St. Anthony Partners With Des Moines Orthopaedics Firm, Continuing Services for Area Patients

St. Anthony Regional Hospital (SARH) is pleased to announce a new partnership that will bring orthopaedic services to the Carroll area immediately and bring a team of orthopaedic surgeons to serve patients by mid-August of this year. St. Anthony is partnering with Capital Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, PC of Des Moines, who will provide full-time services from Dr. Richard Goding and Dr. Brian Crites along with others who are to be determined in the coming months. “This is a proud moment for St. Anthony and west central Iowans,” says President and CEO, Ed Smith. “We remained diligent in our efforts to continue orthopaedic services for our patients, and we are pleased to have found a tremendous partner in Capital Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. This announcement comes as we celebrate Dr. Thomas Dulaney’s outstanding service to our region over the past two decades. We wish him the best in his next adventure as he finalizes his relocation to Des Moines.” Dr. Crites will start seeing patients at St. Anthony beginning Tuesday, June 9 and will continue on each Tuesday thereafter. These services will complement those of Dr. Dulaney, who will continue to see patients until mid-August. At that time, Dr. Goding will begin full-time services at St. Anthony and additional surgeons will begin seeing patients one day per week. Dr. Crites specializes in general orthopaedics, arthroscopic surgery, sports medicine, knee and shoulder arthroscopy and knee reconstruction. Dr. Goding, who will relocate to Carroll with his family, comes to St. Anthony from his position as Director of the Joint Preservation Institute of Iowa in West Des Moines and as a practitioner at Wayne County Hospital in Corydon.
