CCMC Welcomes New Physician - David Larson, M.D.
August 24, 2009

Dr. Larson received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Kansas State University in 2002.

He received his medical degree from the University of Kansas School Of Medicine in Wichita, KS in May 2003.  Dr. Larson completed the Residency Program at Via Christy Family Med in Wichita, KS.

David Larson, M.D. began practicing medicine at Clay Center Family Physicians on Monday, August 3, 2009.  Clay County Medical Center CEO, Ron Bender said, “We are extremely pleased welcome Dr. Larson to our hospital and our community.   We are pleased he has chosen to begin his medical practice with us in Clay Center.  He is board certified in family practice and is looking forward to serving people of all ages in this community.”

Dr. Larson grew up in Tescott, KS and his wife, Laurie spent her childhood years in Inman, Kansas.  They met in a ministry group at Kansas State University, where they both graduated in 2002.  David majored in Biology, went to graduate from KU Med in 2006 and finished his residency at Via Christy Family Med and Residency Center in Wichita, Kansas.  Laurie majored in Music Education and taught the Middle School choir for the Blue Valley School District in Kansas City.  When the family moved to Wichita, she taught music in the Middle School at Goddard, Kansas.  When David began his residency, she decided to stay home.  The couple has been married for seven years and has two children; Elizabeth, age 2 and Madeline, 9 months.

Jim Brinkman, CFO at Clay County Medical Center knew Dr. Larson and encouraged him to look at Clay Center as a great place to live, practice medicine and raise a family.  Rebecca Catlin was a roommate at K-State with Dr. Larson’s younger sister.   Although the couple looked at several places before finally deciding on Clay Center, they were impressed with the attractiveness and friendliness of the community.  They both grew up in a rural area and they are comfortable living in a small town.   They are happy to have their families close by and are happy in their new home.

Laurie will continue being a full-time mother.  The family hopes to become involved in the community, with special interests in 4-H and their church.
