Dr. Barry Portner has been informed that the dismissal of hospital privileges by the Prowers Medical Center Board of Directors has been overturned by a conditional Pueblo Court ruling. Portner said 10th Judicial Court Judge Scott Epstein ordered a stay on the hospital board’s vote taken during their June 24 meeting.

Portner added that the judge has ordered a full investigation into the actions by the PMC Board of Directors and a complete review of the matter is being scheduled. Dr. Portner, a local obstetrician, is employed at High Plains Community Health Center and is currently free to resume his medical privileges at Prowers Medical Center.
