Dr. William LaCost graduated from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2002. He did his internship in Portland OR where he met his wife. They moved to Missouri for the first 2 years of his Orthopedic Surgical Residency and then transferred to Pennsylvania for the last two years to get more hands on trauma experience. After residency they returned to Oregon for three and a half years where he was the only surgeon for a community of 65,000 people for the last two years of his employment there.
They learned that the constant rain, lack of summer, or even a decent winter, was draining and after 3 years prompted the hospital to find a replacement and started searching for a four seasons environment that would offer all the beauty of the Oregon Coast with four seasons and local surgeons to share call with. After over 100 e-mails and subsequent phone calls from recruiters, they narrowed their country wide search to West Virginia. After interviewing at multiple locations in WV, Beckley stole their hearts for its amazing hospital (Raleigh General) with advanced technology and amazing support staff, the beauty of the area and many year round outdoor activities. It is their hope that this will be where they retire.
Dr. LaCost’s hobbies include fishing, hiking, gardening, and spending time with his family. He is an avid supporter of the musical and theatrical arts which his children and wife are active in.
His wife is a BSN and specializes in aesthetic medicine including, Botox Cosmetic and Restylane Perlane facial fillers. She currently provides services at your location by appointment. www.spalacost.com
