Ellinwood Hospital Clinic accepts new patients, young and old

Did you know? Ellinwood District Hospital operates a rural health clinic: Ellinwood Hospital Clinic.

The providers at Ellinwood Hospital Clinic, Charlie Joslin, MD; Chris Brown, MD; and Debbie Wolfe, APRN, accept patients from newborns to seniors and are always accepting new patients.

“As a family care practice, we see all ages,” reports Diane McReynolds, Clinic Manager. “It’s great for a family to be seen all by one provider – the provider can see the whole picture and care becomes very personalized.” A family care provider can provide primary care for anyone for everything from acute illnesses to injuries to routine preventative medicine, such as well-child checks and annual exams.

“Our providers truly are a family and care deeply for their patients; they get to watch their patients grow up,” says Kile Magner, CEO of Ellinwood District Hospital and Clinic.

The clinic operates as a rural health clinic, which means that it is specially regulated and designated to improve access to primary care in underserved rural areas. Rural health clinics are required to use a team approach of physicians and midlevel practitioners such as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified nurse midwives to provide services. The clinic must be staffed at least 50% of the time with a midlevel practitioner. Rural health clinics are required to provide outpatient primary care services and basic laboratory services.

“We as a community are privileged to have such highly dedicated, skilled doctors and midlevels practicing here at home. Access to quality care is easier here than in other areas,” reports Magner.
