DHCHD Brings Orthopedic Services to Dalhart

We are proud to announce the addition of orthopedic services to our offerings. Beginning on September 24th, patients will see John Swope, PA-C at Dalhart Family Medicine Clinic for clinic visits, and Dr. Wilson H. Landers will come to Coon Memorial Hospital monthly to provide surgical services.

Dr. Wilson H. Landers, an orthopedic surgeon at Golden Plains Hospital in Borger, Texas, will bring his 30 years of experience to Dalhart once a month to provide orthopedic surgery to our community. John Swope will see patients Monday through Friday and has been with DFMC since February as a Physician’s Assistant. After interning at two different orthopedic clinics in Lubbock, he developed a strong interest in the specialty.

“I really have a passion for orthopedic medicine. We want to offer as much care as we can here so people don’t have to go out of town to meet their needs. I’m excited to be able to provide orthopedic care here in Dalhart,” Swope said.

Dr. Landers spent much of his career in Lubbock, Texas, with Ellis County Bone and Joint, and then in his own private practice. He joined Covenant Medical Group before moving to Borger, Texas where he currently practices.

“Our mission is to provide quality healthcare close to home. Bringing this specialty to our town is another way we are taking care of our community,” said Loree Tamayo, Chief Executive Officer.

Tamayo joined DHCHD in August as CEO and quickly got to work bringing her vision for the hospital district to life.

“Finding new ways to serve the citizens of Dallam and Hartley counties is our goal,” Tamayo said. “We are proud to offer the healthcare services any major city would have, but with the personal touch only a small town can provide.”
