St. Anthony Regional Hospital has announced that orthopedic services, including surgeries and follow-up appointments, will continue through Des Moines Orthopedic Surgeons (DMOS) at St. Anthony in Carroll. Services are provided by Surgeon Thomas Dulaney, M.D., of DMOS, who has served St. Anthony for nearly 18 years. The St. Anthony orthopedic program is recognized for its high quality, outstanding patient satisfaction.
Over the past year, St. Anthony partnered with McFarland Clinic to compliment DMOS orthopedic services in Carroll by offering visiting orthopedic specialists at the hospital. As those visiting physician contracts expire this summer, St. Anthony and McFarland Clinic will continue to recruit a full-time orthopedic surgeon to the community.
“Nationwide, recruitment and retention of orthopedic surgeons continues to be a challenge for rural hospitals. However, we remain committed to providing outstanding orthopedic care to the residents of west central Iowa and will continue to add additional talented surgeons to our hospital,” said Ed Smith, St. Anthony President and CEO. “We invite you to join us in this search by contacting orthopedists you may know personally and sharing this opportunity with them.”
“St. Anthony will remain synonymous with providing excellent orthopedic services along with top notch rehabilitation follow-up care right here in Carroll,” said Eric Hammer, St. Anthony Vice President of Regional Operations. “We anticipate focused recruitment of additional orthopedists to continue.”
