Mary Bjornstad, FNP, Retiring the End of the Year

One of the biggest changes Mary has witnessed since she started in 2002 is the introduction and use of the electronic medical record, as well as advancements in lab, imaging, medications, diagnostics and treatments.

Mary will be remembered for her strong work ethic, dedication to MBSH and BJC, and her commitment to the care of our patients.

Upon retirement, Mary notes she’ll be doing, “Whatever I want!” with plans to spend more time with friends and family – especially her new grandbaby! – as well as run, hike, sew and travel.

Mary says she’ll miss the people here at MBSH the most – her co-workers and patients. 

“I have been blessed to work with fantastic doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants and administration staff members, and our wonderful patients,” says Mary. 

Thank you, Mary, for your dedication and service to our hospital and community, and best wishes for a wonderful retirement!

Total Knee Replacement Surgery at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital Helped Relieve Years of Chronic Pain for Bourbon, Mo. Resident

Our knees tend to show more wear and tear as we age, including soreness, aching, and general discomfort from simple daily movements like walking, exercising, and even standing. One of the common underlying causes of knee pain is osteoarthritis, which occurs as the cartilage in the joint deteriorates causing inflammation. Bourbon resident Mike Johnson, 52, had been battling chronic knee pain in his right knee due to osteoarthritis since around age 40. He had resorted to receiving cortisone injections while under the care of an orthopedic specialist in Washington, Mo., which helped for a few years.
