Poudre Valley Health System has announced that it opened a clinic in Loveland recently as a way to expand primary health care services in the city and nearby areas, and offer patients convenient access to advanced medical services at nearby Medical Center of the Rockies.
Foxtrail Family Medicine, 1625 Foxtrail Drive, a block south of MCR, will be collaboratively managed by PVHS and Associates in Family Medicine.
The clinic will offer a full spectrum of family medicine which includes pediatric and adult health care, as well as obstetrics.
Day-to-day medical services will be provided through Associates in Family Medicine, which operates five other medical clinics and an urgent care center in Fort Collins and a clinic in Windsor.
Rulon Stacey, PVHS president and CEO, said the clinic and its location near MCR "will be a tremendous advantage to residents of Loveland and nearby areas."
"As the region’s major medical provider, PVHS has the goal of offering world-class health care services that are easily accessible," he said.
"We already have a very good complement of excellent primary care providers on the MCR campus, but, as the hospital continues to grow, Foxtrail Family Medicine will help us continue to meet the additional need for primary health care services in the community."
Dr. Jim Sprowell, executive director of Associates in Family Medicine, said residents of the I-25 and U.S. Highway 34 area, which has one of the West’s most rapidly expanding populations, will benefit from the easy access to a full range of family health care.
"For patients, Foxtrail Family Medicine is in a very convenient location with the presence of MCR’s diagnostic, imaging and other advanced services essentially next door," Dr. Sprowell said.
With hours of operation from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, Foxtrail Family Medicine’s medical services will be provided by Dr. Brad Schnee. He will be joined in January by a second family medicine physician.
Dr. Schnee practiced family medicine in Baraboo, Wisc., a community near Madison, from 1996 to early this summer when he left the community to work for Poudre Valley Health System and Associates in Family Medicine. Dr. Schnee resides in Loveland.
In Baraboo, Dr. Schnee practiced the full spectrum of family medicine and plans to do likewise at the Foxtrail clinic. He was a recent chief of staff of St. Clare Hospital in Wisconsin and was medical director of the hospital’s rehabilitation department and a local nursing home.
