March 2014: TRANSITIONS: That word is at the same time exciting and scary, fraught with change. Life is constantly changing. if you are not changing, you are probably stagnating. In 1993 we moved our family to Mossyrock to begin a rural family practice and to raise our family. In 1996 I moved my practice from Morton to Mossyrock and Ann Morgan, PA-C moved here with her family to join me. We have worked together for 15 of the last 18 years serving the people of East Lewis County. In 2014 Ann will be making another transition to Colorado. Both their sons are grown and gone and Rick has been commuting long range for 18 years and is looking forward to a much shorter commute. I hold Ann in the highest esteem for her medical skills and her compassion for people, she is truly one of a kind.
In 2011 I sold my practice to Morton General Hospital and began working in the emergency department part time. And now in October of 2014 I will be transitioning to the emergency depart full time and turning my clinic practice over to another physician.
It has been a great honor and privilege to care for you and your families the past 21 years. I have come to consider you a vital part of my life. The trust you have given to me is a very humbling thing, and it has been my privilege to help you navigate through the health matters of your lives. I will definitely miss the clinic visits and the friendships I have formed. I will continue to serve the residents of east Lewis County in my capacity as an ER physician. I will still see you in the local stores and at the local high school athletic events. If you are fairly new to the clinic, I apologize for not getting to know you as well as I know other patients. I am happy to say that the staff will remain intact and continue to serve you in the clinic just as they have over the years.
The hospital is actively recruiting a midlevel provider and a physician. I will be intimately involved in that entire process. The hospital administration and I are in accord in our desire to find the type of physician that will continue to provide care in the manner you have become accustomed to. Continuing the tradition of uptodate modern health technology and learning with a country doctor's approach to good customer service is a top priority. Riffe Medical Center looks forward to serving you and your families in the future, and if needed, I'll see you in the emergency department. But hopefully you won't need to see me there too often. In reality this is not good bye, but rather "see you later".
Thank you for the honor of being your doctor,
Kevin W. McCurry, MD
