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 November 27, 2014 through April
5, 2015, provides urgent 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.
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 physician in St. John's
emergency department to begin assessing the patient's condition while
the patient is being transported, when necessary, to the hospital 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.
