As president, Dr. Page will lead more than 1,600 physician members from the St. Louis area in their mission to support and inspire doctors to achieve quality medicine through advocacy, communication and education. The society promotes patient-physician relationships that help patients make informed decisions about their care. Founded in 1836, the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society is one of the oldest local medical societies in the U.S.
Dr. Page joined the society in 1996, was elected to its council in 2016, served as its vice president in 2019 and its president-elect in 2020. She takes over for immediate past president Dr. Jason Skyles.
“It’s an honor to lead this respected organization,” said Dr. Page. “I look forward to advocating for both my fellow physicians and our patients.”
Dr. Page is a pain management, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist with Mercy Clinic Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation - South, as well as the medical director of acute rehabilitation at Mercy Hospital South. She leads a team focused on improving patients’ mobility and quality of life.
In addition to caring for patients, Dr. Page is a key leader in the addition of a new $37 million dollar rehabilitation hospital on the Mercy South campus. Site preparation is now under way for the rehab hospital, with the opening of the new facility planned for early 2022.
