Charlie G. Joslin M.D.

Dr. Charlie Joslin| Ellinwood District Hospital & ClinicI come from Southeast Kansas where my Great Grandfather had been a doctor long before I was born. Coming from a town that held an active memory of my Great Grandfather who practiced medicine at the beginning of the twentieth century. I decided that becoming a physician would be my professional goal.

After practicing nursing and attending a Baptist Seminary I entered Medical School at the University of Kansas where I completed my M.D. in Kansas City and Family Medicine residency at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita.  From there I moved right across the street to Hillside Medical office where I practiced for 13 years.

As my family grew, I moved to Russell Kansas and worked at Russell Regional Hospital before coming to Ellinwood in December 2009.

My interest has always been in Primary care and involvement with people at important times through the life-span.  This reflects the culture of medicine as I understood it to be practiced long ago.  Although times have changed, I endeavor to hold true to those more traditional values and structures that drew me to consider medical practice in the beginning.

Deb Wolfe APRN

Deb_WolfeMy name is Debbie Wolfe.  I am a Family Nurse Practitioner and I am very happy to join the practice at the Ellinwood Hospital and clinic.  I have a Masters degree from Wichita State University, completed in December 1993.  For the next 15 years I worked at the Sterling Medical Center and Lyons Hospital.  In July 2010 I started working for Docs Who Care, working in various small hospitals and clinics in Kansas when there were openings for providers that couldn’t be filled.  That is how I first came to work here in Ellinwood.  I enjoyed the work here so much that when an opening came up, I was glad to fill it.

I have lived in Sterling (Kansas) my whole life.  My husband and I live just west of Sterling on a small acreage.  We have horses, calves, dogs, and a cat, as well as some quail we raised.  I enjoy counted cross stitch and other hand embroideries.  My husband is semi-retired and enjoys blacksmithing and driving the horses  with a wagon or fancy carriage.  We have one son, Scott, who is a paramedic with Rice County EMS.
