About Us

About Us:

The La Plata Medical Society has been in existence since the early 1960’s.  Although there has been years of inactivity,  the medical society has re-emerged as an entity to foster discussion and education related to the changing issues in our health care system.  As a member of the Colorado Medical Society,  we offer many benefits related to practice management and provider insurance, as well as support local health initiatives and provide scholarships for students seeking degrees in medical fields that would benefit Southwest Colorado.
