Throughout the years of his Moab practice, Marquardt provided low-cost x-rays and medical services to local residents. He also launched a fundraising program for area nonprofits by offering no-scalpel vasectomies at no charge in exchange for a $500 donation to the patient’s favorite charity. For patients who had limited financial means, Marquardt performed the procedure in exchange for a $250 donation. He raised $20,000 for local nonprofits through the program, he said.
Marquardt recently presented the clinic’s final donation to Living Rivers, a Moab-based nonprofit that works to promote river restoration and conservation.
