If you have had surgery here you probably are aware of how valuable and patient-oriented this team member is! Melissa (Missy) Mulherin RN is a surgical nurse and has been with us for 5 years. She previously worked for Century Surgical and Via Christi. Nursing is a second career for Missy. She was able to enjoy being a stay-at-home mom for several years -- she retouched negatives for Millers after the kids went to sleep!
Missy was born and raised in Frontenac and still lives there with her husband of 29 years, Scott. She received her nursing degree from Fort Scott Community College. Missy and Scott have two children. Their daughter Patti is a hairstylist in Lee Summit, Mo, and their son Hunter attends Labette Community College and is pursuing a PTA (Physical Therapist Assistant) degree.
Missy enjoys going to Kansas City to visit her daughter and spending time with family. She loves attending concerts and listening to live music. In more cooperative weather she stays active riding her bike and walking their husky, Chief.
She stays plenty active at work as well! She is described as energetic, pleasant and willing to lend a hand when needed. She also has a great sense of humor! Missy is as happy to work here as we are to have her. “GMC is a great place to work,” she says. “All employees throughout the hospital are friendly and caring. In surgery we work as a team and care for each other like family.”
We are happy to have Missy as part of the GMC family!
For your convenience either Express Care OR our clinics will be open every day through the holidays with the exception of Christmas so our staff can observe the holiday with their family.
Girard was blessed 20 years ago when Dr. Salvador chose to move here from Colorado to begin her practice! There’s nothing we can say that her patients don’t already know. Her reputation speaks for itself and it is loud and clear – she is truly cherished for her skills and compassion.
One of the reasons Dr. Salvador became a physician was because of her great respect for the oncologist who cared for grandmother. “The doctor took such great care of her and gave her a good quality of life,” she said. “I was just so appreciative of him and I wanted to give that kind of care to others.”
When asked what she likes about being a Family Practice physician she said, “I love that I have been able to watch the little ones that I have cared for graduate from high school. It’s special being able to care for multiple generations in a family.”
Dr. Lisa loves Girard – she grew up in a small farming community in northeastern Colorado and felt right at home as soon as she moved here. She married Dr. Robert Huebner on July 27, 2002 and she said that he gave her the greatest gift she ever received… their son, Mason. Dr. Huebner passed away in 2015 and he, too, was a very well-respected physician with GMC for almost 20 years! Dr. Huebner and Dr. Salvador were a great team and she continues to carry on their legacy.
GMC appreciates Dr. Salvador for her contributions to the Girard community (and beyond)! We are grateful for her loyalty, dedication, skills, and kind-heartedness toward all her patients. And if that weren’t enough, her sense of humor always keeps things interesting! We look forward to the next 20 years with her!
