Nurse Practitioner Joins Community Health Network Medical Center in Ripon
Sandie Quade has always enjoyed helping others feel their best. For the past 25 years, she has worked in Ripon in various health care settings from acute care to her new role as an advance practice nurse practitioner for Community Health Network’s medical center in Ripon. Along the way, she has gained extensive knowledge and experience to help her best serve patients.
“I strongly believe in helping people feel good about themselves,” said Quade. “I’ve always enjoyed taking care of people, and feel honored when people trust me to help guide them on a path to health and wellness.”
As a nurse practitioner, Quade performs regular patient exams, treats acute illnesses and injuries, provides care to patients with chronic conditions, prescribes medication. She is also certified to conduct Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) commercial driving physical examinations.
“I believe that people inherently like to be healthy and happy,” she said. “I enjoy helping people identify their own needs to set and ultimately achieve their goals. Seeing my patients take control over their environment and health to achieve their highest potential is so rewarding.”
The mother of three, Quade enjoys staying active outside of work whether it’s running, biking, kayaking or other outdoor pursuits. She’s also the volunteer coordinator for the Green Lake Area Half Marathon and 5K which occurs on Labor Day weekend. “It’s so important for people to get out there and stay active,” Quade said. “Getting out and exercising can go a long way to improving people’s overall health.”
