The new evening hours for OB-GYN appointments at St. Rose Health Center will be one of many topics at the facility’s Women’s Expo booth. The expo is set for 3:30-7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26 at the Great Bend Events Center, 3111 10th.
St. Rose is teaming up with Hays Medical Center to share information about the new OB-GYN hours and other women’s health services. HaysMed is the sole owner of St. Rose; both facilities are part of The University of Kansas Health System.
The St. Rose OB-GYN team will be on hand at the expo to remind women about the noon to 7 p.m. Thursday hours, 4D ultrasounds and other services offered in Great Bend.
“We are so excited to offer Thursday appointments during the traditional lunch hour, as well as between 4 and 7 p.m.,” St. Rose Executive Director Zena Jacobs said. “Our goal is to provide convenient times for family involvement in such services as our Hello Baby 4D ultrasounds and post-operative exams.”
The team includes: Haley Gleason, advanced practice registered nurse; Lacey Kern, registered diagnostic medical sonographer; and Melanie Krier, BSN, RN, who is certified in advanced fetal heart monitoring.
All three work in conjunction with OB-GYNs at HaysMed. These physicians are Joel Fort, M.D.; Lee Hodny, M.D.; and Timothy Hoskins, M.D. Jenna Sloan, M.D., recently joined the OB-GYN practice and will see patients at the HaysMed Specialty Clinic at St. Rose.
