PPG Health's founding in 1981 began with one physician, and eventually grew to a small group; aspiring to serve and treat patients while also giving back to their community. Tarrant Nephrology Associates, located just off Pennsylvania Avenue, was home to their first clinic. As their reputable practice grew, so did the services provided. In fact, the name was soon changed to PPG Health and their clinical locations multiplied. Today, PPG Health, which is owned and operated by physicians for patients, offers a wide range of healthcare services, including Cardiology, Endocrinology, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Gastroenterology, Rheumatology, Orthopedics, Podiatry, Primary Care, Nephrology, Vascular Access, and Transplant Surgery. PPG Health is also home to the PPG Health Research Institute, where our physicians and providers partner with public and private institutions and companies to advance and shape the future of clinical medicine. PPG Health strives to work as a team to ensure our patients receive quality care efficiently delivered so their wellness is maintained and improved, and their illnesses are successfully treated.
