Dr. Jennifer Reed Completes Residency and Receives Awards

Dr. Jennifer Reed graduated last month from Indiana University, Indianapolis, Indiana completing her Internal Medicine Residency. Dr. Reed was awarded two awards at graduation. One of the awards she received was the Geriatric Excellence Award.

The second award was the Ebner Blatt Award. This award is given to a resident who exemplifies the professionalism that Dr. Blatt exhibited during his 40 year career at Methodist Hospital. The award is given for unselfish devotion to patients and compassionate concern for others.

Dr. Reed received her Doctor of Medicine from Southern Illinois University in Springfield in 2013. Dr. Reed is originally from Peoria.

Her parents are Tom and Diane Carroll of Peoria. She is married to Dr. Loren Reed, son of Randy and Mary Reed of Little York. The Reed family is currently in the process of moving from Indiana to the home they purchased outside Stronghurst.

In 2015, Dr. Reed signed a contract with Eagle View Community Health System to join their staff upon her graduation. Eagle View Community Health System is thrilled that Dr. Reed will be seeing patients starting July 25, 2016.

Dr. Reed will see patients at the Oquawka and Stronghurst Clinics, spending two days a week in both clinics. Dr. Reed will be able to see patients sixteen years old and older. Doctors of internal medicine are able to treat the whole person, not just internal organs and can be considered primary care physicians. Eagle View's previous physician, Dr. Pogue, was also a doctor of internal medicine. Eagle View will still have nurse practitioners on staff to care for younger patients.

Dr. Reed joins Eagle View's Nurse Practitioners, Luanne Johnson, Michelle Hartman, and Laurel Welty. Eagle View plans to have open houses at both clinics to welcome Dr. Reed to the community.

If you are interested in having Dr. Reed or other Eagle View staff come to an organization/community meeting, please contact the Executive Director, Lori Sutton at the Oquawka location to set-up speaking engagements.

Dr. Reed and the Nurse Practitioners are accepting new patients. Eagle View accepts Medicare, Illinois Medicaid, Iowa Medicaid (Title 19), private pay and most insurance providers.
