Hospitalists specialize in caring for patients while they are hospitalized, providing around-the-clock care and working closely with nursing staff and each patient’s primary physician. Hospitalists work with care coordination teams, which include nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, respiratory and physical therapists, social workers and other specialty care staff.
“I have family in Winona. My grandmother has lived here for 50 years, and I really enjoy the close-knit feel of this community,” said Muyres. “I’m very excited to begin practicing at Winona Health and growing into my position as a physician assistant on the hospitalist team.”
Muyres (pronounced my-russ) earned her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Marietta College in Marietta, Ohio. She graduated from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology. She has a special interest in cardiology.
