Camden Family Care welcomes NP

Nurse practitioner Kristen Orts has joined the staff of Camden Family Care and is accepting new patients of all ages.

Located at 5 Masonic Ave., in Camden, Rome Memorial Hospital’s primary care practice is a certified patient centered medical home that provides care for adults and children.

Orts graduated from Utica College in 2008 with her bachelor’s degree in nursing and advanced her training with a master’s degree in nurse midwifery and post-graduate certification as a family nurse practitioner from Frontier Nursing University, Hyden, Kentucky.

Orts started her career as a labor and delivery nurse before she became a midwife and nurse practitioner.  For the last three years, she has been providing obstetric and gynecological care to women of all ages in Syracuse.  She has been an international board-certified lactation consultant since 2013.

“Drawing from my midwifery experience, patient education, shared decision making and promoting wellness are the cornerstones of my practice as a nurse practitioner,” Orts said.
