Lake Regional Health System is pleased to announce that on June 5, several providers will join the expanding Eldon clinic. Trent Russell, M.D., a board certified pediatrician who currently practices in Osage Beach, will expand his practice to Eldon. In addition, Gary N. Thomsen, M.D., who is board certified in family medicine, and Sherry Schwartz-Banner, NP-C, will join Julie Russell, FNP, in providing care for all ages.

“These caring professionals have extensive experience and are committed to providing exceptional care to our patients,” said Michael Burcham, vice president of Lake Regional Physician Practices. “Women’s health services will be available Monday through Friday. Plus, specialists in audiology, cardiology, ENT, general surgery, orthopedics, sleep medicine and urology will be on site regularly. In addition, a pharmacy located on the first floor will offer competitive pricing, convenient drive-thru service and free delivery.”

The expanded Lake Regional Clinic – Eldon will open in September. The project, which began last July, includes a two-story, 20,000-square-foot addition, as well as renovations to the existing clinic.

“This additional space will allow us to offer a whole new level of care, including convenient access to specialists,” Burcham said. “Women’s health services will be available Monday through Friday.
