Floyd Valley Hospital administrator Mike Donlin announced the successful recruitment of Dr. Ellen Aquino.
Donlin told hospital trustees during a meeting Tuesday night that Dr. Aquino, her husband, Albert and their nine-year-old daughter, Alliem visited Le Mars last month.
Dr. Aquino also has her own private practice in Virginia. She is a board-certified family physician who will provide all facets of family health care services when she comes to Le Mars. She has a strong interest in women's health, including obstetric care.
She earned her undergraduate, graduate and medical degrees and completed a residency in the Philippines.
Family Medicine Clinic staff and physicians, Floyd Valley Hospital administration and the hospital's management partner, Avera McKennan of Sioux Falls have been working together to recruit more family doctors. They've been trying to fill vacancies after Dr. Nicholas Van Es and Dr. Jim Powell left the clinic to accept other jobs.
