Morrison :o take on Kopes-Kerr patients Due to personal reasons, which he outlined in a letter to his patients, Dr. Colin Kopes-Kerr will be leaving EPHC at the end of January. "We are very sorry to see him go -- he is loved by his patients and has made a significant difference in our community's awareness of preventative health care," said Linda Satchwell, EPHC public relations coordinator. "We wish him all the best in his future endeavors." Mary Morrison, FNP, will see patients at the Graeagle Clinic two days a week be- ginning in February to help ease the transition for Kopes- Kerr's patients. Morrison has deep roots in Plumas County. Her extensive med- ical knowledge and experi- ence, combined with a caring personality, has given her an extremely loyal patient base, said Satchwell. "We know patients at the Graeagle Clinic will appreciate her unique combination of skills." In addition, doctors at the Portola Clinic will soon have increased time to see clinic patients since the new emergency room hospitalist program will hae ER doctors following patients through- out their hospital stay. Clinic physicians, freed from their hospital duties, will soon be offering evening and weekend hours at the Portola Clinic to better serve the community. Any of these physicians, as well as family nurse practitioners, will be happy to see Kopes-Kerr's former patients. Patients looking for a new provider are encouraged to look at the "Find a Provider" page at; it lists a short biography for each provider. And EPHC encour- ages patients to ask questions about various providers so they can find the best fit for their particular needs. Call Tiffany Williams, executive assistant to the CEO, 832-6564, for more information. "Thanks to our community members as we work to remain flexible and continue to provide top quality care through inevitable changes in our organization," said Satchwell. to OF & CAR .ONE FLOOR & HOMIE 2830 Main Street' Susanvllle, 530-257-7788 " Cash, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and approved Checks Accepted f*  *Dk:cc;urd: -'.u re off oriqhcfi nd reaukr prices which may or'rocky not have res0tted in prior sales.
