Greeley County Health Services is proud to welcome Jenna Cox to their Physical Therapy department. Jenna graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology and Pre-Physical Therapy. She most recently received her doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from the University of Kansas Medical Center in May of 2013.
Jenna is very familiar with the rural, agricultural way of life. She grew up on a farm outside of Inman, Kansas, where her family farmed, raised ostriches and ran a dairy.
“I have felt right at home since moving out here to western Kansas,” Jenna said.
Jenna met and married Gabe Cox, originally from Weskan, Kansas. After living in Kansas City to finish her schooling, Jenna and Gabe decided to move back to Weskan to be back in a rural community and to be closer to family.
“I love the area that Greeley County Health Services provides services to. I have always had a love for small, rural farming communities,” Jenna said.
Jenna has had the opportunity through her schooling to work with patients in several different settings involving physical therapy clinics, hospitals, and long term care facilities.
“All of these experiences have grown my passion to help patients function to the best of their ability as a physical therapist,” Jenna said.
According to Jenna, her main goal as a new physical therapist is to provide quality and compassionate care to people in the community and surrounding communities. She had been talking with GCHS administrators about the possibility of joining the GCHS team since the beginning of 2013 and decided she wanted to come to Greeley County Health Services in early March.
“I wanted to be part of a team of healthcare providers who work to provide the best possible care for their patients in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and that is what I saw in GCHS,” Jenna said.
Greeley County Health Services now employs two full-time physical therapists; Jenna will be joining veteran P.T., Brian Miller, in providing more physical therapy services to the Greeley, Wallace, and surrounding counties.
“We are thrilled to have Jenna Cox join our team. She brings a new excitement to our Physical Therapy department. We hope to utilize her skills both here in the Greeley County hospital and at Wallace County,” Debbi Lehner, CEO, said.
