SALIDA, Colo.-Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center announced today that Dr.
Amy Varble and Dr. Gina Alkes of Mountain Medical Center in Buena Vista
will be joining the HRRMC team and relocating to the HRRMC Buena Vista
Health Center in late June. Both will become employed by HRRMC.
Dr. Tom White of Mountain Medical Center signed a contract with HRRMC last
fall and has been serving in an administrative role as medical director
of the Buena Vista Health Center while continuing to see his patients
at the Mountain Medical Center office. He will also be relocating full
time to the Buena Vista Health Center this summer.
"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 once they transition over to 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."
Plans are underway to expand the clinic space at the Buena Vista Health
Center to accommodate the addition of the three additional providers.
"All three Mountain Medical physicians will continue to see patients
at their Oak Street office until the new office space is ready at our
Buena Vista clinic," said Morasko. "We look forward to expanding
our services to the community."
