New surgeon kick-starts hospital collaboration

Feather Publishing
8/4/2014

“The goal is working together to the mutual benefit of both hospitals. This is best for the patients in our county. It’s the difference between seeing someone as a competitor rather than a friend and an ally. The repertoire of specialists and facilities just expands the opportunities for patients. It gives patients more opportunities and choices.”

Dr. Jeff Kepple
Plumas District Hospital CEO
Eastern Plumas Health Care and Plumas District Hospital are making good on their promise to work together to bring top-quality, broad-spectrum health care to all residents of Plumas County. Dr. Mark Williams, the new general surgeon who will be shared by both hospitals, is the first tangible proof of this new era of collaboration.

Williams is a USC Medical School trained, board-certified general surgeon with medical school honors in general surgery, urology and plastic surgery. He received an Outstanding Surgery Resident Award, and he has also taught, researched and published extensively.

Why is he coming to Plumas County? Because, he said, he has lived all over the country and the world, and he’s ready to settle down. “I know all these different places,” he said, “and the mountains are what I like best.” In addition, he “wants to be a part of a community and help that community.”
