As the CEO of Ringgold County Hospital, Gordon Winkler has seen some big changes in health care over the past 28 years. Perhaps one of the more impactful changes is the shift from treating patients only when they’re sick, to a focus on lifelong health and wellness. That’s where the Mount Ayr Medical Clinic is excelling. Since 1998, it’s been a family practice within the hospital, with a reputation for quality care that is so good, patients travel from outside Ringgold County just to be seen here.
“We have a tremendous staff at the clinic,” said Gordon. “We’ve always had excellent physicians and nurses. With the advent of physician assistants and nurse practitioners, we’ve been able to attract and keep very talented people in our small community. And we’re so excited about the newest additions; Doctors Brad and Nicole Wilson are joining our team.
