Expanded Team, More Space at Mercy’s St. Robert Clinic

July 22, 2016

Mercy Clinic Family Medicine – St. Robert is expanding this summer, and in more ways than one. Renovations to the two-story facility, as well as the addition of more medical providers, are already getting rave reviews.

“Patients think it is fantastic, and we’re so happy to hear that,” said Lori Laughlin, practice manager of the clinic at 608 Old Route 66. “We needed more space for our physicians and staff on our main level, and luckily there was room to grow in this building.”

A spring redesign of the upstairs specialty suite – which includes physical therapy and cardiac rehabilitation – now features a newly-designed nurse’s station, allowing the family clinic downstairs to embark on a much-needed expansion.

“We’ve added five new patient care rooms and doubled our waiting area, adding more modern furniture across the board,” Laughlin said. “Our reception area was also expanded and is much easier for patients to access. The new layout is also allowing us to bring in new technology.”

In addition to new space, there are new faces joining the clinic’s existing five physicians – Drs. Charles Harriman, Saima Jabeen, Debra McCaul, Linda Morgan and Jeffrey Semeyn – as well as nurse practitioner Jeannie Carlton and physician assistant Jon Moore:

  • Katrina Wiegert, certified nurse practitioner, joined Mercy in June. She received her bachelor’s in nursing from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She received her master’s in nursing, Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner, from the Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College in St. Louis, Missouri. She belongs to the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
  • Ryan Rogers, physician assistant, assumed a full-time role at the clinic in May. The National Guardsman received his undergraduate and graduate degrees at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri. He had been working in orthopedics at General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital, and part time at the Mercy clinic in St. Robert. He is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, as well as the American Association of Surgical Physician Assistants.

“It’s a great time to be working at the St. Robert clinic,” Rogers said. “We have a fully functional radiology department, a lab and a helicopter pad right outside our door. Couple that with our expanded team and space, it’s a win-win for our patients and the community.”

Mercy Clinic Family Medicine – St. Robert, located at 608 Old Route 66, provides a variety of services for the entire family, including physical exams and sports physicals, treatment for minor injuries to chronic illness, immunizations and more.
