“William Bee Ririe Hospital and Rural Health Clinic is pleased to announce the newest addition to our medical staff, Dr. Lawrence Gardner, M.D., General Surgeon.  Dr. Gardner comes to us from Henderson, NV, where he has spent the last 8 years focusing nearly exclusively on breast cancer and other breast issues. For both his undergraduate and Doctor of Medicine he attended the University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada.  In 1972 he completed his internship and residency in General Surgery at Foothills Hospital and Birmingham Accident Hospital. He has 40 years of experience in General Surgery and has worked in Canada, the UK, and the US. His extensive knowledge in his field led him to opening the only certified breast center in Southern Nevada at Sunrise Hospital, where he has been the Medical Director for many years.  He has held multiple leadership positions during his medical career and is very focused on patient-centered care.  He has a high level of knowledge in the field of General Surgery and women’s health, which we feel will add to the level of care we are able to provide to the community.  We are truly looking forward to him being a part of our medical team.”
