Mayo Clinic Health System welcomes new providers

Two new providers recently joined the orthopedics team at Mayo Clinic Health System in Red Wing and will provide outreach services to Cannon Falls and Lake City.

Abraham Sanchez, P.A.-C., has a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from South College in Knoxville, Tennessee, and is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants.

Sanchez enjoys the full spectrum of the orthopedics practice, and has a special interest in sports medicine. "Staying active is so important to quality of life. I think that when you feel good, you move more," says Sanchez. "I look forward to working with patients who have limited mobility to help them get back to doing the activities they once enjoyed."

Outside of his work, he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, playing tennis, hiking and cheering on his favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers. Sanchez will see patients in Red Wing and in Lake City.

Amy McAlister, D.N.P., earned her Doctorate of Nurse Practitioner degree from Winona State University in Winona, Minnesota, and is a member of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses.

McAlister previously worked in Cannon Falls as a family nurse practitioner in Primary Care. She looks forward to continuing her work with patients in Cannon Falls and meeting new patients in Red Wing. "Having worked in Primary Care, I know how beneficial it is for patients to have continuity of care," says McAlister. "I am excited to collaborate with my colleagues across sites and departments to help give our patients a seamless experience."

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family, especially with her niece and two nephews, downhill skiing, camping, hiking and attending sporting events to watch the Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Wild.
