Family practice physician Joyce Ann Roberts has decided not to leave her present family practice in Portales, N.M., and come to St. Luke Hospital in Marion.
News of her decision was released last week by Roger Schroeder, St. Luke marketing director.
“Dr. Roberts was apologetic for the change of heart, but was not willing to reconsider,” Schroeder said.
Schroeder said officials at St. Luke Hospital have reopened the search with recruiters.
For more information, call Schroeder at 620-382-2177 or stop by the facility at 535 S. Freeborn, Marion.
