Welcoming Jessica Cruz to the Moscow Medical Team
Moscow Medical would like to announce that Jessica Cruz, a nationally certified Physician Assistant, has joined our team. Some of you may recognize Jessica, as she worked with Moscow Medical as a Medical Assistant, while finishing her Physician Assistant training, and it was during that time she knew Moscow Medical was the right place for her. Jessica is genuinely proud to be joining the longest running, privately owned family practice on the Palouse and Moscow Medical considers Jessica the perfect fit to continue their tradition of providing excellent healthcare in a timely fashion with a personal touch. Jessica’s enthusiasm for healthcare and the well-being of others is undeniable and her personality is ideal for the welcoming culture Moscow Medical is known for.
Jessica began her career in healthcare as a Certified Athletic Trainer after graduating, Suma Cum Laude, from California State University – Fresno with a B.S. degree in Kinesiology. While she loved working with student athletes, she felt limited in the scope of care she could provide, so she decided to continue her education in the healthcare field and found family medicine to be her passion. After attending the University of Idaho Jessica went on to earn her master’s degree from Idaho State University, though if you ask her she does consider herself a Vandal at heart. Jessica and her family love attending as many Vandal and high school sporting events that they can.
Jessica is truly excited for the opportunity to provide optimal healthcare to the residents of her community. Having grown up in a small agricultural town, in California, Jessica and her husband knew they wanted to provide a similar experience for their own children, where they could get to know their neighbors and be part of a tight-knit community. So throughout her training Jessica always took the time to understand the daily lives of those she was treating and learned that the treatment for an ill college student is not necessarily the same for a working mother. Taking the time to know her patients has been Jessica’s priority and has aided her in providing the best healthcare treatment possible. Whether you are a parent with a growing family, a college student, or senior in years, Jessica is here to help you make the best choices for your long-term healthcare needs.
As a proud and active member of the Palouse community, Jessica can’t wait to do her part in helping her neighbors’ live happy and healthier lives. To schedule an appointment with Jessica, please call Moscow Medical at 208-882-7565.
