Nurse Practitioner Kathleen Puening joins GMA’s New Castle office, bolstering the Roaring Fork Valley’s largest independent practice
Glenwood Springs, CO, July 6, 2021— Glenwood Medical Associates announces today the expansion of adult and geriatric care providers with the addition of nurse practitioner Kathleen Puening to the New Castle office, located at 820 Castle Valley Blvd. This addition bolsters the services at the Roaring Fork Valley’s largest independent practice.
Puening holds a certification in adult and geriatric primary care, hospice and palliative care. She enjoys learning “the whole story” about her patients to better understand the entire picture of their health, believing that each patient knows him- or herself best.
“There can be many paths to wellness and health. Finding the best fit for all involved is what leads to action,” she remarks. As a nurse practitioner, Puening also enjoys the autonomy of her position, which allows her and her patients to make important health decisions together.
Puening earned a Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Illinois at Chicago and is currently finishing a Post Master’s Doctorate from the University of Colorado with an anticipated graduation in Dec. 2021.
Puening carries board certifications from American Nurses Credentialing Center and Advanced Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse, and affiliations with the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Care Nursing Association and American Nurses Association.
In her free time, she enjoys knitting, traveling, hiking and skiing.
Fulfilling its 60-plus-year commitment to the health of the Roaring Fork Valley, GMA also provides other ancillary services including pharmacy, bone densitometry, laboratory, drug screening, radiology and ultrasound.
Puening is now accepting new patients. Please call or text GMA at 970-945-8503 to make an appointment.
