WORTHINGTON — Kathy Mitchell couldn’t have been happier with her most recent annual check-up. Mitchell, who lives outside of Wilmont, saw Michelle Kutzke, a certified nurse practitioner and women’s health nurse practitioner who is the newest women’s health provider at Sanford Worthington Clinic. To say that she wouldn’t hesitate to schedule another medical visit with Kutzke is an understatement.

Getzel, who resides with her husband of 67 years, Doug, at Maple Lawn Nursing Home, spends a substantial portion of her days crocheting and writing to friends. She’s tremendously grateful for her laptop computer, and keeps a positive attitude thanks to her faith in a God that would never overwhelm here.
