Community Health Programs has expanded services at its Northern Berkshires practices with two new health care providers: a social worker and an adult nurse practitioner.
Thomas R. Plunkett, LICSW, is now seeing patients at CHP Adams Internists and at CHP North Adams Family Medical and Dental Center, as part of CHP’s expansion this year into behavioral health care.
Most recently a private practitioner in Williamstown, Plunkett provides psychotherapy for adults, children, couples and groups, as well as diagnostic evaluation. He has previously practiced in Pittsfield, with a focus on addiction counseling. He was also co-founder of a residential addiction treatment center in Connecticut and previously served as a behavioral health specialist at Canyon Ranch in Lenox and Pittsfield Futures, a drop-out prevention program.
Plunkett earned his B.A. at Hampshire College and his MSW from Simmons College in Boston.
Adult Nurse Practitioner Jeffrey Bialobok has joined the CHP Adams Internist practice, where he is now accepting adult patients.
Most recently practicing in Scottsdale, Ariz., Bialobok earned both his bachelor’s degree in nursing and his master’s degree in nursing from Arizona State University.
He has worked extensively as a nephrology nurse practitioner, focusing on patients with kidney disease, cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary disease, heart failure, hypertension, diabetes and other chronic conditions. He previously worked as a cardiovascular nurse consultant on behalf of a pharmaceutical company.
Bialobok holds licensure as a certified adult nurse practitioner through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
