August 2, 2019

Dr. Josh McCoy and familyNORTON, Kan. – Dr. Josh McCoy will be the next doctor to join Norton County Hospital and Norton Medical Clinic on temporary assignment. He will be in Norton periodically through the month of August and later in October to provide additional coverage throughout the facility.

Dr. McCoy grew up in a small town in the state of Washington. He completed his undergraduate degree from Seattle Pacific University and medical school at Loma Linda University in California. He is a member of the class of 2019 family medicine residency program at Ascension Via Christi in Wichita.

“Medical training, wonderful people and amazing sunsets brought my wife and I east from the Pacific Northwest to Kansas,” Dr. McCoy said. “What I like most about medicine is the art. No two people are the same despite any similarity of diagnosis.”

Like several other visiting physicians in Norton this past year, Dr. McCoy has a passion for medical mission work abroad. Dr. McCoy said that his faith in Jesus is his motivation. He also enjoys hiking, fishing, camping, outdoor projects, rock climbing with his wife and tossing his 1-year-old daughter in the air.

Norton County Hospital asks the public to please welcome Dr. McCoy during his temporary assignment. The hospital will continue to keep the area citizens informed of physicians temporarily working at its facility while recruitment continues for permanent physicians.
