Dr. Daniel Dickerson has resigned from Eudora Family Care effective at the end of 2014. According to Belinda Rehmer, a spokesperson for Lawrence Memorial Hospital which owns Eudora Family Care, Dickerson will be leaving to do research. There was no word on where or what type of research he will be doing.
Rehmer stated that Dr. Joe Hawkins will be joining the practice as a replacement to Dickerson, but as of this time, a start date for Hawkins has not been determined. Rehmer said that, depending on when Hawkins’ starts, Dr. Elizabeth Stamper or a physician from the LMH system will likely fill in serving Dickerson’s patients during any interim period.
“LMH cares a lot about the Eudora community and has invested a lot in the Eudora community,” Rehmer said. “We intend to continue to provide excellent healthcare in the Eudora community.”
Dickerson declined to be interviewed for this story, but it is believed that Dickerson will continue his role on the Eudora School Board. Dickerson has been in Eudora since 2001.
