Moundview Memorial Hospital & Clinics is pleased to welcome Beata Bednarska, MD, family medicine, and Heather Greiling, APNP, family nurse practitioner. Both providers are now accepting patients at Moundview’s Family Clinic in Friendship.
Dr. Bednarska is board certified in family medicine and provides care for individuals as well as entire families. She welcomes patients age five and older. Her special interests include women’s health, preventive care and weight loss. She received her medical degree from the University of Warsaw in Poland and completed her residency at St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Chicago, IL. Prior to joining Moundview, she practiced family medicine at a private clinic in Chicago for 20 years.
“I believe it’s important to treat the patient’s soul as well as their body,” said Dr. Bednarska. “I take time to listen to my patients. The more I know about their lifestyles, family history and social issues, the better medical care I am able to provide.”
Dr. Bednarska is a native of rural Poland. She currently resides in Arkdale. She has a daughter and granddaughter who live in Chicago. Her mother, sister and extended family live in Poland. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, tennis, classical music and gardening.
“I feel comfortable in Adams County because it is similar to where I grew up,” said Dr. Bednarska. “I look forward to establishing good relationships in the community and with my patients. Medicine has been my passion since I was five years old.”
Heather Greiling, family nurse practitioner, is a familiar face at Moundview. She was a full-time registered nurse in the hospital’s emergency department for seven years. While working, she went back to school for her master’s degree as a nurse practitioner at Walden University. As a student she completed one of her clinical rotations in Moundview’s Family Clinic under the supervision of Sheryl Obernberger, nurse practitioner. After receiving her master’s degree from Walden University in 2015, Greiling worked as a nurse practitioner at Employer Solutions in Stevens Point, providing primary care and occupational medicine. She also continued to work as a casual nurse in Moundview’s emergency room.
Greiling provides care to patients of all ages, from infants to older adults. Her special interests include asthma and other lung issues, pediatrics, health promotion and disease prevention. She is also certified to perform DOT physicals.
“My goal is to treat patients the way I would want to be treated,” said Greiling. “People know their bodies better than I do. If patients tell me something is wrong, I will work with them until we can determine what the problem is or refer them to a specialist as appropriate.”
Greiling grew up in Wautoma. She currently lives in Big Flats with her fiancé, Corey, son and daughter. Their children are active in Adams-Friendship Middle School athletics. In her spare time, Greiling enjoys hunting, fishing and spending time with her family including her stepdaughter and grandson who live in Green Bay. She also loves animals and has several household pets.
“I am happy to be working full-time again at Moundview,” said Greiling. “I look forward to helping improve the health of local residents.”
