NORTON, Kan. – Norton County Hospital and Norton Medical Clinic want to keep the public apprised of changes in medical staff and services in the most transparent way possible. With that, the hospital and clinic want the public to know that Dr. Hoa-Dung Nguyen has submitted her resignation effective Nov. 16, 2018. Dr. Nguyen has provided services in obstetrics (OB) and family medicine for people of all ages in Norton since 2015.

“My husband and I would like to thank the Norton County Hospital and Clinic for the opportunity to serve the greater Norton County community,” Dr. Nguyen said. “It has been an exciting, challenging and humbling experience. We will miss Norton’s small-town charm and friendly smiles at every corner.”

The hospital’s Board of Trustees, administration and staff would like to thank Dr. Nguyen for her dedication to patients and wish her the best in the future.

This announcement comes shortly after the announcement of Dr. Thomas Kriley resigning from Norton County Hospital and Norton Medical Clinic effective Aug. 1, 2018.
