to provide health care to the women in this area so they can stay close to home, too,” she said.
