Castleview Hospital and Eastern Utah Surgical Center announced Wednesday they will join forces to strengthen the surgical services available to patients in central and eastern Utah.
Effective immediately, the Surgical Center will be acquired by Castleview Hospital and renamed Castleview Hospital Surgery Center. It will continue to operate at its current location at 200 N. Fairgrounds Road, Suite 1, in Price.
"Castleview Hospital and Eastern Utah Surgical Center share a commitment to providing high quality surgical services to patients," said Mark Holyoak, CEO of Castleview Hospital. "Members of the Eastern Utah Surgical Center team have worked with our hospital for many years. Together, as part of one organization, we have a great opportunity to enhance surgical services across our community and better meet the needs of our patients."
Castleview Hospital's acquisition of Eastern Utah Surgical Center offers significant benefits to patients. By joining forces, the organizations can enhance healthcare services provided in Price and throughout the region, more efficiently respond to the growing demand for surgical services, and create a stronger continuum of care for all patients.
Eastern Utah Surgical Center will operate as a department of Castleview Hospital. Its six surgeons, who specialize in pediatric dentistry, dentistry, ophthalmology and oculoplastics surgical services, will join Castleview's medical staff. These surgeons are:
Jeffrey E. Hansen, MD
Timothy Byers, MD, PhD
Conley Call, MD
Trace Lund, DDS
Kevin Markham, DDS
Brett Lowe, DDS
The transition of Eastern Utah Surgical Center to a department of Castleview Hospital should be seamless for all patients, and there will be no changes in the surgical center's services or staff. Patients with questions about this transition may call 435-637-8689.
