New Family Medicine Physician Coming to St. Francis Memorial Hospital

Natalie Tymkowych, M.D., will join the Dinklage Medical Clinic in August of 2014.

Dr. Tymkowych, a native of Buffalo Gap, South Dakota will graduate from the Clarkson UNMC Family Medicine residency program this upcoming June. Dr. Tymkowych will work primarily in the Dinklage Medical Clinic but may also satellite, most likely in Hooper at the new Hooper Medical Clinic. The new Hooper Medical Clinic, slated to open hopefully this March will have Dr. Renae Meyer seeing patients on Wednesday mornings and Mrs. Pam List, APRN (Advanced Practice Registered Nurse) on Friday afternoons.

"I look forward to becoming a part of the great medical staff at St. Francis Memorial Hospital and the Dinklage Medical Clinic," said Dr. Tymkowych. "I was in West Point for a month during my rural medicine rotation and really grew to love the clinic, hospital, staff and community. I can't wait to get started and have been looking for a house or acreage already to move into."

Dr. Tymkowych will practice a full range of family medicine including delivering babies, covering the emergency room and seeing patients of all ages in clinic and hospital.

We are very pleased to add Dr. Tymkowych to our practice," said Ron Briggs, President/CEO. "She gets along very well with our staff and is a very talented and compassionate physician with great communication skills. Our doctors and staff got to know her on a rotation here and they are very excited she chose us. West Point and the area has a lot to be proud of with the medical community we have developed here."

The Dinklage Medical Clinic will have a local medical staff of twelve when Dr. Tymkowych joins the clinic.
