San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital’s popular orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Mark Reis, gave a presentation to the Banning Chamber of Commerce last week, at their Community Luncheon.
Held at the top of Casino Morongo Resort and Spa, in their 360 Lounge, Dr. Reis spoke to a room full of people about his work at the hospital, his career, and the latest developments in orthopedic surgery.
Dr. Reis praised San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital, noting that the new Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit building is “a really important thing for a community.” He added that the planned Patient Care Building will be a vital next step in the hospital’s development.
“(San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital) is a great place to go,” Dr. Reis added.
He spoke highly of San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital’s doctors and staff, explaining that many of the hospital’s associates, including CEO Mark Turner, the hospital’s two anesthesiologists, Devin Borna and Farzad Farrokhi, and Dr. Reis himself are all at the peak of their careers.
“Lots of people are interested in this community,” said Dr. Reis. “Who wouldn’t want to be in Banning and Beaumont…Why wouldn’t a guy like me want to come here and be useful?”
Dr. Reis talked about his schooling and time in the Navy, as well as his career, and the differences and similarities in working in both large and small hospitals. He also talked his specialty training in sports medicine, as well as his philosophy that good medicine should be performed locally.
“I’m really excited and passionate about that here,” said Dr. Reis.
Dr. Reis detailed the many surgeries he performs at San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital, including shoulder surgery, hip and knee replacements, and hip fractures, explaining how they are performed and how patients benefit from having these procedures done locally.
“I love being in Banning and Beaumont,” Dr. Reis said. “I’m grateful that there are such great people here.”
