Dr. Jeffrey Althoff is returning to the St. Joseph Medical Staff after serving four years as an Air Force flight surgeon with the 334th Fighter Squadron. Dr. Althoff joined the St. Joseph Medical Center medical staff in 1992 as an Emergency Physician. After additional training in Hyperbaric Medicine, he began working as a Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine physician in 1993. He served as Medical Director for Hyperbaric Oxygen Kansas City through 2012. During that time, he also served as Medical Staff Vice President and then President at Kindred Hospital Kansas City. Dr. Althoff will also continue to serve as an F-15E flight surgeon as member of the USAF Reserves in North Carolina.

He earned his doctor of medicine degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, Kansas City, Mo., and performed a residency in Emergency Medicine at University of Missouri-Kansas City, Kansas City, Mo. He received a bachelor of arts degree in biology from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School, Kansas City, Mo., and has served in the United States Military for over four years.

Dr. Althoff also sees St. Joseph Medical Center as positioned for growth. “With the hospital’s convenient location, right off 435 Hwy, there is tremendous opportunity to develop the hospital’s wound care and hyperbaric services,” Dr. Althoff says. “The potential is very exciting.” The wound care department has state-of-the-art hyperbaric chambers and a hyperbaric oxygen technician with over 20 years of experience in wound care to reassure and guide them during their medical treatment. Patients will see a physician each visit to answer any questions or concerns.

“Working with St. Joseph Medical Center will allow me to provide high quality wound care in Johnson County, Jackson County and in the surrounding areas,” Dr. Althoff says. “This is an opportunity to care for patients conveniently close to home and to make a real impact on their lives.”
