Quality, safe and nurturing care…from newborn to adults

As a family nurse practitioner, Patricia “Trish” Fowler offers quality, safe and nurturing care to the entire family. As a mother of five-year-old twins along with a strong medical background, she welcomes newborns, toddlers, adolescents and adults of all ages. Trish is the sole provider at the Paola clinic, which serves Miami County and beyond. She offers same day appointments and is accepting new patients.

Why choose a nurse practitioner?

Nurse practitioners, like Trish, are highly educated and begin their academic pursuits by first earning a bachelor’s degree in nursing. To become a nurse practitioner, she attended a nationally accredited nurse practitioner graduate program. Trish worked as a nurse for nine years and eventually obtained a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) which allowed her to become board certified in family practice. It takes approximately eight years of post-secondary education to obtain a DNP. This extensive medical background ensures she delivers the highest quality care possible. To ensure the best care for her patients, Trish works collaboratively with the clinic’s pediatricians and family practice doctors.

Trish’s goal is to help create a community-focused clinic, where she can provide quality, affordable and accessible health care to all. Understanding her patients’ needs and connecting them with other Health Partnership services when needed complements her whole person care approach.

About Patricia Fowler, DNP, APRN, FNP-C

Meet Patricia FowlerInspired by her parents’ separate years-ago healthcare experiences, Patricia “Trish” Fowler, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, has joined Health Partnership Clinic as a family nurse practitioner serving patients of all ages with both chronic and acute conditions in our Paola clinic.

After specializing in oncology for years in larger care environments, Trish is excited to work in her hometown community, where she can literally help neighbors, the families she sees at her kids’ school and other familiar faces. Given the challenges of rural health care—primarily the provider access limitations—Trish especially looks forward to helping the older patient population, which can feel intimidated by the demands of getting help at suburban and metropolitan facilities.

Trish’s interest in becoming a healthcare professional began as a teenager, having observed the care her father received at the University of Kansas Medical Center following a motorcycle accident. “I was drawn to nursing by the combination of caring, daily tasks and intellectual challenge,” Trish says. She received a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) from Fort Hays State University, Hays, Kan. and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Emporia State University, Emporia, Kan.

Having worked in a specialized area like oncology, Trish has a renewed appreciation for primary care and the opportunity to continue practicing evidence-based health care amid the industry’s constant change. Her appreciation extends to the mission and culture of HPC, where she recalls her mother receiving care when health insurance availability was spotty. “My goal is to help create a community-focused clinic, where we can serve the community to the best of our ability, understand their needs, and how to best meet them through other HPC programs,” she adds.

Originally from Spring Hill, Kan., Trish resides in Hillsdale with her husband and five-year-old twin girls. The family enjoys boating in the summer, football in the fall and country music events whenever possible.
