VALLEY CITY, N.D. (JRMC) – Miles of travel after a sprain or strain is like adding insult to an already painful injury.
The burden of travel can add expense, stress and anxiety to the life of a person who should focus on healing. That’s why JRMC Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Timothy Volk, will see patients in Valley City in addition to his clinic in Jamestown.
“As a rural hospital, we know outcomes improve when people have access state-of-the-art care close to home,” said Trisha Jungels, JRMC Chief Nursing Officer and Interim President & CEO. “Our vision is to be the best rural hospital in the country. Offering specialty services in this area is one way to do that.”
Bismarck native, Dr. Volk joined JRMC in 2016. Dr. Volk completed his training in osteopathic medicine and his orthopedic residency in Pennsylvania. The father of three enjoys hunting, fishing and cheering for the Minnesota Vikings when he is not at work.
“No matter where a person lives, they should have access to high-quality healthcare,” said Dr. Volk. “At JRMC, we strive to be THE difference in healthcare. This is one way we can do that.”
Dr. Volk will see patients on the second Monday of each month at CHI Mercy Health, 570 Chautauqua Blvd. in Valley City beginning Dec. 10. Schedule direct at (701) 952-4878.
