The World of Centered Health & Wellness is Growing!!

Hey Everyone, 
It is with great pleasure that I am announcing that Centered Health & Wellness is transitioning from just a chiropractic office into an integrated MD/DC physical medicine clinic. Centered Health & Wellness is teaming up with Dr. William Bailey MD and Nurse Practitioner Suzanne Hornsby to offer physical medicine services. Physical Medicine will be absent of the typical medical office with pills and midcations but will help with regenerating tissue around old injuries and give us better guidance with treating pain. 

Still the same one on one treatment from Dr Corey but with so much more in our ability to help you.

Today I am happy to introduce our Nurse Practitioner Suzanne Hornsby MSN, RN

Expertise and experience: I have been a nurse for about 6 years now. I started out on a cardiac Stepdown floor until I moved to Chattanooga for Nurse Practitioner School. In Chattanooga I started in the Erlanger ICU Float Pool, working in each of the 9 intensive care units, and was promoted into the assistant nurse manager role for the Medical ICU’s. I have experienced a little bit of everything in these roles and am very excited to dive into this new role.  

Previous employers: Erlanger Baroness Hospital, Tennova North Knoxville Medical Center

Education and training: I went to Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, TN for an Associate’s and Bachelor’s in Nursing. University of TN Chattanooga for my Master’s in Nursing (and hopefully eventually my Doctorate in Nursing and Masters in Business Administration)

Awards and honors: Inducted into Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society of Nurses, as well as Golden Key Honor Society. Advanced Education Nursing Traineeship COMPASS grant recipient, Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students recipient, CANDL traineeship grant recipient

Community and professional service: President of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses-Chattanooga Chapter, Member of the Tennessee Organization of Nurse Executives, Hamilton County Reserve Corps Member, Volunteer for Remote Area Medical Clinic and annual Chattanooga Minority Health Fair.

Teaching, writing and publishing: Nothing published yet, though I did my Master’s thesis on treatment of ADHD with alternative therapies, such as physical activity and cognitive behavioral therapy.

Special projects and accomplishments: Tennessee Donor Services Hospital Liason, Special Pathogens Response Team Leader and training program specialist.

Brief personal details (family and hobbies): I went to Baylor for high school, so I feel like a Chattanooga girl even though I actually grew up on a dairy farm in Decatur, TN. Growing up on the farm taught me the value of hard work, and gave me a special appreciation for getting away from the city life pace every now and then. My dad and grandparents still live on the farm, but my mom and brothers are now living down here in Chattanooga, so I can truly say Chattanooga feels like home. My main hobby/passion is CrossFit. I have seen CrossFit change lives; getting patients off antidepressants, anxiolytics, antihypertensives, and even Diabetes and ADHD medications. It provides an outlet like none other. I can’t wait to work with Dr. Idrogo here at Centered Health and Wellness, to not only provide patients with pain/symptom relief, but also health prevention activities that can improve overall quality of life for many years to come.
