Prosser Memorial Health proudly announces Dr. Jared Clifford as the new Chief of Staff for 2021-2023. Prosser Orthopedic Center Podiatric Surgeon, Dr. Jared Clifford, DPM, FACFAS, has been caring for our patients for fourteen years. He is Board-Certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons. 

“Every time I come in through the hospital lobby, I am amazed as I pass the ever-growing number of provider portraits hanging on the wall. I never would have guessed that we would eventually have such a diverse group of providers and specialists when I started here 14 years ago!  

As chief of staff, I will be just one part of this team of physicians, healthcare providers, and Prosser Memorial Health coworkers, all of us striving to provide excellent patient care and a comfortable, personal experience for everyone who walks through the doors of our hospital and clinics. 2020 brought obvious challenges, and I am proud to have been a part of Prosser Memorial Health as we responded with our COVID respiratory clinic and measures in our hospital and clinics to keep our patients and team members safe.  

I am optimistic as we begin 2021. Prosser Memorial Health is blessed to have a cohesive medical staff that works very well together. Our sights are set firmly on becoming a top-100 critical access hospital. It’s going to be a great year.” - Dr. Jared Clifford, DPM, FACFAS, and Chief of Staff at Prosser Memorial Health

Board-Certified Pediatrician Dr. David Carl of Prosser Memorial Health’s Benton City Clinic will serve as the 2021-2023 Vice Chief of Staff.
