Kyla I. Yates, ARNP
Kyla joined the VBCH team December 2020 as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Prior to becoming a Nurse Practitioner, she worked at the local nursing home as a Nurse Manager completing the MDS for Medicare, Medicaid and Insurance Reimbursement for almost 9 years, so she has worked with Van Buren County Residents and families for over 10 years. She started as CNA in 2001, obtained her Associate's Degree in 2008 and worked at Blessing Hospital on the Med/Surg units until moving back to Clark County. Kyla was also a traveling nurse for some bigger hospitals in Galesburg and Peoria, Illinois. This allowed her to see so many different diagnosis and cultures along with making friends with some amazing people that she still keep in touch with. When offered the job at Keosauqua Health Care Center (formerly Good Samaritan Society) in 2012, she decided that it would be nice to sleep in her own bed every night.
When Kyla is not at work, she enjoys outside activities with her husband, Rowdy and son, Preston. They live in rural Clark County, Missouri where they have cows and horses. She would ride her horses every day if time and weather allowed. Also, the Yates' are big St. Louis Cardinals fans! Kyla also loves Harry Potter and Grey's Anatomy!
She is able to see patients from birth far into retirement and is certified to complete DOT physicals. "I have not found my exact niche' as far as a Nurse Practitioner, so right now I love seeing anyone and everyone".
Dr. Remis is an experienced urologist with an excellent bedside manner. He took the time to review my test results with me, including explaining my X-ray images while showing them to me. Being able to receive care close to home saved me hours of travel. Having Dr. Remis at VBCH is an asset to our community.
