Dr. Brent Blue announces resignation from St. John’s via Facebook

JACKSON, Wyo. — Dr. Brent announced his resignation from St. John’s Health on Facebook yesterday evening, Oct. 14.

According to the post, his resignation was prompted by the prohibited use of his personal computer while working at St. John’s.

“Unfortunately, St. John Health had told me I cannot use my personal computer at work even though other doctors do plus it is critical for my Coroner responsibilities,” he stated in the post.

“They have essentially forced me to resign effective February 10 due to this prohibition.”

“I am prohibited by contract from saying anything derogatory about the hospital but you would think with all the recent publicity, they would have been honored to be associated with me. Nothing above is derogatory. It is just factual,” the statement said.

Blue says he will return to private practice, but offered little details about his future plans.

Blue is the Teton County Coroner. He recently released the autopsy results of the high-profile Gabby Petito case and has appeared on national media outlets discussing aspects of the case. He was elected as coroner in 2014 and won reelection in 2018. The current term ends on Jan. 1, 2023.

In Sept. of 2020, St. John’s Health acquired Blue’s Emerg-A-Care clinic on West Broadway. St. John’s took over operations, renaming the clinic, St. John’s Health Family Health & Urgent Care clinic.
