SALIDA, Colo.-Family medicine physicians Tom White, M.D., Amy Varble, M.D., and Gina
Alkes, M.D., are relocating from Mountain Medical Center, 36 Oak St.,
Buena Vista, to the HRRMC Buena Vista Health Center, 28374 County Road
317, on June 27. All three physicians will be employed by Heart of the
Rockies Regional Medical Center, and the Mountain Medical Center office
"I expect this transition to be convenient for current Mountain Medical
patients," said hospital CEO Bob Morasko. "They may continue
to see their same physician at the Buena Vista Health Center. Medical
records for Mountain Medical patients will automatically be transferred
over to the HRRMC clinic unless a patient submits a written request to
Mountain Medical Center to send their records elsewhere."
The hospital is making a capital investment of almost $375,000 to remodel
the clinic and parking lot to accommodate the new physicians. They will
join family nurse practitioners Jan Ommen, Linda Typer and John Daugherty
as primary care providers at the clinic. Drs. Varble and Alkes will also
provide obstetric services.
To make an appointment with any of the HRRMC Buena Vista Health Center
providers, call 719-395-9048.
HRRMC Buena Vista Health Center is a full-service rural health clinic with
laboratory and medical imaging on site, as well as internal medicine,
orthopedics, rehabilitation and visiting specialists. More information
about the clinic is available under the Services tab at hrrmc.com.
