Nurse Practitioner Joins Hospitalist Program at Ministry Saint Clare’s
Ministry Health Care and Ministry Medical Group are pleased to welcome Family Nurse Practitioner Kristine Doemel who recently joined the Hospitalist Department at Ministry Saint Clare’s Hospital in Weston.
Hospitalists are a team of specially trained physicians and advanced practice clinicians who specialize in caring for patients who have been hospitalized. In many areas of the country, personal physicians are referring their patients to a Hospitalist when their patients are sick enough that they can no longer be cared for in the outpatient setting.
A board-certified family nurse practitioner, Doemel provides can provide high-quality healthcare services similar to those of a physician. She is a registered nurse with advanced education and clinical training. Along with clinical services, Doemel focuses on health promotion, disease prevention, health education and counseling – guiding patients to make smarter health and lifestyle choices. Doemel can order, perform and interpret diagnostic tests such as lab work and X-rays. She can diagnose and treat acute and chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, infections, and injuries. She can prescribe medications and other treatments.
Doemel received her master’s degree in family practice nursing from Concordia University, Mequon. Her undergraduate degree is from UW-Green Bay. She also holds an associate degree in nursing from North Central Technical College. She is certified in advanced cardiac life support, basic life support for healthcare providers, pediatric advanced life support, trauma nursing core course and neonatal resuscitation.
“I enjoy watching any kind of sports, especially if my son is playing,” said Doemel. “One thing I have observed, teams that have a plan and a vision for winning tend to do better. I use that strategy with my patients. We work closely to visualize the goal of better health, then develop a strategy to get there. It’s a win-win approach to wellness.”
In her spare time, Doemel enjoys outdoor activities including boating, downhill skiing and riding motorcycles with her husband.
