Family Nurse Practitioner Meagan Jones joins OMC Urgent Care

WEST PLAINS, Mo – Family Nurse Practitioner Meagan Jones has joined the medical team at Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Urgent Care Clinic, located at 181 N. Kentucky Avenue, Suite 100 in West Plains.

Jones previously worked at OMC gastrointestinal laboratory, where she says she enjoyed the fast-paced and varied environment. She now looks forward to expanding her practice at OMC Urgent Care. Jones holds a Master of Science in Nursing from Walden University and an Associate of Science in Nursing from the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB).

Jones has lived in Willow Springs for the past 25 years. She, her husband and three children, live on their farm with cows, goats, and dogs. They keep busy with their farm animals and love to travel, in particular to Gulf Shores. Jones says that OMC is like a close-knit family and she looks forward to continuing to serve the West Plains community.

“We are very excited to see Ms. Jones transfer her skills to OMC Urgent care,” said Kurt Abbey, Chief Nursing Officer and Chief Operations Officer, OMC. “She’s been a tremendous asset to OMC, and her compassion for the local community makes her an excellent provider.”

Jones joins Dr. Druery Dixon, and Nurse Practitioners Suzanne Huddleston and Hilda Newell. The Urgent Care Clinic provides treatment for minor trauma and illnesses that require same-day attention but are not severe enough for a trip to the emergency room. It is also helpful when your primary care provider’s office is closed or unavailable. Services also available for adults and children include stitches, digital X-ray, limited lab services, Workman’s Comp, and minor wound care. Patients are seen on a walk-in basis with no appointment necessary, seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, contact OMC Urgent Care at 417-257-5972.

Ozarks Medical Center is a system of care encompassing eight primary care and 16 specialty clinics, along with complete rehabilitation, behavioral healthcare, and home care services. While the 114-bed acute care hospital cares for more than 5,400 admissions, the entire medical system has more than 364,000 patient visits annually, in South Central Missouri and Northern Arkansas.
