  La Farge Medical Clinic

   The La Farge Medical Clinic is in dire need of medical doctors. Dr. Taryn Lawyer has taken a new position in Rchland Center and Dr. Sedwick will be leaving in the next six months to take a position at the Vernon Memorial Hospital Emergence Room.  With these departures, it leaves Dr. DeLine as the lone M.D. working with Tamson Morgan, Kelly Scheder and Kelli Pasch as medical staff.

   We need to express our concerns to the Hospital Board members about the importance of them using all available resources to get us some doctors.  We cannot lose this clinic.
