“The Lord called me to health care at a young age when my grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer,” Sims says. “The nurses who provided exceptional care to her during her time of need made my family feel special and cared for. This experience opened my eyes to the importance of individualized health care, and I immediately knew my calling was to serve in the health care field.”
She says she chose North Mississippi Medical Clinics because she is passionate about helping others in her community by improving access to exceptional health care. “Iuka Medical Clinic provides outstanding and individualized care to patients of all ages and walks of life,” she says.
