Tree planting will honor bariatric surgeons

Scottsbluff, NE - A tree will be planted Tuesday evening in honor of Regional West Physicians Clinic surgeons Jeff Holloway, MD; Melissa Stade, MD; and Glen Forney, MD. The tree will be presented on behalf of all previous weight loss surgery patients.

Mona Urwin, RN, Bariatric Coordinator said, "Each of the surgeons has played a significant role in transforming the lives of over 1500 weight loss surgery patients. A tree is a symbol of new life, which is what many people have found after the care they received here at Regional West."

All weight loss surgery patients and support persons are invited to attend the ceremony which will be held at 6 p.m. in the north patient dismissal area.
