Southwest Medical Center is proud to announce the addition of
nurse practitioner, Laura Kane, to the team of care providers at the 15th Street Family
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
“Growing up we had a good family friend who was 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. I wanted to be like her and help impact people’s lives in a positive way,” Kane explained.
It was that career pathway which first led her to Southwest Medical Center in the early 1990s, 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, Dr. Gurpreet Randhawa and most recently Dr.
Juvenal Jabel. 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.
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 at the 15th Street Family Care Center located at 555 W. 15th Street in
Liberal, Kansas. 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
