Susan Pavlick, a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner with the OSF HealthCare Medical Group clinic in Wenona, has been selected as the Regional Advanced Practice (AP) Coordinator for the OSF Advanced Practice Provider (APP) Primary Care Fellowship Program.
“In addition to the excellent patient care that Sue provides to our patients in Wenona, she continues to be a great resource of knowledge with over 36 years of experience in health care,” stated Lori Snell, Manager of Physician Offices for the OSF Medical Group offices in Streator and Wenona. “I’m excited that she was chosen for this opportunity, as OSF recognized the depth of knowledge she brings to the table.”
The goals and outcomes of the APP Fellowship Program are to connect new APPs with experienced APPs and physicians within OSF HealthCare who portray the Mission at an extraordinary level. The experienced APPs help provide a supportive, but challenging, environment for the next generation.
As the Regional AP Coordinator, a recently created position, Pavlick will be providing support to APPs who have completed the Fellowship Program. In addition to serving as a Family Nurse Practitioner in Wenona, Pavlick will be responsible for the evaluation, support, and mentoring of new and established APPs working within a number of OSF HealthCare locations.
“The OSF APP Fellowship is an extraordinary program, and I am excited to have the opportunity to support and mentor new APPs within OSF HealthCare,” stated Pavlick. “After moving to Illinois, about 5 years ago, from upstate New York, I was very fortunate to find myself working in Wenona. It’s an extraordinary community, filled with welcoming people who have embraced me as their local health care provider. I plan to continue serving the Wenona community for years to come, while incorporating my new role and responsibilities into my every day work life.”
To accommodate Pavlick’s support of the OSF APP Primary Care Fellowship Program, the hours of the OSF Medical Group clinic in Wenona have been modified; however, access to appointments remains readily available. The office will be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and every other Thursday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Please call (815) 853-4402 to schedule an appointment.
