Row­land joins North­west Car­di­ol­ogy

Westside Eagle-Observer - - NEWS -

Siloam Springs Regional Hos­pi­tal wel­comed Kris­tine Row­land, AGACNPBC, to North­west Car­di­ol­ogy. Row­land works full-time as a car­diac nurse prac­ti­tioner in Siloam Springs to pro­vide con­ti­nu­ity of care in the car­di­ol­ogy clinic.

Orig­i­nally from Ben­tonville, Row­land re­ceived her master of sci­ence de­gree in nurs­ing at the Univer­sity of Arkansas for Med­i­cal Sciences in Lit­tle Rock for adult-geron­tol­ogy acute care. Her fo­cus was on health and well­ness across the adult life­span which in­cluded health pro­mo­tion, man­age­ment of acute and chronic dis­eases and pro­mot­ing max­i­mal health.

It was ex­po­sure to heart care dur­ing her clin­i­cal education that in­spired her to seek a fo­cused ca­reer in car­di­ol­ogy.

“I had such a great ex­pe­ri­ence dur­ing my car­diac ro­ta­tion that it just re­ally made a strong im­pres­sion on me,” Row­land said. “My board cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in adult-geron­tol­ogy pairs well with the spe­cial­iza­tion of car­diac care, and since car­di­ol­ogy was my fa­vorite practicum, I was so happy to have this op­por­tu­nity.”

Row­land and her hus­band, David, have two daugh­ters, and in her free time they en­joy movies and cook­ing to­gether. She loves to read for plea­sure when she’s not en­grossed in med­i­cal re­search re­lat­ing to pa­tient care.

Row­land will main­tain of­fice hours 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mon­day through Fri­day, of­fer­ing con­sis­tent ac­cess to quick and con­ve­nient heart care for lo­cal res­i­dents.

“I am very ex­cited to work with Dr. Dhanjal, Dr. San­ford and Dr. Pruitt in the Siloam Springs clinic,” Row­land said. “They are such an ex­pe­ri­enced team, and the col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort is a ben­e­fi­cial com­po­nent for me as well.”

If you are con­cerned about your heart health, qual­ity car­dio­vas­cu­lar care is right around the cor­ner. Row­land is cur­rently ac­cept­ing new pa­tients five days a week. She is a mem­ber of the Al­lied Health staff at North­west Health. To sched­ule an ap­point­ment, call 479215-3060.
