  • Lake Regional Health System is pleased to announce two new providers, Renée Riedel, FNP-C, and Kathy Walters, FNP-B.C., have joined clinic locations this month.
     Riedel joined Lake Regional Clinic – Lake Ozark on July 14. She works closely with Drs. Grant Barnum, William Fish and Virginia Nagy.
    A Lake Regional employee since 2008, Riedel has worked in the Home Health and Education departments. Previously, she worked as an R.N. case manager for hospice agencies in the Kansas City area and as a case manager for specialized rehabilitation in St. Charles, Mo.
    “While providing hospice and palliative care services, I saw firsthand the difference you can make by spending time educating patients and their families,” said Riedel. “In my new role, I’m looking forward to caring for all ages across their lifespan, especially children.”
     Riedel, who has 22 years of health care experience, earned a bachelor’s degree of science in nursing and a master’s degree of science in nursing from Graceland College in Lamoni, Iowa.
     The community is invited to meet Riedel during an open house 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 13, at Lake Regional Clinic – Lake Ozark, located at 1870 Bagnell Dam Blvd. Lunch will be provided, and free blood pressure checks will be available upon request.
    Lake Regional Urology welcomed Kathy Walters, FNP-B.C., on July 1. She works closely with Urologist Eugene Dixon, M.D., to offer screenings, and diagnosis and treatment of urinary conditions.
    Walters is a board-certified family nurse practitioner who has more than 23 years of health care experience, including 15 years as a nurse practitioner. Previously, she collaborated with family medicine physicians at Central Ozarks Medical Center in Osage Beach and Richland since 2002 to provide primary care and women’s health.
     She earned an associate’s degree in nursing from Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing in Camden, New Jersey, a bachelor’s degree of science in nursing from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, and a master’s degree of science in nursing from Central Florida in Orlando.
     “Kathy is a great addition to our team,” said Kim Bruno, Lake Regional Urology clinic manager. “With her on board, we are better able to serve the growing needs of our patients and community.”
