The University of Kansas Health System announces that Mark Van Norden, DO, and his colleagues have moved from their family medicine offices at Great Bend Campus to their new location at the health system’s St. Rose Medical Pavilion.
The new location is on the second floor of St. Rose Medical Pavilion, 3515 Broadway Ave. This move does not affect Dr. Van Norden’s practice at A Healthy Choice Clinic in Larned.
“We are all excited about this move,” Dr. Van Norden said. “St. Rose Medical Pavilion offers additional staff to support our physician assistant, registered nurses and myself while we’re serving patients.
“We had outgrown the space at our previous location,” he added. “There is more room in our new location, which means more comfort and convenience for patients and staff.”
The move results in a number of other benefits to patients, Dr. Van Norden said.
“The offices and team at St. Rose Medical Pavilion will allow patients to enjoy even better continuity of care,” Dr. Van Norden explained. “There will be better coverage because we have new colleagues to help us satisfy our patients’ needs and answer their questions.
“Our medical team cares for infants and those who need geriatric care, and everyone in between,” he added. “Caring for the whole family is what drew me to this type of medical care in the first place.”
Dodie Martin, PA, said the staff has always “taken pride in keeping patients informed in a timely manner about issues such as lab results, appointments and referrals. Our nurses are really accomplished at this, and our new offices will enhance services.”
Kandi Willinger, RN, and Keshia Causey, RN, join Dr. Van Norden and Martin at St. Rose Medical Pavilion.
“This is one great team,” Martin said. “We are pleased about being part of The University of Kansas Health System. As a system, we are unifying what had previously been separate campuses.
“It is exciting to be part of this bigger organization,” she continued. “It is creating something great in the central Kansas medical community for the benefit of patients and their families. This results in an even higher level of care, with easy access to a host of specialists.”
The family medicine office is accepting new patients. “Our patients have always received professional, compassionate care,” Martin said. “We will build on this at our new location.”
Zena Jacobs, clinical director of ambulatory and outpatient operations, said, “It’s great to have more primary care providers in one location. Patients will benefit from this collaboration.”
