Roxanne Swistock, CRNP
J.C. Blair Welcomes Adult Nurse Practitioner
J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital's Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of adult nurse practitioner Roxanne Swistock, CRNP, to its medical staff. Swistock joins J.C. Blair Medical Services and will see patients in both the Primary Care Center in Huntingdon and the Trough Creek Medical Care Center in Cassville.
As a nurse practitioner, Swistock provides primary health care services similar to that of a physician. She can order, perform and interpret diagnostic tests such as lab work and x-rays; diagnose and treat acute and chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, infections and injuries; prescribe medications and other treatments; and provide preventive and well-woman care.
Prior to joining J.C. Blair, Roxanne worked at Mount Nittany Physician Group in State College as a registered nurse and nursing supervisor in pulmonary, rheumatology, and neurology. She completed her Master's of Science in Nursing at Bloomsburg University and her Bachelor of Science at The Pennsylvania State University.
Roxanne is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and The Pennsylvania Coalition of Nurse Practitioners.
"Learning the community, the resources that are available to the Huntingdon community, and making it feel like home has been an easy and fun transition," Roxanne said. "Being so close to the college campus and seeing the cultural diversity within the community has made this experience a wonderful one so far."
Roxanne lives in Tyrone with her husband and dogs. She is an avid runner who enjoys 5K runs and marathons and taking hikes whenever possible.
Roxanne welcomes new patients at the J.C. Blair Primary Care Center located at 900 Bryan Street, Suite 7, on the campus of J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital. She will be in office on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays. To schedule an appointment, please call (814) 643-8300.
