It is through those challenges that we focus on hope for the future and discover opportunities to grow. We are excited to welcome our newest Fauquier Health team member, Kathleen McClelland, Certified Nurse Midwife. Adding a second midwife to our OB/GYN and Midwifery practice has given us the opportunity to open a second clinic to provide expanded access for current patients and residents living in the Gainesville, Haymarket, Linton Hall, and Nokesville areas.”
