High Quality, Compassionate Care at GP Surgery Center
When the Grants Pass Surgery Center (GPSC) opened in 1998 at 1601 NW Hawthorne Avenue, it was the result of several local surgeons pooling their resources to better serve the community. The list of owners now includes five general surgeons (Drs. Alexis Alexandridis, Mark Deatherage, Corey Fawcett, David Oehling and Brett Shulte); four orthopedic surgeons (Drs. James Van Horne, Robert Bents, James Dowd, and Bruce Perry); three podiatric surgeons (John Castle, DPM, Monika Froehlich, DPM, and Mark Simchuck, DPM); a dental surgeon (John Waschak, DDS); an ENT surgeon (Daniel Fear, MD); and one primary care physician (Brian Mateja, DO). Most have lived, and practiced medicine, in Southern Oregon for decades. The CEO is Steve Loftesnes.
"Our doctors, nurses, techs and staff are amazing," Loftesnes said. "I have never worked anywhere where I've received the amount of praise and high level of appreciation that I get here about our staff. They genuinely care about and take care of their patients ... and it shows."
