Home » Events » Park Springs Welcomes New Medical Director Dr. Margaret A. White

Park Springs, an Atlanta continuing care retirement community is pleased to announce that Dr. Margaret A. White has been named as the new Medical Director, effective January 1, 2009.

“At a time when fewer and fewer medical students are specializing in internal medicine with a fellowship in geriatrics,” says Joan Carlson, Vice President of Quality, Innovation and Culture for Isakson Living, “we at Park Springs feel so privileged to have secured Dr. White as our  full-time board-certified geriatrician. Her incredible experience in geriatric care speaks for itself.”

Dr. White is a board-certified internal and geriatric medicine specialist.  White received her MD from the University of Virginia School of Medicine, and completed both her residency in internal medicine and fellowship in geriatrics at the University of Tennessee. From 1992 to 2004, she was assistant professor of internal medicine at Emory University in Atlanta, where she also served as clinician, teacher and supervisor of internal medicine residents and geriatric fellows. She held additional teaching and supervisory responsibilities for medical students and nurse practitioners at the Emory Clinic of the Wesley Woods Geriatric Center.

Since leaving Emory in 2004, Dr. White has been medical director at Lenbrook, a continuing care retirement community and a private practitioner at Atlanta Geriatric Specialists.  Dr. White provided primary care for the elderly and geriatric consultation in select Atlanta senior living and assisted living communities.

In her new role as Medical Director at Atlanta continuing care retirement community, Park Springs Dr. White will be the primary care provider for Members who choose to take advantage of her professional services. In addition, she will direct the community’s health education and disease prevention programs, and will conduct Atlanta senior living wellness seminars for all Members.

Dr. White will also oversee medical and quality assurance programs for all temporary and long-term care services offered on the campus of Park Springs. These services include home health care and assisted living, as well as Alzheimer’s/dementia care and skilled nursing services at Cobblestone, where Members receive professional and compassionate nursing care 24 hours a day.
