The new member of the St. Rose Family Medicine team brings with her to the position more than seven years of experience in a variety of health-care settings.
Haley Gleason, advanced practice registered nurse, recently arrived at St. Rose where she sees patients of all ages; she is accepting new patients.
“I care for and treat many acute conditions such as the common cold, sore throat and the flu,” Gleason said. “But I also see patients who need chronic-disease management. This includes those who have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary artery disease and diabetes.”
In addition, Gleason provides women’s health services such as pap tests and breast exams. She also treats minor injuries, some dermatology patients and those who need wound care.
Gleason noted she has been impressed with the services, personnel and the facility itself at St. Rose.
“This building is beautiful,” she commented. “It is awesome that all the different resources and services are right here under one roof.”
In addition to St. Rose Family Medicine, these services include MRIs and CAT scans in the Imaging Department, Convenient Care Walk-in Clinic, Great Bend Internists, Physical Therapy, Golden Belt Home Health & Hospice and the St. Rose/HaysMed Specialty Clinic.
“And to top it off,” Gleason said, “the people here have been extremely friendly. I couldn’t have asked for a more welcoming atmosphere – from the front desk to housekeeping to the nurses and everyone else.”
Gleason began her career at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita where she cared for patients in the hospitalist unit and neonatal intensive care. She also was a traveling nurse serving in Knoxville, Tenn., Los Angeles and Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.
Most recently, Gleason worked in the Orthopedic Institute at Hays Medical Center.
Gleason earned her bachelor’s of science degree in nursing at Fort Hays State University in 2009, and her master’s of science in nursing at the University of Cincinnati this year.
She is board certified through the American Nurses Credentialing Center and licensed by the Kansas State Board of Nursing.
Gleason and her husband, Sean, live in Great Bend. Her parents are Steve and Deb Webster; Stephanie is her sister.
