Rural residents often experience barriers to healthcare that limit their ability to get the care they need. The National Rural Health Association says that 25 percent of the population lives in rural areas; though only 10% of doctors practice there.
Clay County Medical Center celebrates 29 years of service provided by Dr. John Devine through Associated Urologists in Manhattan. Associated Urologists was founded in 1974 by Dr. Fred Freeman in Manhattan, Kansas. Throughout the years, their practice has grown, adding several physicians, nurse practitioners and support staff. Their willingness to serve our specialty clinic has been greatly appreciated.
Dr. Devine’s last day seeing patients through the specialty clinic in Clay Center will be July 31st. We are very pleased that his colleagues, Dr. Laki Evangelidis and Dr. Felipe Rosso are willing to see his patients through the specialty clinic in Clay Center.
Dr. John Devine completed a Bachelor of Arts degree from Kansas Newman College and his medical degree at the University of Kansas Medical School (Kansas City, Kansas). He completed his residency program at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City for Urology and St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City Missouri for general surgery. Dr. Devine is Board Certified through the American Board of Urology since 1990. Professional organizations include the American Urology Association; Kansas Medical Society and the Riley County Medical Society.
Dr. Devine is married to wife, Marty and resides in Manhattan, KS. The couple has three children – two sons and one daughter. He is scaling back in practice in order to have more time for family and hobbies which include art and gardening.
We are grateful for Dr. Devine’s years of service in Clay Center, said Austin Gillard, CEO at Clay County Medical Center. “He was one of the first physicians to serve residents of Clay County through our outpatient clinic program. Knowing that his associates, Dr. Evangelidis and Dr. Rosso are willing to continue delivering quality medical care to patients in our rural community is vital to continuity of care.”
