Two new providers join Broaddus Family Care

Philippi, W.Va. – Shane Ritchie, APRN, FNP-BC, and Jessica Murray, APRN, NP-C have joined the provider care team at Broaddus Family Care, Broaddus Hospital.  They will see patients scheduled in the outpatient family practice clinic Monday through Friday.

Ritchie received his Associate of Science degree from Davis and Elkins College prior to successfully completing a Bachelor’s and Master of Science in Nursing from Chamberlain University.  He holds a Family Nurse Practitioner board certification. 

Shane and his wife, Heather – also employed by Davis Health System as a Family Nurse Practitioner, spent several years as “travel nurses” in hospitals across the United States before settling down in WV. “Returning to the area has been wonderful.   We were both ready for a more permanent lifestyle, and giving back to the local community is something we both care deeply about,” Shane said.

Jessica Murray, APRN, NP-C, is a lifelong resident of West Virginia, and comes to Broaddus Family Care after graduating from Walden University, Minneapolis, MN with both a Bachelor’s and Master of Science in Nursing.

As a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Murray has experience with both adult and pediatric patients with general and chronic disease health needs.  She is looking forward to the continued experience she will gain from working in family practice and the acute/swing bed unit at Broaddus Hospital. 

“I feel like I relate to my patients on many levels; through my own personal experiences and my medical training,” said Murray.  “I like getting to know people so that I can provide them the best care; the care they deserve.”

Murray is board certified, and is a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.

Broaddus Family Care hours of operation are Monday thru Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. To make an appointment, please call 457-1522.
