Why practice in Grand Junction? This is a year round recreation and vacation area yet offers a very sophisticated medical community. Grand Junction is a growing community of 130,000 (county) with excellent schools including a four year college, excellent arts community, and a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. There are world-class opportunities locally in mountain biking, hiking, skiing, fishing, boating, and hunting. Colorado National Monument sits at the edge of Grand Junction and there are four national parks within a two hour drive and seven more within seven hours. We feel that the more time we are able to spend with our families makes us better all around physicians and the closeness of the community with minimal commuting distances allows for this increased home time. This is truly a unique practice opportunity with a remarkable life style outside of work.
