ADA Patient-Centered Resource for Accessibility

SRMC fully supports the American Disabilities Act of 2005. Our corporate ADA compliance program has been transitioning into more of a patient-centered resource for accessibility related concerns and issues. We are in the process of incorporating corporate policies to maintain compliance with the ADA. These policies are:

  • Accommodating Persons who are Blind or Have Low Vision
  • Accommodating Persons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
  • Accommodating Persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP)
  • Accommodating Persons with Service Animals

You will be provided with more education in the near future. Until then, if you would like to learn more, these additional links may be helpful:

Please keep in mind that patients and visitors are covered by the ADA, and we strive to ensure that all who enter our facility are properly cared for with effective communication.

Congratulations to Dr. Robert Petres on 50 Years of Practice

Dr. Petres, with some of the Administration team and Perinatal team, at a luncheon celebrating his retirement.

Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center wishes Dr. Petres, Maternal-Fetal Medicine physician, best of luck in his retirement after 50 years of practice!

Dr. Petres was one of the first physicians to understand the potential of diagnostic ultrasound in obstetrics.  He was one of the early pioneers and authored some of the earliest research articles on its use.  Dr. Petres was one of the first physicians in the country to offer invasive prenatal diagnosis and invasive prenatal therapy.  He founded the first community based perinatal center in Virginia and has been a leader in the field of obstetric ultrasound for over 30 years.

Dr. Petres received his MD from West Virginia University School of Medicine and completed his residency at VCU Medical Center’s Medical College of Virginia.  He served as a clinical professor at VCU Medical Center and practiced in the Richmond and Fredericksburg area with Commonwealth Perinatal Services.  We thank Dr. Petres for the expertise and wonderful patient care that he provided to our community!
