Mercy Hospital Berryville welcomes two nurse practitioners to new roles with Mercy Clinic Family Medicine in Green Forest and Mercy Sleep Center in Berryville.
Although Amanda Kennedy is new to her role with the Mercy Sleep Center, she is not new to Berryville. Kennedy grew up in the area and is a Green Forest graduate, where her children also attend school. She has spent 16 years in health care serving in multiple roles, including hospital nursing, education, family medicine and now sleep medicine.
When it comes to advice for good health, Kennedy said it is best to focus on the basics.
“Everyday habits make the biggest impact on overall health,” said Kennedy. “Eat nourishing foods, exercise daily and get enough sleep.”
The Mercy Sleep Center is gold standard-accredited by the American Association of Sleep Medicine and offers state-of-the-art technology. Patients can be seen for a variety of sleep disorders – obstructive sleep apnea, excessive daytime sleepiness, insomnia, narcolepsy and restless leg syndrome.
While sleep is an important part of overall health, so is proper primary care. Nurse practitioner Carol Wynn has joined the Mercy Clinic Family Medicine team in Green Forest and brings with her 20 years of experience working in health care.
“I’ve spent most of my career working in the emergency department and in pediatrics,” said Wynn. “I see patients of all ages in this new role, which I enjoy because I love being able to help people.”
Wynn has lived in Berryville, where her children attend school, for 15 years. When they are not working, Wynn and Kennedy can both be found spending time with their families.
