Thayer County Health Services is excited to announce that Travis Wright, Physician Assistant, will be joining our Medical Staff and begin practicing May 1, 2020. Travis grew up in Morganville, KS and received his undergraduate degree from Bethany College in Lindsborg, KS. He went on to complete his graduate degree to become a Physician Assistant at Wichita State University in Wichita, KS. Travis specializes in family medicine and is accredited by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
“I am excited to return to a rural healthcare setting and join the talented and caring team at TCHS. I grew up in a rural area, and after a life-changing sports injury in high school, I spent a lot of time in a healthcare setting. This set the stage for my interest in becoming a part of the healthcare industry. One of my motivations in becoming a Physician Assistant was to return to a rural setting and take care of a farming community like I grew up in,” said Travis.
Travis will see patients at the Bruning, Davenport, and Hebron Clinics. He is familiar with life in a rural community and has worked in a healthcare setting for over 11 years. Travis and his family recently moved to Thayer County; please join us in welcoming them to the community.
When asked about his goals as a provider at TCHS, Travis stated, “My goals include getting to know my patients so that we can work together to provide quality healthcare outcomes. I want each of my patients to know that I care about them as a person and not just a patient.” Travis enjoys photography, especially scenic photography, and since moving to Nebraska really enjoys viewing the Sandhill Cranes and photographing them. He is married to his wife, Jerilyn, of nearly seven years, and they have one son, Rylan, who keeps them on their toes and will be expecting another child in the Fall of 2020. Jerilyn is a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, and as a family, they enjoy traveling across the country and internationally. Thayer County Health Services hopes you will join them in welcoming Travis Wright, Physician Assistant.
