Southboro Medical Group co-founder Dr. Marvin C. Ostrovsky is stepping down as the group’s president after 29 years. A pediatrician, Dr. O — as he tells the kids to call him — will continue to see patients and says he has no plans to fully retire.
Ostrovsky, 69, finished his 29-year tenure as president of the group yesterday, although he will continue to be chairman of the board of trustees and to see patients, the last of four co-founders to do so.
His departure comes as Southboro Medical has seen its practice grow and as state leaders debate cost controls that could lead to a major shift in how providers are paid.
“I’ll still be intimately involved in the direction and fate of Southboro Medical Group,” he said of the practice that serves 60,000 patients. The group, which is part of Atrius Health, has offices in Southborough, Westborough, Framingham and Milford. “Someone else will be in charge of leading us forward.”
