The new clinic opened on January 2, 2024, on the Bonner General Health campus at 423 N Third Avenue, Suite 110.
Dr. Charles Crane, Board Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, diagnoses and treats a broad range of symptoms and diseases, providing guidance, counseling, and preventive interventions for improved overall health and life-long comprehensive care and palliative care. He will continue to serve as a Hospitalist at Bonner General Health and perform a vast array of outpatient procedures, including endoscopic procedures.
“We are excited to have the expertise and specialty skills of Dr. Crane and his internal medicine team join BGH. Dr. Crane is one of the region’s most talented physicians, and his unique skill set, both as a hospitalist and in the outpatient clinic setting, is unmatched. He is such an asset to Sandpoint and immensely respected within the medical community.” – Dr. Stacey Good, Chief Medical Officer, Bonner General Health.
Paige T. Russell, Board-Certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, received her Doctorate of Nursing Practice through Idaho State University.
