SWEDISHAMERICAN HOSPITAL WELCOMES NEW APRN ELLEN FOLLETT TO HEART INSTITUTE
ROCKFORD, Illinois – SwedishAmerican is pleased to welcome new APRN Ellen Follett to the Heart Institute (1340 Charles Street, Rockford IL).
Originally from Syracuse, New York, Ellen received her medical degree from Maryville University of St. Louis. A member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, Ellen’s medical interests include Holistic Medicine, Mental Health/Psychological Care, Nutrition, Patient Education and Grief.
“My philosophy of care is to help others understand that psychiatric symptoms and behaviors are not separate from physiological structures and functions,” Ellen said. “For the best possible outcome, each person needs to be seen as a whole and not as a series of symptoms. The patient is the most important part of our care team. I strive to accomplish this by providing education to help end the stigma of psychiatric care and helping people understand they have the power to determine and direct their own care.”
