Keeping Orthopedic Care Local


Our Orthopedic Center of Excellence is recognized by Blue Cross as a “Blue Distinction Center for Hip and Knee Replacements.” It is extraordinary to have Dr. Erik McGoldrick on the team as an expert in shoulder surgery.

Our already stellar orthopedic program will be enhanced by transforming an area of the hospital into a unit dedicated to ortho/spine treatment.

Furthering the education and training of our caregivers, this transformation will help our facility match those beyond our region, giving patients a boutique experience, with specialized nursing care, encouraging them to stay here in Humboldt for these procedures, and Keep Care Local.

Close-to-Home Care


Decades of hard work and continuous shoulder injuries left retired McKinleyville cowboy Dennis Mayo barely able to lift his left arm. After 20 years, Dennis had resigned himself to his shoulder being practically useless.

Then he met St. Joseph orthopedic surgeon and shoulder specialist, Dr. Erik McGoldrick. Instead of leaving the area for care, Dennis chose to have his procedure here, close to home.

Dennis describes the outcome of his surgery as “spectacular,” He is back in the saddle again, happy to demonstrate his renewed ability, pain-free.
