She is looking forward to seeing both new and existing patients.
"When I arrived in Los Alamos a year ago, I was brought together with a group of extraordinary people serving Los Alamos Medical Center as dedicated nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, and locums providers on the OB unit. Strong friendships were formed around a common desire and awareness for the need for consistent quality care for the women in Los Alamos.” Janet said. "There is a strong sense of community that is special here but can also present its own challenges. I am thankful to have the opportunity to serve the women of Los Alamos and surrounding communities in this capacity.”
