Beginning on July 15th, the Sunshine Community Health Center will have a new provider. Executive Director for the Health Center, David Bryant, says that Dr. Anne Yoshino will be working as a half-time employee, which Bryant says is comparable to the amount of time that former Medical Director Dr. Mary Loeb spent as a healthcare provider. The remainder of Dr. Loeb’s time was spent on her directorial role. Bryant says that the Health Center is still searching for a well-qualified candidate for the Medical Director role.
KTNA also recently spoke with Dr. Mary Loeb. Dr. Loeb says she is currently evaluating how to transition from her position at the Clinic, and she does not currently envision opening a private practice. She says the Clinic is in a rebuilding process, and that she had hoped that a new Medical Director would have been chosen to step in immediately after her departure from the position.
Dr. Loeb did not offer specifics regarding why her contract was not renewed by Sunshine Community Health Center, but said she felt she had done the best job she could. She says that this, “is a community with integrity and passion,” and that she believes the Board of Directors represents those values. Dr. Loeb expresses her gratitude for the opportunity to serve the community.
