Dr. Oatis has been providing coverage at HRRMC since August 2016, but only recently became an active member of the medical staff. Prior to her time with HRRMC, Dr. Oatis was in clinical practice at the University of Colorado Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs.

Dr. Oatis graduated with honors from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in Richmond, Virginia. She completed a residency in internal medicine at the University of Maryland in Baltimore, and a fellowship in medical oncology and hematology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.

In addition to her medical training, Dr. Oatis has a law degree from Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, D.C. She practiced law for 11 years before attending medical school.

“We’ve seen an increase in the need for oncology services locally,” said CEO Bob Morasko. “Dr. Oatis has been a great addition to our oncology team for the last nine months, and we are thrilled to have her on staff so we can better serve the patients in our area.”
