Cabinet Peaks Medical Center hires new hospitalist

Print Article

Cabinet Peaks Medical Center is pleased to welcome hospitalist, Georgianna Coon, NP-C to the clinical staff.

Cabinet Peaks Medical Center began using hospitalists on the patient floor in 2016. A hospitalist is a provider who specializes in the care of acutely ill patients or those who have been admitted to the hospital. Hospitalists focus only on patients admitted to the hospital inpatient unit and do not see patients in an outpatient setting. The hospitalist on staff leads the care team, and may consult with a patient’s primary care physician from time to time.

Coon received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from Northern Michigan University. In 1999, she decided to further her education and completed her Master of Science in nursing with a family nurse practitioner track from Gonzaga University in Spokane. But Coon wasn’t done yet, she then went on to complete her Post Master’s Certificate with a track in acute care nurse practitioner from Vanderbilt University in Tennessee.

Additionally, Coon has held, and continues to hold, certifications from the American Nurses Credentialing Center for Family Practice since 2002, and from the American Nurses Credentialing Center for Acute Care since 2010.

Before beginning her work at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center, Coon worked as a Nurse Practitioner at Saint Patrick Hospital in Missoula, where she still holds privileges.

Coon’s husband, Steve, is originally from the Libby area, and works as a physical therapist locally, which is part of what drew them here. “I also like the size and friendliness of the community, and all of the outdoor activities available here,” she stated.

“We are excited that Georgianna has decided to join our team of outstanding hospitalists,” said Bruce Whitfield, CEO at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center. “She is a welcome addition to our Acute Care Floor.”

In her spare time, Coon likes to hike, sew, cross country ski, and spend time with her family. She is also an accomplished pianist.

Together, she and Steve have 4 children.
