Joshua Hogins, D.O., F.A.P.A., a board-certified psychiatrist, has joined
the medical staff at Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center. He will provide general
psychiatric care for adults, children and adolescents beginning June 12.
Before joining HRRMC, Dr. Hogins served as a senior instructor for the
University of Colorado Anschutz School of Medicine and staff psychiatrist
at the Colorado Mental Health Institute in Pueblo. He was also an instructor
of psychopharmacology and adjunct faculty for the advanced psychiatric
nurse practitioner program at CSU Pueblo.
Prior to that, Dr. Hogins spent two years as a staff psychiatrist at Spanish
Peaks Behavioral Health Centers in Pueblo and two years as the attending
psychiatrist and resident supervisor at the BJC Behavioral Health Outpatient
Psychiatric Clinic in St. Louis.
“Dr. Hogins is a very important addition to our medical staff,”
said hospital CEO Bob Morasko. “We have a great need for a local
mental health practitioner who can care for our patients and make referrals
for them when needed. Dr. Hogins will be able to serve our community locally
and reduce the need for patients to travel for mental health services.”
After earning his osteopathic medical degree from Kansas City University
of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Missouri, Dr. Hogins completed
his psychiatry internship, residency and fellowship at Washington University
School of Medicine in St. Louis. He is a fellow of the American Psychiatric
Association and is board-certified in psychiatry by the American Board
of Psychiatry and Neurology.
Dr. Hogins will primarily see patients at the HRRMC Medical Clinics, 550
W. Highway 50, in Salida. He will accept appointments at the HRRMC Buena
Vista Health Center, 28374 CR 317, in Buena Vista, one day each week.
