Cherokee Regional Medical Center (CRMC) is pleased to announce that Dr. Seth Winterton has joined the medical staff at CRMC. Dr. Winterton began seeing patients in the CRMC Emergency Department on August 15th.
Dr. Winterton received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. He attended Medical School at the University of Nevada School of Medicine where he received his M.D. degree. Earlier this summer, he completed his family medicine residency at Utah Valley Hospital in Provo, Utah.
Dr. Winterton, and his wife, Stephanie, purchased a home and relocated to Cherokee in July. They are excited for the opportunity to live in the Midwest and raise their family in a rural community setting. They have three children-Mason (6), Owen (3), and
Graham (1). Stephanie is a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), but is currently focused on getting the family settled and being a wonderful mother to their three boys. According to Dr. Winterton, she does plan to resume her dental career on a part-time basis in the future.
"My wife and I feel that this is where God wants us, and Cherokee provides an environment where we can meet our career goals," says Dr. Winterton. "We have been impressed with the community and the kind reception we have received. Everyone has been very welcoming to our family."
In addition to his role in the Emergency Department, Dr. Winterton will be providing primary care services at the new Cherokee Regional Clinic. He has special interests in rural healthcare, emergency medicine, family care, pediatrics, sports medicine, and wellness advocacy. He is looking forward to practicing and getting to know the residents of Cherokee and the surrounding area.
"I am excited to gain a variety of experience while practicing in a safe, family oriented community where I can make a difference," explains Dr. Winterton. "Rural healthcare is demanding but very rewarding. I want to make difference in the lives of all of my patients."
Dr. Winterton will begin seeing patients in his family practice upon completion of the new Cherokee Regional Clinic building this fall.
"Cherokee Regional Medical Center is pleased to have a new, young physician of this caliber join our organization," states Matt Johnson, CEO/ President. "Dr. Winterton will be a great compliment to the rest of our medical staff and a tremendous asset to the Cherokee area in general. We look forward to helping Dr. Winterton build his medical practice, and watching him and Stephanie become well established within the community."
