Agnesian HealthCare Welcomes New Nurse Practitioner To Waupun

Agnesian HealthCare’s Fond du Lac Regional Clinic is pleased to welcome Andrea Smits, APNP, as its new nurse practitioner with its General Surgery & Orthopedics department at the Waupun clinic, 608 W. Brown Street.

As a nurse practitioner, Smits assists general surgery and orthopedic physicians in offering a complete range of care including orthopedic concerns (total joint replacement, sports medicine, pediatric orthopedics, trauma and fractures) and general surgery issues (advanced laparoscopic procedures, varicose veins and colonoscopies).

“I work collaboratively with my patients and partner with them to effectively diagnose and treat their specific health concern,” Smits says. “Being able to serve the community I live and grew up in is extremely rewarding for me.”

            A graduate of Marian University, Smits earned her master’s degree in Nursing from Concordia University. She joins Drs. Eric Nelson, orthopedics; Robert Mikkelsen, general surgery; and Karen Reynolds, general surgery.

            A Waupun resident, Smits and her husband have three children. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, being outdoors, biking, sports, exercise, cooking and baking, and reading.
