Gundersen Moundview welcomes nurse practitioner to Westfield Clinic
Gundersen Moundview Hospital and Clinics welcomes nurse practitioner, Danielle Hinze. Hinze is currently seeing patients of all ages in Friendship while completing her orientation but will move to the Westfield Clinic in July.
"I want to develop a relationship with my patients," Hinze said. "I want to be the person they go to for advice so they can make educated decisions about their medical care."
Hinze earned her undergrad degree in nursing from Viterbo University and her master's degree as a family nurse practitioner from Chamberlain University, both while working full time in healthcare.
Hinze has 14 years of experience in clinic and hospital care, where she started in registration before becoming a medical assistant. She later advanced to nursing roles in emergency, intensive care, and medical/surgical departments before becoming a nurse practitioner.
"I am excited to care for patients in Westfield and the surrounding area," Hinze said. "I feel my life has come full circle. I grew up in Westfield, my family lives there and my daughters attend Westfield Elementary. When the opportunity came up to work at Westfield Clinic, I felt it was meant to be. I am honored to be able to give back to community members who have given so much to me."
Hinze has two daughters, ages six and 10. She enjoys spending time with family, volleyball, softball and running. She also helps organize an annual toy drive with friends. Hinze hopes to expand her community involvement.
"I look forward to helping Gundersen Moundview Westfield Clinic continue to grow," Hinze said. "Westfield is a great community. I plan to be here for the long run."
