WEST PLAINS, MO-- Trisha Vigna, MSN, APRN, FNP, recently joined Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Gainesville Family Medicine. OMC’s family medicine clinics are committed to improving the quality of life for all the people in our region through accessible healthcare services.

Vigna is excited to make an impact in the Gainesville community and will be present at OMC Gainesville’s free BBQ tailgate party on Nov. 30 before the Bulldogs high school basketball game. It will take place at 37 Medical Drive in Gainesville from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The first 100 people to arrive will receive a Gainesville Bulldog rally towel.

Vigna is a native of Mountain Home, Ark. where she graduated high school and continued her studies at Arkansas State University where she completed her prerequisites. Vigna went on to North Arkansas College where she earned her Associate of Science in Nursing.

She spent four years at Arkansas Children’s Hospital where she provided care and support to pediatric patients from birth to age 21. She also spent time as a school nurse at Mountain Home Junior High and High School and was a home health nurse at North Arkansas Home Care.

While pursuing her Masters, Vigna was a Registered Nurse at Baxter Regional Medical Center Emergency Room for nine years, where she cared to patients of all ages. She became a Nurse Practitioner at Fairlamb Senior Health Clinic in 2016 where she specialized in geriatric care.

Her move to OMC Gainesville Family Medicine gives her the opportunity to focus more on pediatrics while still providing services for women’s health and geriatrics.

“We are very excited to see Mrs. Vigna join OMC Gainesville Family Medicine said OMC Vice President of Medical Group Pam Ream. “Mrs. Vigna will be a tremendous asset to OMC and the Gainesville community.”

Vigna and her husband, Franco, were recently married in September. They have five children: Brock, 18; Kylie, 12; Kaden, 11; Drew, 10; and a foster daughter that is 8-months-old. They are active members at East Side Baptist Church where they are involved in children’s ministry. They love to visit the lake, travel as a family and enjoy watching their children play sports and dance.
