Neighborcare clinic loses another provider

Katie Konrad, a nurse practitioner at Neighborcare Health, has resigned. Her last day will be in July, according to Mary Schilder, Neighborcare’s director of marketing communications.

Many islanders know Konrad from her work at the clinic and her more than 15 years working with Dr. Charles Weispfenning at Vashon Plaza Medical Clinic.

Neighborcare has begun the process of filling the position and will enlist on-call medical providers in the interim, Schilder said.

“We appreciate the patience and support of the community as we make these transitions,” she added.

Konrad, who began at Neighborcare in March of 2017, did not respond to an email asking about her resignation or future plans.

Her departure follows the recent news that Neighborcare asked physicians Gary Koch and Scott Chaffin to leave this month as part of cost-cutting measures to contend with an operating deficit. Koch had been planning on retiring at the end of the year. They will be replaced with a nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant.
