When most new doctors come to the Mon Valley, they need some time to become acclimated to where the essentials such as gas stations, grocery stores and restaurants are located. That is not the case for Diana Hricova, D.O., who is joining Dr. Henry Holets’ family practice in August. Dr. Hricova knows where to find the Sheetz and McDonalds in Monongahela because she actually worked at those Main Street locations when she was a teenager. In addition, when she rounds at Monongahela Valley Hospital, it will be very familiar because as a student at Ringgold High School, she participated in the Auxiliary of Mon-Vale Health Resources, Inc.’s Volunteen program.

“While working at those jobs and volunteering, I enjoyed the interaction with the people. During my high school biology classes and later when I was studying physiology and anatomy at St. Vincent College, I realized that a career as a physician would be a natural fit for me,” explained Dr. Hricova. “This is an exciting opportunity because I wanted to come back to this area.”

Dr. Hricova’s family moved to Monongahela when she was 11 years old. She graduated from Ringgold High School in 2009 and then earned a Bachelor of Science Degree at St. Vincent College. Dr. Hricova’s desire to stay in Pennsylvania led her to medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. She then completed a residency in family practice at Penn Highlands Dubois.

Dr. Hricova sees her role as an extension of patients’ families. “When I did rotations in medical
school, I thoroughly enjoyed caring for everyone — from infants to seniors,” she said. “I hope to instill in my patients the importance of preventative care.”

Dr. Hricova welcomes the opportunity to provide care to the Mon Valley community. She is on staff at Monongahela Valley Hospital where she will round on her patients.

Dr. Hricova began seeing patients on Monday, Aug. 2. Her office is located at 1290 Chess Street, Second Floor, in Monongahela. To schedule an appointment call 724-258-7500.
