SRU’S McLACHLAN STUDENT HEALTH CENTER NAMES NEW MEDICAL DIRECTOR, DR. DANIEL FERGUSON

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Dr. Daniel Ferguson, a Slippery Rock physician, is the new medical director of McLachlan Student Health Center at Slippery Rock University. 

Ferguson joins a staff of nurse practioners, registered nurses, a health promotion specialist and student employees.  He is also the physician on hand for home football games and adviser to the athletic training department.

The center has a physician on staff and operates much like a family doctor’s office, providing episodic and wellness care, Linda Beatty, director of health services, said. She added that good health promotes academic success.

Ferguson replaces Dr. Randy Kreider, who was transferred by United Presbyterian Medical Center to Clarion.

 Ferguson, a specialist in internal medicine, opened his office in Slippery Rock in 2000.  He graduated from St. George’s University School of Medicine, with residencies at Catholic Medical Center in Brooklyn and Western Pennsylvania Hospital in Pittsburgh.
