“My wife, Amani and I are recently blessed with our first baby girl,” says Dr. Srour. “With offers to join premier medical centers across the country, Jameson shined with dedication to quality outcomes and vision for service expansion. We fell in love with New Castle and are looking forward to raise our family in this friendly community.” Another reason that he chose Jameson Hospital is due to development of the new ER and OR facilities. “The technology and evolving capabilities these facilities will grant our patients is remarkable.
