Hospital Happenings: August 2018

New Doctors to Care for Your Greatest Needs

Your friends & family expect – and deserve – great care. That is why part of what makes Montrose Memorial Hospital “Friends & Family caring for Friends & Family” isn’t just the friendly care, but skilled care given by the right medical professionals. The quality of our care is made possible in part thanks to the recruitment of physicians and care providers with the skills and knowledge to address our community’s greatest health needs.

Having most recently practiced in Grand Junction, Dr. Emmons is Board Certified in both hematology and medical oncology and will be a valuable asset to those in our community affected by cancer.
