ALBION – Orleans Community Health’s Albion Healthcare Center has expanded its primary care team with the addition of Cheryl Kast, physician assistant certified, to its family medicine/primary care team.

“After serving many area families over the last decade, Cheryl has developed the trust and comfort we strive for at Orleans Community,” said Scott Robinson, director of Marketing at Orleans Community Health in a news release.

Kast brings more than two decades of experience to the growing team at the Albion Healthcare Center. She specializes in family medicine with experience in primary care (including pediatric patients), pulmonary, otolaryngology and internal medicine.

She is a Western New York native, and grew up on a dairy farm in Wyoming County. She now resides in Albion with her husband John. They have three children.

“We’re thrilled to have Cheryl on our team,” said Mark Shurtz, CEO of Orleans Community Health. “She is well-known and has a real passion for the community.”

Alana Palone, clinic administrator at the Albion Healthcare Center, said X-ray services said returned last week and now they are excited to share this added good news with Kast’s hiring.

“Cheryl is going to be a great asset to our primary care team, one that greatly benefits all of us,” Palone said.
