Notice to Patients

Jean Latortue, family medicine physician has been delivering care to the people of Mount Vernon since 2007.  His patients love his bedside manner and the compassionate care that they receive from him   “Patients come to us, and they are pleased, so they send their family members and friends too.”

As CEO of Franklin County Rural Health Clinic, he is making great strides in offering different services to the community “I want Franklin County residents to have the best health care services possible that I can bring them.”
So much responsibility might overwhelm some, but Dr. Latortue rises at 5 each morning with a can-do attitude. “Everyday is a blessing, as you rise up and looking forward in making a difference in people’s lives, and I enjoy every minute of it.”  “Some people have to search for their mission, but I feel like a lucky man to be doing what I wish for- to be in the right place with the right people doing the right job.”
