Fitzgibbon Hospital and Marshall Surgical Associates has announced the addition of a new physician specializing in general surgery.
Jason E. Gault, D.O., M.B.A., is a board-certified general surgeon who joins Fitzgibbon after spending the last five years at Hedrick Medical Center in Chillicothe, serving as the chair of the Department of Surgery from January 2011 until September 2015.
"We are very pleased to have Dr. Jason Gault join the staff of Marshall Surgical Associates and Fitzgibbon Hospital. Having Dr. Gault on our staff will allow us to expand our surgical services and surgical coverage. Dr. Gault has proven himself as a capable surgeon with a loyal base of patients who speak highly of his work," said Dr. Darin Haug, President and CEO of Fitzgibbon Hospital.
Dr. Gault earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences and performed his General Surgery Residency at Mount Clemens Regional Medical Center in Mount Clemens, MI. He also received his M.B.A. in Health Care Leadership through Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO.
Dr. Gault was an E4 Medical Specialist in the U.S. Army, having served deployments in Baumholder, Germany and Texas.
"Dr. Gault is a welcome addition to Dr. Brizendine and Dr. Elfrink as we seek to provide 24-hour access to general surgery here at Fitzgibbon. He has a history of not only providing quality care to patients, but he also comes from a rural community and has a track record of connecting with that community, having been involved in youth coaching and scouting programs," said Dr. Haug.
"We welcome Dr. Gault to our community and look forward to having him on our medical staff as we continue to provide complete services to our patients," said Brian Brizendine, M.D., general surgeon for Marshall Surgical Associates.
"I met Dr. Gault a couple years ago when he came to Fitzgibbon to teach me a new way to do a surgical procedure. It will be nice to have him here to share his expertise," said Roy Elfrink, M.D., general surgeon for Elfrink Surgical, LLC.
