Scott joins TCHC emergency department

Body: 

Tri-County Health Care recently added Ryan Scott, D.O., to its emergency department. Scott's new role enhances Tri-County's goal of having the department fully staffed by physicians dedicated specifically to emergency medicine.

Scott attended medical school at Lincoln Memorial University and completed his residency at the University of Minnesota, St. Cloud. He is board certified in family medicine. A love of science and physiology along with the opportunity to improve the health of local communities is what drew him to the medical field. He chose Tri-County because of its advanced services and hometown feel.

Tri-County's emergency department is a Level 4 Trauma Center and is one of only 13 hospitals in Minnesota that are CALS designated facilities, which demonstrates excellence in four main areas of emergency medicine: emergency skills and knowledge, effective provider teams, patient-focused care and systems and appropriate equipment.

The emergency department is also fully staffed with registered nurses, operates a comprehensive Telestroke program in conjunction with the St. Cloud Hospital Stroke Center and features a helipad and EMS flight services.
