Why OGH?

I chose to work at OGH because it is a hometown hospital for me as I was born and raised in Perryton.  The hospital itself supports one another like a family.  The community is tight nit.  Working as physician is I find as a calling and a privilege.  Perryton has been more than welcoming and an amazing place to work
