 9/13/17 - Canon City needs more internal medicine physician care [Sport360]

With the recent departure of two internal medicine doctors, St. Thomas More Hospital`s Physician Group has closed its former clinic and moved a lone internal-medicine nurse practitioner to a new site.

Internal medicine physicians Dr. Thomas McGuire and Dr. Stephen Barbee have left the busy clinic and the remaining internal medicine provider, Laura Wells, a nurse practitioner, has moved from the 1145 Ohio Ave. clinic to work out of the family medicine clinic at 614 Yale Place.

Consolidation of the two practices into one location is temporary as both will move into the hospital`s under-construction medical office building, which is expected to open in March, according to Mallory Madden, hospital spokeswoman.

Wells is working to see as many of the more than 1,000 patients that she can.

"We are very confident in Wells` skills, experience and ability to continue offering internal medicine services with the same staff supporting her in the new location," said Dirk Hobbs, director of physician practices for Centura Health South State Operating Group. "We are actively recruiting for another internal medicine physician."

"Though internal medicine physicians are difficult to recruit, especially in rural areas, we are optimistic about the candidates we are currently vetting and interviewing for the open position," Madden said. "Patients of Barbee and McGuire are now under the care of Wells as well as the St. Thomas More Physician Group family medicine providers."

Pueblo is home to more than 80 internal medicine medical doctors and more than 40 doctor of osteopathy doctors, according to

In Canon City, McGuire recently retired after 25 years of service to the community. Barbee is working to set up his own practice.
