The Chanute Area Chamber of Commerce held an Open House and Business After Hours Wednesday at the Family Medicine Clinic of Neosho Memorial Regional Medical Center.
The event welcomed clinic staff members Dr. Janet Bradshaw and nurse practitioner Gennie Wolken.
Chanute Mayor Sam Budreau, NMRMC Chief Executive Officer Dennis Franks, and Chamber of Commerce President Scott Cunningham each made a few remarks to welcome Bradshaw and Wolken.
“We really hit the jackpot,” Franks said. “They’re both going to be assets.”
“You guys are part of our community,” Cunningham said. “You are the heart of what we do because you take care of us.”
Bradshaw has practiced medicine in central Kansas for several years in Greenwood, Stanton and Harper counties. She is board certified as a family medicine physician and a member of the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians. She also spends time serving as a hospice team physician.
She was educated at Southeastern University of Health Sciences and the University of Kansas in Lawrence. She interned in Garden City, Mich., with residency in diagnostic radiology in Michigan and family medicine in Wichita.
Wolken, Advance Practice Registered Nurse-Certified, has been with NMRMC for more than 13 years, and spent the past five years as clinic manager of the Erie Family Care Clinic.
She received an Associate of Applied Science degree from Neosho County Community College, Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Kansas, and Master of Science in Nursing from Walden University. She spent more than a decade in nursing before studying as an advance practice provider.
