New physician joins Central Valley Medical Center



NEPHI—A new physician has joined the medical team at Central Valley Medical Center.

Mark Saunders, an OB-GYN with 20 years of experience in Utah, recently began work at the Nephi hospital.

“We are pleased that Dr. Mark Saunders has joined our medical staff,” Randy Cluff, assistant administrator at the medical center, said. “He is an excellent OB-GYN who will be able to fulfill the needs of our community.”

Saunders is noted for the individualized care he provides his patients. He says he is committed to treating every patient “as though she is the only one.” Officials at the hospital praised him for the low Caesarean section rate he has maintained while delivering over 4,500 babies in his career.

Saunders said he is particularly excited to be working at a rural hospital.

“I grew up in a small town and hope to be able to get to know my patients on a personal basis over the course of many years,” he said.

Saunders attended the Medical College of Wisconsin before obtaining residency at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb. He was chief resident there during his final year at the school.
