New board-certified women’s health nurse practitioner joins Delta Health Family Medicine Clinic

Jul 30, 2021News

Delta, CO (July 30, 2021) – Kimberly Walker, board-certified women’s health nurse practitioner, joins Delta Health to provide comprehensive women’s health services and infertility evaluations and treatments.

Patients do not need to have Walker as their primary care provider to utilize her services.

“We are thrilled to have Kimberly as part of our care team at Delta Health Family Medicine,” said Vickie Schauster, Executive Director of Clinic Operations. “Her background, education and experience will provide comprehensive primary care services to women of all ages in Delta County.”

After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS), Walker went to Dallas and worked for five years in the labor and delivery unit at Parkland Hospital where they delivered 13,000 to 15,000 babies each year.

“I’ve always loved women’s health and taking care of women through all stages of life and helping to give them a quality of life,” said Walker. “I am looking forward to working at Delta Health and providing as much comprehensive women’s healthcare as I can. “

Walker received her Master’s from Texas Women’s University in Dallas and specialized in Women’s Health. After that, she moved back to Colorado and started working in infertility at a private practice in Denver for five and a half years.

In May 2021 Walker also completed her Doctorate of Nursing Practice from UCCS to grow her knowledge and to become a leader in the medical field as a Nurse Practitioner.

“I take pride in spending time with my patients,” said Walker. “I listen to my patients’ symptoms, their desires and what they want out of daily life. Whether they need to improve quality of life, quality of relationships or just want to overall feel better – I try to provide individualized care.”

Walker chose rural healthcare because she wanted to serve the women in the community that she lives in. She wanted to be part of a community where women would see her on the street and in the office and would know that she has their best interest at heart.

At the start of 2021 Walker, her husband and their two-year-old son moved to the Western Slope of Colorado. They enjoy the outdoors, paddle boarding, hiking, camping and doing CrossFit.

“My family and I are thrilled to be here,” said Walker. “I am [excited] to working as a team with the other providers at Delta Health to provide comprehensive care for women. [Whether] it’s helping women in their menopausal years or women looking to start their families – I am looking forward to being part of this community.”

Walker is currently seeing patients at the Delta Health Women’s Center Clinic until August 30, 2021, when the clinic closes.

Starting in September 2021 Walker will be seeing patients at the Delta Health Family Medicine Clinic. To make an appointment with Walker, call the Delta Health Family Medicine clinic at 970.874.5777 or visit deltahealthco.org/delta-family-medicine/.
