Mercy Clinic Celebrates National Women Physicians Day

February 3, 2016

Drs. Katrina Burke and Amy Sachau

Drs. Amy Sachau and Katrina Burke met during medical residency and discovered a shared passion for practicing medicine in rural areas, so Sachau (who was already at Mercy Clinic – Fort Scott) reached out to Burke as she was looking for a practice that matched her health care philosophy.

Today, they work side-by-side as Family Medicine physicians with an emphasis on Obstetrics.

Mercy is proud to salute all of our female doctors on National Women Physicians Day. Organized by Physicans Working Together of Columbus, Georgia, NWPD is the first national recognition of women physicians and is celebrated on February 3, the birthday of Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to graduate from medical school in the United States.
