//Physician Appreciation – Take time to thank those who keep you Healthy!

This week, March 24 through March 30, is National Physicians Week and Castro County Healthcare (CCH) invites the community to help honor their three physicians. March 30 also honors them on National Doctor’s Day.

These national holidays are to honor our physicians and all the work they do for their patients and the community of Castro County. It is through their hard work and dedication that we are kept healthy. CCHD invites you to thank them for doing that for you and your loved ones.

CCHD strives to hire physicians that work towards their vision statement, “to be better than the day before.” CCH appreciates their physicians continued dedication to provide high quality and effective medical care to Castro County and the surrounding areas.

Castro County Healthcare’s physicians are Gary Hardee, M.D., Cobra Shanley, D.O., and Stephanie Bryan, D.O.

Dr. Hardee began working for the Medical Center of Dimmitt in July of 1985. For the past 34 years, Hardee has established his Family Practice in Castro County. His years of experience with all ages of patients contribute to his high level of expertise. Dr. Hardee is also the Medical Director of the new long-term living and senior living facility, Country View Living. He is also CCHD’s Chief of Staff for 2019.

Dr. Shanley joined the Medical Center of Dimmitt three years ago in July of 2016. She is accepting new patients as she steadily builds her practice in Castro County. She enjoys women’s health along with all other aspects of patient care. Dr. Shanley is also Plains Memorial Hospital’s Trauma Coordinator.

Dr. Bryan joined the Medical Center of Dimmitt in August of 2017. Since then she has been excited to serve the Castro County community. Currently, Dr. Bryan primarily works in the Plains Memorial Hospitals’ Emergency Room.

Castro County Healthcare would also like to recognize their Family Nurse Practitioners (FNP), Peggy Birkenfeld (FNP-C, MSN), Susan Murray Hochstein (FNP-C, MSN), and Sheila Higgins (FNP-C, MSN), who help provide lifelong comprehensive care to their patients.
