Women First of SoutheastHEALTH physicians: Eric Morton, DO; Chris Rosenquist, MD; and Heather Cugini, MD.

Women First, an established obstetrics and gynecology practice in Cape Girardeau, has partnered with the Southeast Medical Group of SoutheastHEALTH, effective Tuesday, April 1.

Joining the Southeast Medical Group from Women First are Eric Morton, DO; Chris Rosenquist, MD; Heather Cugini, MD; and Marianne Cook, APRN, BC-FNP. Women First of SoutheastHEALTH will remain in its current location at 1111 North Mount Auburn Road.

The new affiliation brings the number of experienced and dedicated obstetrics/gynecology specialists in the Southeast Medical Group to six. Southeast Obstetrics & Gynecology was established in 2011 with Dianne Woolard, MD, FACOG; Christy Cook, WHNP; and Glenda Robison, WHNP. That practice has grown to include two additional obstetricians and gynecologists, Wendelly Vasquez, MD, and Jennifer Lovegreen, MD.

"We are very excited about this opportunity to expand the reach of our medical practice by collaborating with the SoutheastHEALTH network," said Dr. Rosenquist. "We are looking forward to working with Southeast and its team of skilled healthcare professionals."

SoutheastHEALTH Vice President of Physician Services Matt Shoemaker, DO, added, "This is an exciting time for SoutheastHEALTH as we continue to expand and enhance services across our region. The addition of this well-respected specialty practice is in keeping with our commitment to provide our patients the best in women's healthcare services."
