Accepting new patients.
Kelsey Cummins, NP-C, specializes in Palliative Care. She previously worked
at Good Samaritan as a staff nurse on the Hospice Unit and, most
recently, was the nurse manager of Hospice and Palliative Care. Kelsey
received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Vincennes University and
her Masters of Science at the University of Southern Indiana. Having experience
working at the hospital, Kelsey knew she wanted to stay at Good Samaritan
as a nurse practitioner. “I have always loved science and how the
human body works,” said Kelsey. “I enjoy the day-to-day challenges
of providing individualized care. Good Samaritan is home to me and the
staff working here are my family.”
She chose to work in palliative care because of the special connections
she makes with the patient and their families at such a sensitive time
in their lives. Kelsey resides in Sumner, Illinois. When she is not caring
for patients, she enjoys traveling, playing softball, gardening, watching
Chicago Cubs baseball, and spending time with her family and friends.
