"This is an opportunity to meet many of our sub-specialists in an informal setting, which many patients have told us they find valuable," said communications officer Karen Connelly. “The new doctors represent an expansion of St. John's Health in the areas of oncology/cancer care, cardiology, neurology, pulmonology, and sleep medicine."
