Mesa View Regional Hospital is pleased to welcome Catherine King, APRN, CDE, as an independent member of the medical staff. King is a Nurse Practitioner specializing in chronic disease management and is also the only Certified Diabetes Educator on staff at Mesa View Medical Group in Mesquite, where she is now seeing patients.
She and her family recently moved to Mesquite from Las Vegas, where she had worked for the past four years. “We are excited about living in Mesquite and enjoying the small town environment,” said King. “I look forward to providing medical care to patients in Mesquite and the surrounding area for a long time,” she continued. Prior to living in Nevada, she worked in the state of Ohio as a Nurse Practitioner for more than 10 years.
King earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio in 1999. She went on to obtain her Masters in Nursing, receiving her certification as a Nurse Practitioner in 2002 from Ohio’s Otterbein University. After having an opportunity to manage diabetic patients with other chronic conditions she was inspired to become a Certified Diabetes Educator, which she achieved in 2006. “This has been invaluable and has enhanced my ability to educate and treat patients with diabetes, pre-diabetes and to teach diabetes prevention,” she said.
King is also experienced with other chronic conditions including; congestive heart failure, lipid disorders and COPD. She believes that to treat a condition or offer advice, a relationship must first be established and that listening is vital for her to understand the patient’s condition. She is committed to working with each patient in managing their own health and formulates treatment plans that work best for the individual.
“Catherine King is an accomplished and experienced Nurse Practitioner,” said Patty Holden, CEO for Mesa View Regional Hospital. “We are so pleased to welcome her to Mesquite as an essential addition to our medical staff and to the community,” Holden said.
When she is not busy seeing patients or spending time with her family, King enjoys being outdoors, hiking and cooking.
King is now seeing new patients and can be reached at Mesa View Medical Group, 702-346-0800, 1301 Bertha Howe Avenue Suite #1, in Mesquite or visit: www.Mesaviewmedical.com.
