Free State Family Medicine Joins LMH Health

LMH Health is excited to announce its affiliation with Free State Family Medicine, formerly known as Lawrence Family Medicine & Obstetrics. They will officially join LMH Health on Sept. 1 and will relocate to the LMH Health West Campus sometime in 2022.

Having this team officially join LMH Health will allow us not only to better accommodate the needs of our patients, but help grow and expand our services and care to our community.

Providers at the clinic employed by LMH Health will include Drs. Malati Harris, Pamela Huerter, Larisa Kimuri, Lori Nichols and APRN Beth Reynolds. Dr. Larisa Kimuri, a family medicine physician with Free State Family Medicine, said they are excited for the opportunities that are ahead and to be able to continue the incredible care they provided before, just under a new name.

“We are excited to be joining the LMH Health team because of the potential for future growth and the collaboration that will come with being part of a larger group of providers,” she said. “This is a great opportunity not only for our practice, but more importantly for our patients.”

The Free State Family Medicine team will be a great addition to LMH Health’s existing primary care base and bring another level of care to the team. Jared Abel, vice president of Strategy and Clinic Operations at LMH Health, said this is a group LMH Health is proud to be associated with and one that will add great value to our health system.

“This clinic is committed to providing patient-centered care for individuals and families, core values which are very much in line with our patient-first focus,” he said. “We are happy to welcome these clinicians to our team and have such a strong, growing practice on board.”

Free State Family Medicine will join LMH Health affiliated family and internal medicine practices in Lawrence, Baldwin City, Eudora, McLouth and Tonganoxie. They will also be affiliated with specialty practices for orthopedics, oncology, obstetrics and gynecology, pain management, neurology, cardiology, vein treatment, pulmonology, general surgery, gastroenterology, spine care, endocrinology, urology and plastic surgery in Lawrence, as well as an affiliated orthopedic clinic in Emporia.
