About Dr. R.D. Marks & Ways You Can Help
The fund was created to honor Dr. R.D. Marks, a long-time physician at Madison Valley Medical Center (MVMC). Dr. Marks received his Board Certification in 1987 from the American Board of Family Medicine. He has been practicing medicine at MVMC since 2010 as a provider in the clinic and ER and served as Chief Medical Officer (2010 - 2019). He is beloved by his patients and colleagues who value the leadership that he brings to MVMC. MVMC celebrated with Dr. Marks in 2015, when he was awarded the honor of Montana Family Physician of the Year by the Montana Academy of Family Physicians.
A generous donor provided the first gift of $50,000 to establish the RD Marks fund. The fund is designed to support the ongoing costs associated with physician recruiting and retention. One of Madison Valley’s primary strategies is to recruit and retain the most qualified Board Certified, Family Medicine Physicians possible. Some examples of uses for the fund include recruiting costs, retention bonuses, continuing medical education, memberships in professional associations, and paid sabbatical leave. The fund aims to help MVMC keep pace with area growth, as well as advancements in medical services and capabilities.
