I grew up in Medicine Lodge, Kansas the eldest of three children. My father, Richard Meador, was a family physician at Medicine Lodge Memorial Hospital for 40 years and now currently works in Greensburg Family Practice for the last three years . After graduating high school I attended Emporia State University and graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Biology. I then decided to attend the Physician Assistant program at Alderson-Broaddus College in West Virginia in August of 2005. I graduated in May of 2008 and immediately started working for Hahn Medical that summer. We specialized in Dermatology and Family Medicine with ten different clinics in the northeastern part of West Virginia. We decided that we wanted to be closer to home and I accepted a position at Kiowa County Memorial Hospital in September of 2011. I have also been doing a once a month dermatology clinic in Medicine Lodge since July of 2010.
I have been happily married for the last ten years. My husband is a funeral director and works for Larrison’s Funeral Home in Pratt and Medicine Lodge. We live in Medicine Lodge, do not have any children at this time but have three wonderful little dogs, Jasper Snow, and Rork. Most of my time is spent either working or hanging out with my family, but in the rare occasions that I do have free time I really enjoy reading and traveling.
Dr. Jenifer Cook is a board-certified Family Medicine Specialist with over 20 years of experience. Dr. Cook does mission work both at home and abroad and has a heart for rural medicine. She is serving as the Chief Medical Officer and seeing patients monthly at Greensburg Family Practice.
My name is Riann Tyree, formerly Riann Heft, and I am a lifelong Greensburg resident. I made the decision to enter the medical field at a very young age and settled on the PA route in early high school prior to attending Kansas State University (go Cats!), where I decided on a major in Kinesiology, the study of exercise physiology. Physical activity and sports have been a major part of my life from the time that I was very young, so that has always been an interest of mine. While at K-State I also worked in an orthopedic clinic, and participated in research that involved studying neurophysiology of the brains of rats during physical activity. A month after graduating from K-State in May of 2018, I started the PA program at Wichita State University and got my first (fur) baby, Mosely! A year into my PA school career I married Trevor, my long time best friend and boyfriend since middle school. I landed on the decision to accept a position in family medicine at Family Practice Associates of Western Kansas, a clinic in Dodge City, KS following graduation of my program, where I worked for about a year and a half until the arrival of my son, Sutter in May of 2022. As you can imagine, I hated the idea of being an hour away from my baby on a daily basis.. This, paired with the idea of the opportunity to serve my little hometown led me to the decision to accept a position at KCMH, and it was one of the best ones I could have made! I look forward to helping care for the people that make this place my home, and continuing to become more integrated into the community that I love!
