Dr. Enyenihi Announces Retirement from HCMC

Paris, TN – After more than a decade of providing care to patients from Henry County and the surrounding region, Henry Enyenihi, MD, Hospitalist, announced his plans to retire from Henry County Medical Center.  His last day will be May 12.

Known to all as Dr. Henry, Dr. Enyenihi first came to HCMC as a locum tenens hospitalist in 2008, but became a full-time member of the hospitalist team in 2009. He came to HCMC after working in private practice in Brownsville, TN.

A native of Nigeria, Dr. Enyenihi came to the United States when a civil war broke out in his home country. He attended medical school in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and then did his residency at Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Wilkes-Barre, PA. He is a member of the American Board of Internal Medicine and a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. He is also a member of the Southern Medical Association, the American Medical Association and the Tennessee Medical Association.  Dr. Enyenihi is married and has three children.

“We appreciate the many years of service that Dr. Henry has provided to Henry County Medical Center and the region,” said Brad Bloemer, Interim CEO.  “He has served our patients with excellence and we thank him for caring for the medical needs of our community.  He will truly be missed.”

“To serve a community for 15 years is a testament to Dr. Henry’s dedication and love for the practice of Medicine in this small town,” said Dr. Amanda Finley, Hospitalist and Director of Medical Education at HCMC.  “He is a force that could grind thru hours and shifts that young physicians would never sign up for. He brought collegiality to the working environment that I always enjoyed daily.  His networking among peers proved valuable to his patients and partners.  I could have not pushed through the bad days of the last two years without a mentor like him by my side.  Big shoes to fill for my generation of physicians.”

“Dr. Henry became the best of friends with Dr. Richardson during his time here,” said Mary Ann MCCain, Nurse Practitioner Supervisor at HCMC. “They spent several years working together side by side.  We will always remember them together as a great duo for the Hospitalist service.”
