PSN IS proud to announce that Ken Baxa, D.O., will be providing Rheumatology at 4 Hospital locations in Kansas: Clara Barton Hospital and Clinics in Hoisington, Republic County Hospital in Belleville, Ellsworth County Medical Center in Ellsworth and St. Luke Hospital and Living Center in Marion.
“I’ve been very happy with PSN. They’ve been supportive throughout my training and allow me to practice rheumatology that focuses more on patient care”.
A Kansas native, Baxa grew up in Salina and attended undergraduate school at Fort Hays State University and then Kansas Wesleyan. After obtaining his undergrad, he attended medical school at the University of Pikeville Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine.
