Flake reviews accomplishments of MPMC with 2000 patients served in Winter Park Urgent Care and a possible Grand Lake Primary Clinic
Middle Park Medical Foundation’s annual BASH fundraiser raised the roof at Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort and Spa, earning a total of $70,000, with over $22,000 of that set aside for scholarship funds for both current Middle Park Medical Center (MPMC) employees and for Grand County high school seniors interested in a career in healthcare. Set to the tunes of Denver-based band Premium Diesel, over 200 guests partied for a good cause.
MPMC had many accomplishments from the previous year to celebrate. CEO Robert Flake announced that MPMC activity for 2017 included over 7,000 ED visits, over 19,000 clinic visits, and more than 1,000 surgical cases. Additionally, over 2,000 patients were served in the Winter Park Urgent Care and Family Practice since opening in September 2017.
CEO Flake continued into 2018 stating it looks to be even more eventful. Dr. Bob Ratcliff, a general surgeon with a fellowship in colo-rectal surgery, is working for MPMC two days per week, and will move to a full time status in mid-May. He will live in Grand County. Dr. Adam Wilson will move to Grand County as a full time resident in July 2018. He will be employed by Steamboat Orthopedic Associates (SOA) and will be a collaboration with MPMC. On-going discussions are also being held with the town of Grand Lake to open a Grand Lake Primary Clinic.
“BASH 2018 was a great event!” said Jason Bryan, the newly appointed Middle Park Medical Foundation Executive Director. “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the attendees, the sponsors, and donors. This was a funfilled evening benefitting Middle Park Medical Center. Thank you to all for your generosity. As donors to our organization, you are a part of something really special – you are a part of our community – you make everything we do possible.”
