“Our goal is to maximize all of our resources to provide the best healthcare at our Meeker campus,” said Ken Harman, Pioneers CEO. “We are excited to announce the arrival of several new and expanded services that help us accomplish that goal.”
General Surgery Services: James Jex, M.D. has joined the PMC medical staff practice as a general surgeon. He started June 1, 2011. In addition to surgery Dr. Jex will be seeing patients in the clinic and providing emergency department coverage.
Dr. Jex has over 26 years of experience. He attended George Washington University and completed his residency at St. Luke’s Hospital in Ohio. Dr. Jex is a U.S. Navy veteran and had practiced in Colorado and New Mexico. “I grew up in a small town in Utah and love practicing medicine in the southwest, Meeker is in a way, coming home,” said Dr. Jex.
Brandon Aven, CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist) joined the staff in mid-May and will be providing anesthesia services. He graduated with a Masters of Science in Nursing from Arkansas State University. Additionally, Brandon holds a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration, an MBA, and his Bachelors of Nursing. He brings several years of critical care nursing experience with him. My wife and I are excited about Meeker, it offers the family environment; a great place to raise our two boys,” said Brandon Aven.
Expanding Diagnostic Care: Pioneers Medical Center has partnered with Rangely District Hospital to offer onsite MRI tests. MRI services will be available twice per month in Meeker. “This is a great additional service,” said Dr. Albert Krueger, PMC Chief of Staff., “ We are able to offer this diagnostic service at a great price and because it is digital, we will have radiologist interpretations back to us very quickly.”
PMC has invested in a new piece of laboratory equipment. The Siemens Dimension Xpand Plus™ expands the number of tests PMC offers which will get results to the doctors, such as that behavioral therapist, faster and ultimately to the patient quicker.
