Winona Health-Wolf


Rebecca (Becca) Wolf, CNP, joined the Winona Health Occupational Health team.  As an Occupational Health Nurse Practitioner, Wolf will work in collaboration with area employers to treat work-related accidents and injuries, perform Department of Transportation physicals and other employment physicals, and educate employees on a safe work environment.  “I chose Winona Health because I’ve heard so many good things. I worked in a large corporate facility for the last four years, and I was looking for a different atmosphere,” said Wolf. “I like that Winona Health is a local, independent organization that’s patient-focused and involved in the community.”  If there is one health tip Wolf would like to share, it’s “Exercise is the best medicine. It benefits you physically and mentally, and in some cases, it can even decrease or prevent the need for medication.” She said that she’s looking forward to getting to know patients and providing them with the information and tools they need to take charge and make improvements that will make a difference in their lives. Wolf earned her Master of Science-Family Nurse Practitioner and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks. She is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.  Prior to joining Winona Health, she cared for patients in Mayo Clinic’s Diabetes Consulting Service and served on their quality improvement committee. Her experience also includes providing care for individuals through Employee and Community Health at Mayo Clinic.  Wolf spends her free time running, walking the dogs and biking. She also enjoys reading and baking and added that she even enjoys cleaning.
 
Winona Health’s Occupational Health staff provide a full spectrum of services to help employers in the prevention and management of work-related injuries and assists them in meeting regulatory compliance standards.
