KRMC welcomes Kathleen Walton, NP
Kingman, Arizona, November 4, 2019 – Kingman Regional Medical Center is pleased to welcome Kathleen Walton, NP to the Golden Valley Medical Center. As a family nurse practitioner, Kathleen Walton provides care for people of all ages, from children to the elderly. Walton helps patients manage acute illness as well as chronic conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes. Walton has ample experience in patient care – she worked as a nurse for 20 years before earning her Master of Science degree in Nursing from South University in Savannah, Georgia. She chose to further her education and transition into a nurse practitioner role because she noticed a need in the community for providers.
Of the patients she works with, Walton says, “I’m honored to be part of their health journey.” She focuses largely on preventative medicine. Walton believes healthcare works best when the patient and provider act as a team to improve the patient’s health and wellbeing.
