There will be some doctor changes that will apply when Geary Community Hospital is merged into Stormont Vail Health on Jan. 1.
Ashley King, GCH Public Relations Specialist, has confirmed that Dr. Jason Butler will remain at GCH in the emergency room on a full time basis. He has been employed by the Rural Health Clinic as a family practice physician. "And so we're excited that he will still be here to help with our population when they're at their most vulnerable point. "
"Dr. Todd Frieze is going over to Konza Prairie Community Health Center, " said King. He has been working as a family practice physician at GCH. King also noted that Chris Gardiner, physician assistant, is retiring at the end of the year. All three have been Geary Community Hospital employees.
