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.

Dedicated Healthcare Providers Lead to County’s Healthy Living Ranking

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  April 1, 2011

Nixa, MO – As Christian County residents benefit from their recent top ranking as the healthiest county in Missouri, OCH Christian County Clinic validates a significant mark in the community for meeting the health needs of nearly 40% of these residents.

In fact, many of the clinic’s physicians live alongside the residents, sending their children to Christian County schools and working daily to promote healthy living outside of their medical practice.

Nixa resident and OCH physician Krista Boyd, D.O. said, “This clinic is more than just another doctor’s office.  We are a family that values the relationships we have with our patients.  I am thankful to be part of a health care system that cares about the patient first.”

With thirteen physicians, four nurse practitioners and three therapists, the OCH Christian County Clinic is the single largest healthcare practice in Christian County.  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.

“I believe that Ozarks Community Hospital’s Christian County Clinic has played a significant role in achieving this honor for Christian County as the healthiest county in Missouri,” said Eric Rogers, Clinic Manager.

Considering family practice alone, the OCH Clinic represents almost 40% of the family practice healthcare providers in the county. 

To further support Christian County’s healthy living, OCH is launching a chronic disease management program called HealthyU through the Christian County Clinic in Nixa.  Classes in this HealthyU program begin in May and will cover topics such as Diabetes, Smoking Cessation, Hypertension, Hyperlipidemia, Childhood Obesity and Asthma.
