Good Shepherd Health Care System has added a new Obstetrician and Gynecologist (OB/GYN) to its medical staff at Good Shepherd Women’s Center.
Christopher Bowen, DO, joins Drs. Leila Keeler, Allison Khavkin, Keith Lutter and Ken Snider, as well as Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM) Cynthia Rice and Kelli Stephenson.
According to a news release, Bowen recently completed his residency at Henry Ford Wyandotte in Wyandotte, Michigan, after graduating from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. He was born in Kennewick and raised in Yakima, Washington.
“As a child, my father used to take me on motorcycle rides here in Hermiston and my grandfather was born here as well. It’s really great to be back,” he said in the news release.
Bowen said he chose his particular field of medicine because of the broad spectrum of “intimate and unique” patient care it offers, from births to menopause.
He is trained in robotics for laparoscopic surgeries, including both old and new systems for da Vinci Robotics, which provides more precise incisions and shorter recovery times for surgeries, such as hysterectomies.
He is welcoming new patients at Good Shepherd Women’s Center, at 620 NW 11th St., Suite 106 in Hermiston.
Appointments can be scheduled online through Good Shepherd’s MyHealth Patient Portal or by calling 541-667-3801.
