Halie Ruff, FNP-C
Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics (GBAHC) welcomes Halie Ruff, FNP-C, to its growing primary care team. Halie joins six other primary care providers and two behavioral health providers at our Family Practice Clinics.
Halie is an advanced practice family nurse practitioner who will be providing primary care services to patients of all ages in Boscobel and Muscoda. Appointments that can be scheduled with Halie include preventative screenings, well-child checks, physicals, acute illnesses and management of chronic medical conditions.
"I wanted a career in nursing and family medicine because I enjoy taking care of people of all ages," Halie says. "I am excited to serve in rural communities similar to those I have grown up in."
"Halie is a dynamic provider with a variety of experiences that will help shape her future with our organization. We are excited about the impact she will make here," added David Hartberg, CEO, Gundersen Boscobel.
Halie completed her nurse practitioner practicum at several area medical clinics, including Gundersen Prairie du Chien Clinic. She also worked previously as an RN at Gundersen's La Crosse Hospital in Trauma and Gundersen Palmer in Hospice. Most recently, Halie has been serving as a Home Health Nurse with Clayton County VNA, where she implemented nursing care plans in an in-home setting.
"We are fortunate to have Halie joining our GBAHC team," shared her colleague Colleen McCurry, MD, vice chief medical officer. "She will be a wonderful addition with her energy and passion to enrich the lives of those in our communities and inside our organization."
"The breadth of Halie's background will be beneficial as we continue to grow our team-based approach to the care of our patients as a whole-person," added Mandy Pettit, clinic director.
In her free time, Halie enjoys spending time outdoors, especially on the river. She also enjoys walking her dog, Bella, traveling and making memories with family and friends.
