A warm Lion's welcome

We are very lucky to get a doctor and orthopedist of Dr. Bean’s caliber to our system,” MRHS CEO Jay Quebedeaux told the group in his introduction. “He has had very successful practices his whole career.”

A native Texan who trained and received his medical education in the University of Texas medical system, Dr Bean is also an aviator. He cited the excellent Mena airport as well as the overall environment of the community as making his decision to relocate an easy one. Dr. Bean’s wife Rose is a retired physical therapist, and looks forward to getting to know people in the community.

Dr. Bean will work within the MRHS hospital system. With his orthopedic board certification and vast surgical experience, Dr. Bean will bring to MRHS a new level of expertise with the ability to do total knee and hip replacements and shoulder reconstructions, as well as general orthopedic care.

The Lions are no stranger to aging knees, hips and shoulders (no doubt due to their many prior athletic pursuits and successes), so it wasn’t surprising that they asked many medical questions. Dr. Bean wowed them with his technical knowledge.

“That’s the voice of experience”, club president Fred Ogden said to the group when Dr. Bean had concluded his remarks.

“I look forward to being here and hope to gain your trust and support in the community,” said Dr. Bean.

Judging by the Lions, there’s going to be plenty for the Dr. Bean to do as he starts his new practice!
