CHEROKEE REGIONAL BRINGS HOSPITAL-BASED MIDWIFE SERVICES TO NORTHWEST IOWA
Cherokee Regional Medical Center (Cherokee Regional) is pleased to announce that Jeannette Hasley, CNM, ARNP, MSN, has joined the medical staff at Cherokee Regional as a certified midwife.
Hasley received her Associate in Science in Nursing degree from St. Joseph Mercy School of Nursing in Sioux City, Iowa, in 1985. After working for 25 years as a registered nurse, she went back to school and received her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from the University of Iowa.
Further, Hasley received a Master of Science in Nursing degree from Frontier Nursing University in Hyden, Kentucky, in 2022 before practicing as a Board Certified Nurse/Midwife and Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (CNM/ARNP).
“My mantra is birth matters,” says Hasley. “It’s something that you will carry with you the rest of your life. I want to help educate women on your health and empower you to make informed decisions.”
Throughout her experienced tenure, Hasley’s primary focus has been obstetrics and women’s health. While following her passion and seeing a need in the community, she furthered her education to become a certified nurse midwife and now as the ability to deliver babies while providing primary care during pregnancy, labor and delivery. She currently resides in Spencer with her family.
As Northwest Iowa’s only hospital-based certified midwife, Hasley will be able to provide specialized care for Cherokee Regional patients who prefer the care of a midwife with the full support of a Critical Access Hospital. In addition to providing care for patients during pregnancy and delivery, she will also provide specialized care to women from puberty and into menopause.
Gary Jordan, CEO/ President of Cherokee Regional Medical Center is excited to bring these unique services to Cherokee Regional and Cherokee Medical Clinic.
“Cherokee Regional is ecstatic to be the first hospital in Northwest Iowa to bring a certified midwife on to their staff,” says Jordan. “We’ve heard the desire from our patients to have this service and we are happy to be able to make it happen.”
Hasley is currently accepting new patients. To learn more about her services or to schedule an appointment, call Cherokee Medical Clinic at 712.225.6265.
