Family nurse practitioner joins OMC Mountain Grove Medical Complex

Family Nurse Practitioner Paul Burris has joined the medical team at the Mountain Grove Medical Complex, located at 500 East 19 th Street, just south of Highway 60 in Mountain Grove. The clinic is an affiliate of Ozarks Medical Center.

Burris joins clinic physician Michael Ball, DO, and Family Nurse Practitioner Connie Armstrong in providing care to patients of all ages with chronic and acute medical problems. Patients can be seen by appointment or the facility offers a walk-in clinic from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week for the treatment of minor urgent illnesses and injuries such as cuts, sprains, burns, allergies, eye injuries, earaches and colds.

“I entered the field of nursing in hopes of making a difference in somebody’s life,” Burris said. “My goal at the Mountain Grove Medical Complex is to provide the best care possible and create lasting bonds within the community. The new extended hours and walk-in clinic will be a great benefit to the community so that they can receive care close to home seven days a week.”

Burris has been working in nursing for the past 19 years, including 11years at OMC. Most recently, Burris has been a provider at the OMC Mammoth Spring Clinic. Prior to becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner, he was a registered nurse (RN) and surgical coordinator at OMC where he worked to ensure optimal patient care during surgical procedures.

“I have enjoyed working at OMC over the years and I am happy to be a part of the organization’s Mountain Grove location,” he said. “The employees of OMC work very hard in order to ensure the best patient care possible.”

Burris received his Associates of Science in Nursing from Missouri State University – West Plains, his Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Missouri – St. Louis; and his Masters of Science in Nursing Education from Cox College in Springfield. He also received a Post-Master’s Certificate as a Family Nurse Practitioner from St. Joseph’s College of Maine in Standish, Maine. He is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

Burris and his wife, Deenna, reside in Mountain Grove. They have four children, Victoria, Joshua, Gavin and Maddyson.

In his free time, he enjoys running.
