WASHINGTON — A new doctor has begun seeing patients at the Washington County Hospital and Clinics Family Medicine.

Dr. David Kuhns began seeing patients Wednesday. He received his medical degree from Penn State University, College of Medicine/Hershey Medical Center and his Bachelor of Arts in biology from Eastern Mennonite University.

Kuhns has participated in multiple medical mission trips and ministry leadership trips for his church, serving as a volunteer physician and completing eight trips with Healthy Niños Honduras since 2008.

“We are pleased to welcome Dr. Kuhns to our team of primary care providers,” said Todd Patterson, chief executive officer at Washington County Hospital and Clinics in a news release. “He will be a great advocate for patients providing thorough care including education to guide patients to meet their personal health and wellness goals.”

The Kuhns family will be relocating from Williamsport, Pa., to the Washington County area to be closer to family. His wife, Melanie, grew up in Kalona and is graduated from Mid-Prairie High School.

As a board-certified family medicine practitioner with more than 12 years of experience treating patients from birth through end of life, Kuhns will treat patients at WCHC Family Medicine, located at 1230 S. Iowa Ave.
