CLYDE — Haywood Regional Medical Center announced that Traci N. Lombard, DO, has joined its staff and will be offering pediatric services to patients throughout Haywood County and beyond.
Dr. Lombard brings 20 years of board-certified pediatric experience to HRMC, and joins a great team hospital-affiliated pediatric caregivers.
“Dr. Lombard has years of experience in treating children – from nursery rounding to teen physical fitness, and she is an excellent addition to our hospital team,” said Chris Fensterle, interim CEO of HRMC. “Taking care of our county’s youngest residents is so important, and Dr. Lombard’s expertise will be valuable as HRMC strives to meet our region’s evolving healthcare needs.”
Dr. Lombard joins HRMC from Arizona, where she served patients and families in a variety of hospital-based, private and community practices. She graduated from the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1997, then completed her residency at Phoenix Children’s Hospital/Maricopa Medical Center. She, her husband, and their two children live in Haywood County.
“My family’s relocation to the area is the culmination of a multi-year, nation-wide search for our new hometown. From our very first visit to Haywood County over three years ago, we have been drawn to the area. Now, having been blessed with the opportunity to call it home, we hope to engage the community and demonstrate the same warmth and kindness of spirit that drew us here,” shared Lombard.
Dr. Lombard will be seeing patients at her offices at Mountain Pediatrics. Appointments may be made at 452-8878.
