A Farewell Letter from Katie McCarthy, CNM - January 2013

To all my patients,

After much consideration , I have made the decision to leave the area and move to Tulsa, Oklahoma to continue my career as a nurse midwife. I will be working at a large teaching hospital where I will have the opportunity to see patients, as well as participate in the training of medical students and residents.

I am incredibly thankful for the time I have had to participate in your health care. I would truly like to thank each and everyone of my patients and extend to you my best wishes for you future health and happiness.

With warm regards,
Katie McCarthy, CNM
