For MEDICAL CARE, Myrah Keating Clinic is open in a beautiful modular building at their old Susannaberg location. The phone number has changed. Remove the old 340-693-8900 from your phone and replace with 340-776-8311 which reached Schneider Hospital. Dial “0” immediately (don’t listen to messaging) and ask the receptionist for Myrah Keating Clinic and you will get right through. This new improved phone system puts the Myrah Keating staff in direct contact with hospital departments and integrates their staff better, so let’s get it into all our phone lists. 340-776-8311 reaches both Myrah Keating and Schneider Hospital. Then Dial “0” and ask for Myrah Keating Clinic. Myrah Keating also currently has a cell phone, if you need a different number: 340-244-5217, but this may be temporary.
