EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Nurse practitioner Jamie Taylor, recently joined the Hospital Medicine Department at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire. She will be dedicated full time to taking care of patients admitted to the hospital.
Taylor earned her master’s degree in nursing from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She completed her residency at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Nephrology Associates in Columbia, Tennessee. She is certified in advanced cardiovascular life support and basic life support, and board-certified in adult gerontology.
Taylor’s medical interests are in nephrology and gerontology.
Hospitalists provide continuity of care for patients. Because they are located in the hospital, they are available to follow up on tests, procedures and treatments throughout a patient’s stay, and for discussion with patients and families. As a result, problems can be detected earlier, and complex medical issues can be better managed.
“I enjoy hospital medicine because it allows me the privilege to participate in all aspects of patients’ care during hospitalization, which I find to be rewarding,” says Taylor.
In her spare time, Taylor enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking and jogging.
