Updated clinic provides quality orthopedic care, close to home
From Vitality, Spring 2016
Orthopedic care is one of the many types of essential healthcare services provided by Geary Community Hospital. In mid-January 2016, GCH solidified their partnership with Dr. Adam Chase, Dr. Peter Hodges and physician assistants, Daren Badura and Justin Schlepp to provide orthopedic services at the GCH Flint Hills Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Clinic.
“There was a need for orthopedic services in Junction City, so they contacted myself and Dr. Adam Chase, and we had a mutually-beneficial deal made and are now covering the orthopedic clinics,” said Dr. Peter Hodges.
“This partnership has already proven to be a very beneficial way of providing a continuity of care for our orthopedic patients and keeping services local,” said Joe Stratton, GCH Chief Executive Officer. “We’ve already received great feedback from several patients and families thankful we are able to provide these services locally. We believe this collaborative effort and long-term commitment between each group will better serve the residents of Geary County by minimizing patients having to seek care elsewhere.”
Both doctors provide general inpatient and outpatient orthopedic care at Geary Community Hospital four days per week as well as orthopedic surgery services. A few of the provided services include injections, joint replacement, strains and sprains, sports injuries, and broken bones. The clinic is still in the same spot, but another room was added and the space was organized for more efficient use.
“We now have places for our physician assistants to dictate and we have pretty much the same lobby, office, and they also gave us a dictation pod,” said Dr. Hodges. “This space gives us a greater ability to see more patients and provide the orthopedic care they need.”
