Archbold Welcomes New Pulmonologist

Thursday, March 6, 2014

Archbold Memorial Hospital recently welcomed pulmonologist Johnny M. Belenchia, MD, to the hospital’s medical staff.

Dr. Belenchia earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Mississippi and a medical degree from The University of Mississippi Medical Center. He completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, and a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at The University of Tennessee College of Medicine.

Belenchia comes to Archbold from Imperial Health, LLP, a private multi-specialty medical practice located in Lake Charles, Louisiana. As a board certified pulmonologist, Belenchia is trained in critical care and treating diseases and conditions of the chest, particularly pneumonia, atypical pneumonia, interstitial lung disease, asthma, tuberculosis, emphysema and complicated chest infections. In addition to regular clinic hours at the practice, Dr. Belenchia focuses on treating patients in Archbold Memorial Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.  

“I’m excited to join the Archbold health system and the Thomasville community,” said Belenchia. “I look forward to providing respiratory care to the patients in Thomas and surrounding counties.”

Belenchia is now seeing new patients at Archbold Pulmonary Medicine and Critical Care, located at 706 South Broad Street in Thomasville, co-located with the Archbold Ear, Nose, Throat and Allergy Center. The practice accepts Medicaid, Medicare and most private insurances.
