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.”
