  Emergency Medicine Specialist Dr. Rice Joins SLHS

POTSDAM, NY – Board Certified Emergency Medicine Specialist Kimberly Rice, MD, has joined St. Lawrence Health’s (SLHS) medical staff, and is practicing at Canton-Potsdam, Gouverneur, and Massena hospitals.

Dr. Rice earned her medical degree at Michigan State University Allopathic Medicine, East Lansing, MI; and completed her residency in Emergency Medicine at St. John Hospital and Medical Center, Detroit, MI.

“I chose to work for St. Lawrence Health for a number of reasons,” Dr. Rice said. “Throughout the coronavirus pandemic the System has been committed to the community. It chose to continue fighting for the health and well-being of North Country residents by becoming a symbol of hope for the community.”

Dr. Rice further noted she is from Canada, and the proximity of SLHS to the border allows her to be close to her family.

Dr. Rice provides comprehensive care in all matters requiring immediate attention, including chest pain, stroke, and seizures. Learn more about Dr. Rice.
