Physician Assistant Kayla Hagen has joined the Urgent Care Department at the Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Baxter Clinic in Baxter, Minnesota.

“My spouse and I have been making frequent trips to the Brainerd Lakes area from Madison, Wisconsin, for the past seven years to visit family and friends, and we’re thrilled to make this our home,” says Hagen. “After practicing in an urban setting, I’m excited to bring my experiences to this rural community and care for patients here.”

Hagen earned a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Madison, Wisconsin. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

“I love the broad variety of ages and patient conditions that we see in Urgent Care on a daily basis,” says Hagen. “I want my patients to know that I’m here to listen, be their advocate, and help them and their loved ones to the best of my ability.”
