Effective October, 2014, the management of 4 Peaks Clinic in Driggs, ID, will revert from St. John's Medical Center, Jackson, WY, to Scott Thomas, MD. Dr. Thomas, who founded the clinic, has been the primary provider at 4 Peaks Clinic since its inception. Last week, St. John's mailed patients of 4 Peaks Clinic a letter detailing minimal changes related to the new management.
“St. John’s has elected to dedicate our resources to other programs where we can work collaboratively with Teton Valley Health Care (TVHC) to improve health and wellness for residents in Teton County, ID," said St. John's CEO Lou Hochheiser, MD. "We've had preliminary discussions about opportunities that offer value to both organizations."
Keith Gnagey, TVHC CEO, adds, “Our organizations share a common service area due to the high percentage of commuters to Jackson and a combination of healthcare services. We believe that by affiliating more closely, we can better address any gaps in access to cohesive medical care.”
