Vail clinic remains an option

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:

An article published recently in The Aspen Times may have mislead many readers about the future status of the Steadman-Hawkins Clinic in Vail, where many Roaring Fork Valley residents have gone for orthopedic care.

Earlier this week, I happened to be in Dr. Steadman’s office when I read The Aspen Times article. Dr. Steadman assured me that he is not retiring, or reducing his workload, or moving his practice.

Dr. Steadman’s longtime partner in their internationally renowned practice, Dr. Richard Hawkins, is moving to South Carolina, where he will be practicing in conjunction with Steadman-Hawkins Clinic. Another acclaimed shoulder specialist will be joining the Steadman-Hawkins Clinic in Vail, succeeding Dr. Hawkins there.

The option of orthopedic care at the Steadman-Hawkins Clinic with Dr. Steadman and the clinic’s other outstanding surgeons will be a medical option for Aspenites for many years to come.
