Nurse Practitioner Amanda Hackbarth symbolizes Calumet Medical Center’s (CMC) commitment to “Personalized Care Close to Home.”
“I was raised in Hilbert and have made my home there today. I love country life and this is my community. I feel blessed that a position was open for me here at CMC,” Hackbarth said.
Hackbarth attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh for her bachelor’s degree in nursing and recently completed graduate studies at Marian University in Fond du Lac. Her face is already familiar to many clinic patients since she had been under the tutelage of Gene Tipler, MD during the fall.
“It was an honor and exceptional learning experience to follow Dr. Tipler and an advantage to become acclimated to the clinic before seeing my own patients,” Hackbarth said.
Hackbarth is a board-certified, adult-gerontology nurse practitioner. She is licensed to treat adolescents and adults and, like a physician, is able to assess, diagnose, manage, and treat chronic and acute disease. As a nurse practitioner she is also able to order and interpret laboratory tests, prescribe medication, and perform minor procedures.
“My special interests include preventative health, dermatology, hospice, and palliative care. I also have an interest in chronic disease such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure (CHF),” she said.
While away from the clinic, Amanda enjoys her hobby farm with husband Kyle and their three young children.
“I am exactly where I want to be,” Hackbarth said.
