Physician will not join St. Luke

St. Luke Hospital and Living Center announced Thursday that Dr. Joyce Ann Roberts, who agreed in February to come to Marion to continue her practice at St. Luke Physician Clinic, has reversed her decision and will remain with Roosevelt General Hospital Clinic in Portales, N.M.

Roberts was reportedly apologetic about the change of heart but said she wouldn’t reconsider.

The hospital has reopened the search for a physician with recruiters. The board of directors will meet at 1 p.m. March 28 to interview a doctor candidate.
