Nixa, MO – OCH Christian County Clinic continues its efforts to support the healthiest county in Missouri by adding three family nurse practitioners, expanding therapy services, and opening the area’s first autism clinic of its kind. Christian County Clinic has added the following family nurse practitioners:
- Lisa Stark, FNP-C is working with Nixa provider Billy Holt, DO. Lisa received her education from Saint Louis University. She has more than 30 years experience in the nursing field.
- Christine Czachowski FNP-BC, OCN is also working with provider Dr. Holt. She graduated from Aurora University with her BSN and Missouri State University with her MSN-FNP.
- Gail Morris, MSN, FNP-C is working with Randall Halley, DO. She received her education from UMKC. Christian County Clinic’s therapy services have grown to encompass adult therapy and pediatric therapy. January clinic renovations created additional space for therapy sessions and increased privacy for patients.
Renovations also include a new two-way mirror and patient room for the Ozark Area Autism Clinic (OAAC). OAAC was recently established to provide multidisciplinary and differential diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorders as well as treatment for children 18 months through 6 years. It is the only clinic of this kind in Southwest Missouri, using a two-day team model to evaluate, diagnose and develop a treatment plan for children.
With these additions, OCH Christian County Clinic remains the single largest health care provider in the area meeting the health needs of nearly 40% of these residents. In addition to family practice, the clinic offers geriatric care, neurology, ophthalmology, pediatrics, podiatry, psychology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech language pathology and an urgent care.
