TUCUMCARI, N.M. – Nurse practitioner Katherine Henry recently joined the care team at the Presbyterian Logan Medical Clinic in Logan.
"We are excited to welcome Katherine to our community," said Vickie Gutierrez, chief nurse executive at Dr. Dan C. Trigg Memorial Hospital. "Katherine grew up in rural Texas and we believe she has a great feel for our patients and their needs. She is already a great resource for the Logan community, as she can provide care for patients of all age ranges and enjoys working with pediatric patients."
With the addition of Henry, nurse practitioner La Juana Dell Willis, who has provided care at the Logan clinic since 2013, will transition to working on an as-needed basis.
Henry has worked as a family nurse practitioner for 17 years, with experience in pediatrics, primary care and geriatrics, including caring for adults with multiple chronic health issues. She is also experienced in prenatal care, gynecology and urgent care. Most recently, she worked at the Hereford Health Clinic and the City of Amarillo Health Clinic, both in Texas, and held several roles at clinics in the Northwest Texas Healthcare System.
"Primary care involves care of all age groups and this is my passion," Henry says, adding that she enjoys the slower pace of life in a rural area.
Henry received her bachelor's degree in nursing from The University of Texas. She received her master's from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, Texas.
The clinic, which is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., is located at 600 Gallegos Street in Logan. Appointments are available by calling 575-487-9000.
