Ambulatory LPNs

Our ambulatory care LPNs are caring and compassionate individuals who work in our specialty and outpatient clinics throughout the Kansas City area. They also work in our Medical Pavilion on our main campus. LPNs at our hospital provide the highest quality of care and service.

LPNs work side-by-side with physicians to ensure the best patient care in our outpatient clinics. They provide a wide range of duties from data entry to performing injections, spirometry and EKGs. They room each patient and prepare patient rooms between exams. LPNs also promptly respond to triage calls and messages pertaining to patient care based on medical necessity. They address concerns for our walk-in patients as well.

LPNs make our clinics great. They support and advocate for our patients. – Katie Knisely, LPN
