Paul T McEnery, M.D.
In 1987 one physician felt strongly that the community pediatrician needed to have a stronger voice in maintaining a presence in the future of healthcare in Greater Cincinnati. His vision was to bring primary pediatricians into a collective organization dedicated to their economic well being. The result was the formation of River Valley Pediatricians, Inc. That visionary founding physician is Paul T McEnery, M.D. Emeritus Professor of Pediatrics Education and Training, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and current Board President of RVPI. Paul also produces The River Valley Forum which is published 6 times a year. It is a collection of articles, opinions, tips, tidbits, and occasionally some humor designed to assist, provoke, and entertain its readers. It can be found in the Network Practices section of this web site.
