Lake Region Healthcare has added two new orthopedic specialists Aaron K. Lindstrom, DNP and Kory J. Nordick, PA-C, IPAP, to its growing team of medical staff in the Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Originally from Frazee, Lindstrom comes to LRH with five years of experience as an orthopedic nurse practitioner. He is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the North Dakota Nurse Practitioner Association.
“I enjoy providing orthopedic care for all age groups and activity levels. I believe patient education and shaping the treatment plan to the individual’s unique needs and goals are the key to a good outcome,” Lindstrom said. “The (LRH )staff’s commitment to patient care, the organization and the community were obvious, and I want to be part of that experience,” he added.
Also joining LRH’s orthopedic team is Kory J. Nordick. Nordick comes to LRH from Duluth, where he worked with a fellowship-trained joint physician who specialized in hip and knee revision arthroplasty.
Nordick previously served full time in the military for 12 years. His most recent position was as Medical Operations Officer for the 81st Civil Support Team, a unit responsible for providing support to civilian authorities in incidents involving chemical, biological and radiological agents.
“I have always wanted to work in a close-knit community and in a patient-focused healthcare system,” Nordick said. “Providing care to patients is about more than taking care of the sick and injured, it is also about making patients feel valued and respected. I feel that those values are at the center of what Lake Region is all about.”
Both Lindstrom and Nordick are also part of LRH’s new Orthopedic Joint Care Center (JCC) in Fergus Falls.
The center opened in January, but due to weather the ribbon cutting ceremony had to be rescheduled to 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, at the Joint Care Center which is located on the east end of the hospital’s second floor.
