Southwest Medical Center Welcomes Laura Kane to SWPP Clinic
08/08/2014

 Southwest Medical Center is proud to announce the addition of nurse practitioner, Laura Kane, to the team of care providers at the Southwest Professional Physicians Internal Medicine clinic.

    Laura grew up in Fritch, Texas and says she knew in high school she wanted to enter the medical field, and that a neighbor helped turn her towards her career as a nurse practitioner.

     “Growing up we had a good family friend who has an RN while I was in school. I watched her and listened to her stories and thought what she did was the coolest thing in the world,” Kane explained. “I wanted to help impact people’s lives in a positive way. After graduating high school, she went on to become a nurse practitioner and that’s when I realized it was a really neat career pathway.”

     It was that career pathway which first led her to Southwest Medical Center in the early 1990’s, where she worked full-time in the medical-surgical unit and obstetrics unit while taking part-time nursing classes in Garden City. Kane went on to complete her bachelor of science in nursing from Fort Hays State University before earning her master of science in nursing from the University of Kansas in 2008.

     Upon receiving her family nurse practitioner certification, Kane returned to caring for patients in Liberal where she worked in clinics with Dr. Ian Yeats, Dr. Brandi Boller, and most recently with pediatrician, Dr. Gurpreet Randhawa. Kane also has experience serving as a nurse practitioner at the Stevens County Medical Clinic in Hugoton and on the Emergency Physician Services team at Via Christi in Wichita.

     Laura explains that as a long-time resident of Liberal, she’s had the chance to become familiar not only with Southwest Medical Center, but the many patients throughout the community that she has served over the years.

     “I have a lot of patients that I’ve treated as young people, and then I’ve treated them as older people, then as moms and dads,” Kane said. “I think it’s fun to get to see families grow like that. For some of the people I’ve cared for, I was there when they were born as I worked labor and delivery here.”

     Kane added that for her and her husband, Scott, Liberal is their hometown of choice.

     “I will always be in service to this community,” she said. “I don’t ever see us leaving – I like Liberal and I think it’s a great place to live.”

     Laura Kane, APRN, is now seeing patients in the Southwest Professional Physicians Internal Medicine clinic at 305 W. 15th St., Suite 102 inside the Medical Office Building at Southwest Medical Center. Kane is accepting new patients of all ages and accepts most insurances, including Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medicare, and Kansas and Oklahoma Medicaid. To schedule an appointment, please call (620) 624-0702.
