Anne Phyfer, right, family practice physician at St. Luke Hospital and Living Center, talks with Karen Williams, middle, and Margaret Wilson, both of Marion, during a “meet and greet” reception Friday at the hospital’s clinic. Jeremy Armstrong, chief executive officer at St. Luke Hospital, said hospital officials continued their search for a medical doctor after Linda Skiles left the area more than two years earlier. “We are glad to have (Phyfer) here. We were looking for a long time and it was the right time for both of us,” he said. Phyfer said she is glad to have the opportunity and Marion was what she was looking for. Prior to moving to Marion, Phyfer said she was an emergency room physician at Southwest Medical Center in Liberal. “I like the community and I can see how proud (residents) are and, it shows.” For more information or to schedule an appointment, call Phyfer at 620-382-2033 or stop by the St. Luke Physician Clinic, 504 S. Roosevelt St., Marion.
