Great News!

Catholic Charities is kicking off 2024 with great news: We’ve hired the first two members of the Marisol Health Northern Colorado team who, along with Dr. Kevin Tool, will lead operations at the new clinic. Sharon Broderick Keck has been named clinic director and Lisa Gesterling has come onboard as the certified nurse midwife.

Sharon has nearly 40 years of experience in nursing administration, practice and education in both major teaching and community hospitals in Colorado, Illinois, Ohio and Arizona. Most recently, as a labor, delivery and postpartum nurse at Longmont United Hospital, Sharon has extensively embraced patient and staff education, professional/shared governance, quality improvements and change management. With a Master’s of Science in Nursing from the Ohio State University and a long history of professional honors, Sharon is looking forward to bringing her dedication to women’s health issues and patient-focused care to Marisol Health Northern Colorado.

Lisa is a certified nurse midwife and women’s health nurse practitioner. She specializes in obstetric and gynecological care, natural family planning and well-woman exams. Most recently a certified nurse midwife and women’s health nurse practitioner at Bella Health and Wellness, Lisa has a Master of Science from Georgetown University School of Nursing and Health Studies. Her previous clinical experience underscores her dedication to providing holistic, dignified care. She is a published journal author, a member of Catholic Medical Association and she lives in Ft. Collins.

In addition, Dr. Kevin Tool, Obstetrician and Gynecologist and longtime Fort Collins resident, is serving as Marisol Health Northern Colorado’s Medical Director. As such, he will provide clinical guidance and consultation to the medical team and receive referrals of patients with higher risk medical conditions, including those who need surgical procedures. Dr. Tool will also review and sign off on all ultrasounds and share delivery responsibilities with Marisol Health nurse midwives.

Gearing Up

Construction on the building is complete, Catholic Charities has taken possession of the building and we’re working to secure remaining furniture and fixtures. The Electronic Health Record system setup is in progress. Financial issues like malpractice insurance and financial projections are underway, and we’re working to identify and contract with vendors and suppliers. We are working now to identify and hire additional team members, are implementing an onboarding plan, completing the credentialing process and developing clinic operations protocols and manuals.

Getting Involved

We know many of you are eager to volunteer at Marisol Health Northern Colorado and those opportunities will be available and posted soon. In the meantime, we’d love for you to get to know our Catholic Charities team at Samaritan House Fort Collins or at Samaritan House Greeley on the Guadalupe Campus. They are always looking for committed and dedicated volunteers and we would be grateful if you would consider volunteering.

The Journey Forward

These initiatives reflect our unwavering commitment to delivering quality services and support to those in need. We are excited about the progress we are making across Northern Colorado and look forward to continuously improving our services to better serve our community. Thank you for your support and partnership in this journey.
