Two physicians have completed a three year
Osteopathic Family Practice Program at Methodist Hospital. The graduates, Anne Alexis, DO and Robert Murray,
DO were honored at a graduation ceremony held on June 22 at John James
Audubon State Park in Henderson, KY.
A native of Poseyville, IN, Dr. Alexis earned her medical degree from the
Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine (KYCOM) and her Bachelor of Science
degree in biology from the University of Southern Indiana. Dr. Alexis
plans to practice outpatient family medicine in Newburgh, IN.
“Dr. Anne Alexis is a quiet, calm and thoughtful young doctor,”
said Joshua Kitchens, MD, Administrative Program Director of the Osteopathic
Family Practice Program. “I have had the good fortune of being able
to work with her as both a student and through her residency here at Methodist
Hospital. Over that time period, she has grown to be a very capable and
caring doctor who will take excellent care of her future patients.”
Originally from Lexington, KY, Dr. Murray completed his medical degree
at the University of Pikeville KYCOM and his Bachelor of Arts degree in
chemistry from the University of Louisville. Dr. Murray will join TeamHealth
as a Special Ops Hospitalist providing care at various hospitals in Kentucky
“Dr. Robert Murray will move on to Hospitalist work very soon and
I am proud to have been able to be a part of his education. He has shown
himself to be highly concerned with his patients, their care and their
best possible outcomes. He will be a great addition to the hospitals he
practices in,” said Dr. Kitchens.
