HRRMC welcomes ENT physician to medical staff

Michele Streeter, M.D., has joined the medical staff of Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center and will specialize in medical and surgical treatment of the ear, nose and throat (ENT) at HRRMC Ear, Nose and Throat, 920 Rush Drive, Salida.Michele Streeter

Dr. Streeter is board certified in otolaryngology by the American Board of Otolaryngology. She earned her medical degree from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, and completed a general surgery internship and otolaryngology head and neck surgery residency at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky.

Prior to moving to the Upper Arkansas Valley, Dr. Streeter worked for over three years as a hospital-employed physician for St. Thomas More Hospital and Centura Health Physician Group in Canon City. Before that, she was a private-practice physician at Meadowcrest ENT and Facial Cosmetics Center in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

“Despite having lived across the USA and around the globe as a child in a military family, Colorado has always been home,” said Streeter. “The mountains are in my blood, and I'm excited to be a part of the vibrant mountain community of Salida. I look forward to partnering with HRRMC to provide high-quality healthcare to my new hometown neighbors.”

Dr. Streeter treats common ear, nose and throat conditions like hearing loss and tinnitus; chronic sinus disease; allergies; voice and upper swallowing disorders; head and neck cancer; and acute and chronic ear, nose and throat infections.

She also provides surgical services including tonsils and adenoid removal, ear surgery (including ear tubes), sinus surgery, nasal septoplasty, head and neck cancer removal, vocal surgery, skin cancer removal and reconstruction, and sleep apnea surgery.

“HRRMC is fortunate to have Dr. Streeter on our medical staff,” said hospital CEO Bob Morasko. “She will provide a broad spectrum of ear, nose and throat services to our community.”

Dr. Streeter will be located in the Wentz Foot and Ankle Specialists building on the hospital campus until HRRMC’s expansion project is complete in 2019. Call (719) 530-2000 to make an appointment or visit for more info.
