Kearny County Hospital Welcomes Hannah Schauf as New Certified Physician Assistant
We are excited to announce the arrival of Hannah Schauf, PA-C as a certified Physician Assistant who will be providing care in the Emergency Room and Acute Clinic.
“Hannah is a tremendous addition to our team. Born and raised right here in Kansas, she brings a unique perspective on rural healthcare with lived experience facing the challenges and appreciating the charms of small-town communities,” said Emily Dilley, CEO of Kearny County Hospital. “She will be an excellent resource and a strong advocate for our hospital, health clinic and assisted living/long-term care patients and their families.”
Most recently awarded her Master of Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Schauf also earned her BA in Medical Biochemistry and Microbiology close to home at Kansas State University. Schauf’s medical interests include primary care, OB-GYN, mental health, and emergency medicine. She holds certifications in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advance Life Support (PALS).
Schauf strongly believes in advocating for patients and is committed to decreasing the healthcare barriers that exist for many rural patients. For example, concerned about language barriers in Hispanic and Latino communities, Schauf completed a Spanish healthcare immersion program in Peru after graduation.
Having grown up in Colwich, Kansas, Schauf brings a solid understanding of rural health issues and enjoys the full spectrum of care that rural medicine offers.
“I was raised in rural Kansas, and small-town life comes natural to me,” Schauf said. “So being a part of a health system that models leading-edge strategies for the future of rural health is exactly where I want to be – contributing professionally and personally in every way that I can to Kearny County Hospital and the surrounding communities.”
Aside from her medical career, Hannah enjoys the outdoors, skiing, traveling, cooking, reading, spending time with family and friends, and growing in her faith.
