Laurie Blanch, MSN RN CPNP

We have always been a physician-only practice, and we knew it would have to be a special person to be our first nurse practitioner.  Luckily, we have just the person in mind.  We are thrilled to have added Laurie Blanch, MSN, RN, CPNP-PC, IBCLC to our team.  We knew Laurie many years as a Labor & Delivery Nurse at Seton SW Hospital and we were able to personally witness her energy, compassion and exceptional patient care first hand.  She pursued advanced training to become a licensed Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and a licensed lactation consultant.  Many of you may have met Laurie when she rotated with us during her clinical training.   She is warm, smart, devoted and will be a great asset to our patients.  Laurie will be instrumental in developing and running our asthma and allergy skin testing clinics, providing breastfeeding support, as well as providing newborn follow-up.  She is a huge help in seeing sick kids on a same day basis when our doctors’ schedules are packed.  She is able to see patients when physician schedules are busy or if your particular provider is at a conference or on vacation.
