Daphne, AL (September 11, 2020) — Daphne, Al-based, Baldwin Bone & Joint is excited to announce the opening of its new Osteo Health Clinic, a comprehensive, patient-centered care facility to help clients develop and maintain optimal bone health. Under the leadership of Clinic Coordinator Holly Scott, CRNP, the Osteo Health Clinic specializes in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and other related bone conditions.
“Osteoporosis is a big issue for a lot of people, especially women over 50 and post-menopausal women,” Scott said. “Nearly half of all women in those groups are likely to have a broken bone or other bone issues due to osteoporosis and 25 percent of men over 50 will likely have the same problems.
Our goal is to be proactive advocates for our patients by utilizing our skills and knowledge to lower their risks for bone loss, fractures, and other health issues. We provide each patient with a personalized treatment plan and preventive care to put them on the path to better bone health, ultimately keeping them in the game of a healthy and active life.”
The initial appointment for new patients includes a thorough medical history review and scheduling of a DEXA scan bone density screening and lab work at Thomas Hospital. Follow-up visits incorporate a review of test results and recommended treatment options for each patient’s customized treatment plan.
Team leader Holly Scott, CRNP, has been in practice as a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner since 2016 with a primary clinical experience focused on osteo health. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Georgia Southern University, an Accelerated Master of Science in Nursing Pathway, and a Master of Science in Family Nurse Practitioner from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She is also fully trained in Basic Life Support (CPR/AED) from the American Heart Association and certified in Fracture Liaison Service from the National Osteoporosis Foundation.
Scott has received numerous recognitions, including membership in the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society for Nursing. She was a University Honors Program Scholar at Georgia Southern University and among a few selected students to receive the HRSA Scholarship from UAB.
Scott said her primary goal is to partner with those patients, identified as high risk for osteoporosis and ultimately fractures and falls, to activate a game plan to ensure a strong, active lifestyle for years to come.
“Our entire staff here is dedicated to ensuring that each patient and their family members understand and are comfortable with the treatment options and health plans specifically developed,” states Dr. Andy Harcourt, Baldwin Bone & Joint physician. “Our practice is excited to offer this new option, under the direction of Holly Scott, CRNP, to our patients facing the risks associated with osteoporosis.”
