Dr. Tucker To Leave
Lehigh Medical Group
Dr. Michael Tucker a main stay in the medical field in Lehigh Acres for the past 28 years has decided to return to private practice. Tucker is known for being a family doctor and for his wild annual charitable golf tournaments.
Tucker has been with the Lehigh Medical Group since 2008. According to his office nothing is changing – office is the same, phone number is the same, Dr. Tucker is the same, and it’s just the right time to break ties with Lehigh Medical Group.
Lehigh Medical Group is owned by Health Management Associates, Inc. (HMA) which also owns the Lehigh Regional Medical Center.
Currently HMA is tingled up in multiple law suits over stock and board members. And their CEO Gary D. Newsome has retired as of July 2013. It was also announced that Community Health Systems Inc. of Tennessee is looking to do a friendly merger between the companies.
