Gooding Family Physicians Joins With North Canyon Medical Center
Gooding, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - The Gooding Family Physicians say they are joining with North Canyon Medical Center.
“Over the past few years it has become increasingly difficult to manage all the changes in health care and still maintain the quality time we want to dedicate to our patients. Over the past several years we have carefully considered how we can best serve our patients and our community. During that time we have worked closely with North Canyon Medical Center to discuss our practice integrating with the hospital. Today the agreement has been finalized and we are so excited to share the news with our patients and community,” stated Reid Lofgran, DO. “Initiating and finalizing this agreement, with the hospital, will allow us more time to focus on patient care while the hospital manages the business operations,” he stated.
As part of the agreement, the providers and staff at Gooding Family Physicians will be employed by North Canyon Medical Center. Patients of Gooding Family Physicians will see few changes as the current services will remain at the current GFP location, including; scheduling appointments, medication refills, payments, and billing questions.
“This agreement is a first for North Canyon Medical Center and a win-win for the community. With healthcare focus moving towards population health, this integration will position both NCMC and GFP to meet the needs of our patients,” stated Lucy Osborne, Partner’s in Healthcare Board Chairman.
