Angelica Lappe

Family Nurse Practitioner Angelica Lappe will be rejoining Iron County Medical Center’s Family Care Clinic on June 3, according to Joshua Gilmore, CEO for Iron County Medical Center.

“We are very excited to welcome Angelica back to our Family Care Clinic team,” stated Gilmore. “She provides a great blend of top-notch clinical education and knowledge with a strong passion for providing exceptional care to her patients.  Her past experience serving patients throughout our community demonstrates her dedication, commitment and passion for rural health.”

Angelica’s skills and abilities include evaluation, diagnosis, management, education and prevention of a wide variety of illnesses and disease within family practice, dermatology, urgent care and emergency care settings.  She exhibits a passion for patient care and is enthused to be returning to ICMC.

“My goal for each of my patients is to make them feel better than they did when they walked through the door that day,” she stated.  “Some of them come in thinking that isn’t possible.  It makes my day when I can prove to them it is possible.  Making them feel better means actively listening to them, learning about their lifestyle, discussing their health issues, and determining the options available so we can decide together which one is best for them.

After graduating from Central High School in Park Hills, Angelica earned her Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) certification at Mineral Area College (MAC).  She went on to attain her Associate Degree in Nursing at MAC, her Bachelor of Science Degree through Central Methodist University, MAC campus, in 2007, and her Masters of Science in Nursing through St. Louis University of Missouri in 2010.  Since receiving her Masters, Angelica has practiced at Midwest Health Group Convenient Care, Iron County Medical Center Family Care Clinic and Washington County Memorial Hospital.

“Angelica will begin seeing patients here on June 4, and we are already receiving calls from patients who wish to schedule an appointment with her,” said Amber Keller, practice manager at ICMC’s Family Care Clinic.  “Whether you are one of her existing patients who are following her as she transitions to our rural health clinic or you want to start seeing Angelica as your primary care provider, we encourage you to call us as soon as possible at (573) 546-0184 so we can get your appointment scheduled.”
