St. John's Medical Center announces the seasonal opening of St. John's
Clinic at Teton Village, conveniently located at the Cody House near the
Bridger Gondola. The Clinic, open daily from November 27 through April
6, 2014, provides urgent and emergency medical care to Jackson Hole locals
as well as winter visitors. Walk-ins are welcome from 9:00 am until 4:30
pm, seven days a week.
"On the heels of national accolades received by the Jackson Hole Mountain
Resort and entire Jackson business community, St. John's Medical Center
looks forward to serving the community for the winter season. We are pleased
to be able to offer quality medical care and excellent service to support
the needs of visitors and locals alike, including at our convenient seasonal
clinic in Teton Village," said Lou Hochheiser, MD, CEO of St. John's
In addition to emergencies, the Clinic is available to assist with less
serious medical needs. These ailments -- common to travelers -- include
altitude sickness, dehydration, flu, and gastrointestinal illness.
One of the most valuable ways the Clinic administers emergency care for
injuries and other trauma is with digital X-ray. Experts take digital
X-ray images on site and a St. John's radiologist reads them in real
time at the hospital. Digital X-rays allow the emergency room physician
to begin assessing the patient's condition while the patient is being
transported, when necessary, to St. John's Medical Center in town.
The Clinic is under the medical direction of Adam Johnson, MD, from the
St. John's Medical Center Emergency Department. The staff includes
physicians who are board certified in Emergency Medicine, a physician
assistant, and other clinical and registration personnel.
