About Newsom Healthcare

Newsom Healthcare was founded in October 2008 in Horn Lake, Mississippi by Sandra Newsom, MSN, FNP-BC who had a concept for a family clinic that focuses on individualized care for everyone in the community.

Sandra was raised in Mississippi and is dedicated to improving the health and well being of the population. She is motivated by a desire to improve the health knowledge and medical outcomes of her patients and has more than 30 years of combined service experience in education and nursing.

Sandra has participated in programs that provide healthcare to the indigent, uninsured, Medicare and Medicaid populations. She served as Compliance Officer of a Community Health Center where she developed and implemented quality systems that focused on improving the health of patients. For two years Sandra was the sole provider of a clinic for the uninsured of Desoto County.

Listening to the concerns of her patients led Sandra to open Newsom Healthcare where patients in the community could benefit from her genuine concern for health improvement.

Sandra obtained her Master of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Tennessee in Memphis. She is Board Certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner and collaborates with Dr. Ciao Newman and Dr. Brooks Monaghan.

At Newsom Healthcare, our focus is you. We strive to provide a convenient, compassionate, cost effective service that keeps you and your family well.

The major goal of Newsom Healthcare is to provide quality primary and preventive healthcare across the lifespan. We believe in educating patients about health promotion and wellness issues such as diet, exercise, stress management, and disease prevention.
