July 10, 2017

NORTON, Kan. – Norton County Hospital has hired a new physician assistant to join its medical staff. Taylor Bieberle is tentatively set to begin seeing patients at Norton County Hospital and Clinics in mid-August.

Bieberle is from Claflin, Kansas. He is a graduate of the University of Idaho, where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in biology and minor in business. While at the University of Idaho, he also played tennis for four-and-a-half years. He graduated in spring 2017 with his Master of Physician Assistant Studies from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Boston.

A well-studied practitioner, Bieberle said he is interested in all aspects of medicine and has training experience in general surgery, emergency medicine, pediatrics, women's health, family medicine, internal medicine, orthopedics and psychology.

"I am very much looking forward to working at Norton County Hospital,” Bieberle said. “Before starting my journey in becoming a physician assistant, my passion has always been to practice rural medicine. My foundation is rural; I understand rural, and I owe my rural roots for molding me into the person I am today. I am here to provide patients and the community with the highest level of care and respect.”

Bieberle added that he and his wife Natalie, along with their dog Briggs, are excited to be a part of the Norton community. Natalie Bieberle is a physical therapist who started working at Norton County Hospital in 2016.

“We are thrilled to have Taylor join our medical staff,” said Gina Frack, Norton County Hospital’s interim CEO. “I appreciate his knowledge and enthusiasm as he grows his medical career with us in Norton.”
