Keith Clements, Physician Assistant
In his hometown of Haviland, Kan., Clements received pre-nursing training at Barclay College and then pursued a Bachelor of Arts in Biology at Sterling College in Sterling, Kan. Later he received training as an Emergency Medical Technician before obtaining a Bachelor of Health Sciences degree at Wichita State University. He completed the Masters of Physician Assistants Studies at the University of Nebraska in Omaha, Neb. in 1998.
“As a PA, one of my goals has been to serve a rural community,” he said. “I value the sense of community and knowing who my neighbors are.”
Mary Krannawitter, Director of Human Resources at Sheridan County Health Complex, states that Clements will bring diversity to their provider staff.
“Clements is very experienced primarily in providing health care in rural settings. He shows commitment to community and is known to be a caring and competent clinician,” said Krannawitter.
The Kansas Recruitment Center, which provides placement assistance to rural health organizations, seeks to enhance the quality and quantity of health care professionals in rural Kansas by helping providers like Clements find a practice in Kansas.
