Western Valley Family Practice has joined Family Health West, the parent company of Fruita's Colorado Canyons Health and Medical Center.
Western Valley is a group of primary care practice of six doctors, three physician assistants and one nurse practitioner. The practice also plans to expand soon.
"We are excited to join the Family Health West family," Western Valley Family Practice Dr. Kurtis Holmes said in a press release "We already provide vast and comprehensive services, and this union will just expand and provide more primary care, specialty care and cutting-edge treatments for thousands of existing and new patients. Considering the shortage of primary care physicians in not only the Grand Valley but nationwide, the timing couldn't be better."
Western Valley Family Practice has two locations: 281 N. Plum St. in Fruita and at 2237 Redlands Parkway in Grand Junction.
