Nurse Care Coordinator
Michelle Lisenbee is the nurse care coordinator who offers a great deal of direct and indirect care for patients and supports the work of primary care providers at CHI Health Care. Mrs. Lisenbee is often the consistent connector between CHI and our community and spends a great deal of time speaking with and educating patients.
In addition to having a deep understanding in western medicine, Michelle has knowledge of and belief in integrative health, wellness, disease prevention, and lifestyle medicine. She can often help patients decide which approach or combination of approaches they can choose to effectively reach their health goals.
Michelle launched her nursing career in a hospital and soon moved into a primary care medical setting. She found that this setting was more aligned with her personality and skills because she was able to build relationships with patients and families over a period of time and truly contribute to their health improvement. She was drawn to CHI Health Care because our model encourages strong connections between patients and providers, values diversity of thinking, seeks the least invasive approach to treatment, and seamlessly combines western medicine and complimentary disciplines.
Michelle’s clinical expertise instills great confidence in her patients and colleagues. Her naturally kind and gentle spirit brings enormous comfort and ease as patients face physical and emotional health challenges.
She actively participates in realizing the larger mission and vision of CHI Health Care through her comprehensive and holistic view. She feels it is her calling to walk with people on their journey towards optimum health.
Although she is not currently using these skills at CHI Health Care, Michelle is also a certified massage therapist and has trained in using Healing Touch.
