St. John’s invites community to meet new providers

JACKSON, Wyo. — St. John’s Health welcomed three new specialists to its team of healthcare providers in November. At the end of the month, the public will have a chance to meet them outside hospital walls.

St. John’s is hosting a public reception Tuesday, January 28 from 5–6:30 p.m. in the Jackson Room at the Wort Hotel. The evening will include a short program at 5:30 p.m.

“This is an opportunity to meet many of our sub-specialists in an informal setting, which many patients have told us they find valuable,” said Communications Officer Karen Connelly. “The new doctors represent an expansion of St. John’s Health in the areas of oncology/cancer care, cardiology, neurology, pulmonology, and sleep medicine.”

Other physicians from the medical group, and new and current staff members from St. John’s Health and Teton Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation will be available to meet the public.

Appetizers, beverages, and a cash bar will be available.

Meet the providers:

Huntsman Cancer Institute oncologist Benjamin Solomon, MD, is board-certified in hematology, oncology, and internal medicine. Dr. Solomon completed his fellowship training in hematology and oncology at the University of Utah School of Medicine.
