ELKHART, Kan.—Elizabeth Reusser, physician assistant, joined Morton County Health System.

Reusser grew up in Wellington, Kan. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and Psychology in 2006 from Drury University in Springfield, Mo. In 2010 she completed a Master’s of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Mercy College in Bronx, N.Y.

“I am excited to work at Morton County Health System because it is located in a small community which allows me to become more familiar with my patients,” said Reusser. “I enjoy getting to know each patient and look forward to growing with them.”

Reusser indicated that she always wanted to practice in a rural community. “One of the best features of working in a small community is that people truly appreciate all the work and effort we provide for them. There are a lot of helping hands and people take care of each other,” she stated.

Reusser and Morton County Health System were matched through the Kansas Recruitment and Retention Center (KRRC). The KRRC, which provides placement and retention assistance to rural health organizations, seeks to enhance the quality and quantity of health care professionals in rural Kansas by helping providers like Reusser find a practice in Kansas. The KRRC is a not-for-profit program of Rural Health Education and Services at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
