Britton Zuccarelli, M.D.

Born with congenital heart disease, I've been tied to the medical community since an early age, and I felt a natural calling to care for children and their families. During my medical training, I was particularly drawn to children with neurological conditions. I look forward to bringing child neurology sub-specialty pediatric care to the Salina community, helping take care of your children's headaches and seizures, among other challenges, and watching them grow and develop.

Dr. Rebecca Martin, M.D.

I am excited to serve in Salina as a pediatrician. I've spent most of my life in Kansas and look forward to living closer to family and friends. In late elementary school I decided to become a physician in order to make people well. Through my jobs at local clinics and my small-town hospital, I fell in love with spending time with patients and families at the hospital bedside and clinic. Pediatric medicine, family education, and childhood development were especially intriguing to me, so I became a pediatrician.

Keri Kavouras, APRN

I have always enjoyed working with people and knew healthcare was the place to do it. I was attracted to the field of nursing after caring for ill loved ones and spending time on the other side of healthcare as the patient during my teenage years. I wanted to find a way to help better people's lives in a way that promoted health and well-being. I enjoy working with all ages of children in all realms of care; wellness, illness, sports, and injury. Today, I find my inspiration for my work as a mom and aunt.

Jessica Scott, APRN

After caring for my terminally ill mother during her courageous battle with ovarian cancer, I knew I belonged in the healthcare field. There's nothing more satisfying than bringing comfort to patients in their most vulnerable state. My nursing experience ranges from working as a CNA in college at an orthopedic clinic to working as a registered nurse both on a surgical floor and in a neurosurgery clinic.
