Welcome New Nurse Practitioner Sarah M. Mgonja, ARNP

Sarah MgonjaMyrtue Medical Center announces the addition of Sarah Mgonja, DNP-FNP, a Nurse Practitioner. Sarah joined Myrtue on August 1, 2016.

Sarah Mgonja received her Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from Creighton University and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Upper Iowa University. For the past eight years, Sarah has worked as a registered nurse in the emergency department for Unity Point Health in Des Moines, IA. Sarah will be offering after hours and urgent appointment services Monday through Friday until 8:00 pm.

Sarah and her husband, Gervas, and their seven-year-old son, Henry, moved to Harlan in July. Gervas works as a Vice President at Town & Country Credit Union. Growing up with four brothers, Sarah enjoys playing sports and outdoor activities. In addition, Sarah enjoys spending time with her family, bird watching with Henry, boating with friends, and traveling to her husband’s homeland of Africa.

“I was born and raised in the small town of Lamoni and always knew rural Iowa was where I wanted to practice and raise my family. As a student at Myrtue, I had the pleasure of learning from the finest medical group around. I consider it an honor to work here, and I am excited to start practicing. Providing after hours and urgent care services to this community will give people the access to healthcare they deserve. Because I attended school in Omaha and worked in Des Moines, I’m often asked how Shelby County compares with the big cities. The truth is, there is no comparison. Myrtue stands alone in the quality of staff and services that are provided. The people of Shelby County make this community one of the greatest places to live and raise my family. I have an overwhelming sense of pride when I say I work here.”

“We are excited to have Sarah join our team and practice in our service area on a full-time basis, while offering extended hours to our community,” commented Barry Jacobsen, CEO.
