Health Partnership Clinic Acquires Shawnee Mission Pediatric Practice

Olathe, KS (June 30, 2016) Health Partnership Clinic (HPC) has acquired the long established Shawnee Mission, Kan. pediatric practice of Annette M. Grundmeier, M.D., effective July 1, 2016. Dr. Grundmeier is retiring on June 30. The practice has an annualized volume of approximately 3,000 pediatric encounters. Terms were not disclosed. However, HPC has retained all the employees.
Hibba Haider, M.D., a pediatrician with HPC, will begin to see patients on Tuesday, July 5. The pediatric and adolescent medicine practice is located in the Shawnee Mission Medical Building at 9119 West 74th St., Ste. 210, Shawnee Mission, Kan. New, expanded office hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, and the phone number, 913-432-3334, will remain the same.
“Dr. Grundmeier has been caring for children for the last 35 years and has left an indelible mark on our community,” says Amy Falk, CEO of HPC. “We are honored and humbled to be able to continue to serve her patients and at the same time offer expanded pediatric care, including onsite lactation services as well as bilingual providers and trained professional interpreters. The location also adds to the existing presence we already have in Johnson County, which is a win win for the entire community. “

Area Native Returns Home to Deliver Quality Health Care to Local Community
Amy Falk, Health Partnership Clinic (HPC), CEO, recently announced the appointment of Jennifer L. Miller, MSN, FNP-BC, as the clinic’s Family Nurse Practitioner. According to Miller, “I couldn’t be happier to be in Ottawa, providing medical care to my new home town community.”
A University of Kansas School of Nursing graduate, Miller’s background includes caring for individuals at every step of their life journey—from tiny babies to older adults. Miller specializes in managing chronic health conditions, women’s health and pediatrics, as well as everyday sniffles and colds.
Miller’s commitment to medicine began when, as the young mother of a military husband, she experienced the frustration of trying to manage her son’s ear infections within the bureaucracy of a military hospital system. According to Miller, “We saw a different doctor with every visit. No one took the time to explain why my son kept getting infections. I finally saw a nurse practitioner. She explained to me why the infections were happening, and most important, why my son was not getting well. From that conversation—and her clinical recommendations—Duncan’s ears began to heal. It was then I realized I wanted to help others as my son was helped. That decision was the first step in becoming the nurse practitioner I am today.” According to Miller, “As I have told many of my coworkers over the years, my greatest wish has always been to win the lottery and then open a free health clinic. This is the next best thing. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this health care team and this community. I am thrilled to help the clinic grow and together help the community become the healthiest it can be!”
