Charlotte Clark, MD, joined the Winona Health medical staff and serves as a Hospice physician.
“I chose Winona Health for this unique opportunity to focus on the important work of hospice.” said Dr. Clark. “It’s rewarding to be able to get to know people in their own environment and to learn what really matters to them. It’s a wonderful opportunity to make a difference in their lives and the lives of those who love them.”
Dr. Clark noted that many people think that hospice care is only for people when they are in their last few DAYS of life. “In reality,” said Dr. Clark. “We can do the most good when we have many MONTHS to work with patients and their families, supporting, teaching about what to expect and how to care for a person who wants to stay at home.”
Hospice provides an array of services to increase comfort such as home nurse visits, music therapy, physical therapy, nondenominational chaplain visits, assistance from social workers, home health aides, and volunteer visitors, all covered under Medicare if a person is eligible.
Prior to joining Winona Health, Dr. Clark served as an independent contractor for a life insurance paramedic services company. Her medical experience also include caring for patients as a Family Practice physician and serving as the medical director of a nursing home. She received her medical degree from the University of Wisconsin- Madison and completed her residency at University of Missouri Hospital and Clinics in Columbia, Missouri.
