Health System Emergency Department Care Team Is Growing

The University of Kansas Health System Great Bend Campus welcomes Kristen Yarmer, APRN, a certified family nurse practitioner, to the Emergency Department care team.

"I love the fast pace of the Emergency Department and never knowing what will come in next,” Yarmer says. “The majority of my nursing experience was in the Emergency Department and helped me build a strong foundation to expand on as I provide care to our patients."

Yarmer earned her associate degree in nursing at Barton Community College and her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Fort Hays State University. She earned her Master of Science in Nursing – Family Nurse Practitioner at Post University.

Yarmer grew up in Great Bend and is raising her family here. She enjoys working in the community she lives in and providing care to people she knows.

In addition to the emergency care team, orthopedics and general surgery providers are on call to care for patients in the Emergency Department. The health system remains committed to providing excellent care as a designated Level IV Trauma Center for the region.
