Catherine Compton, a certified nurse practitioner (CNP), who has been caring for patients at Winona Health’s Urgent Care clinic since 2012, has transferred to Winona Health’s Plastic, Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery department and works with plastic, reconstructive and hand surgeon, Hans Serleth, MD.

Compton chose Winona Health back in 2012 because, “This is a great community, and I like Winona Health because everyone works together. It’s not a hierarchy–there’s teamwork.”

“I am excited about this opportunity to help offer services previously not here,” said Compton. “I love the diversity of the specialty. For example, I’m working with patients who have had breast reconstruction after mastectomy due to breast cancer; who may need assistance with returning to work after a hand injury; or who are having cosmetic procedures like tummy tucks, eye lifts or laser treatments.”

Compton has more than 15 years of healthcare experience including providing urgent care and primary care services for families in several communities including Winona, Onalaska, Beaver Dam and Milwaukee Wis. She earned a Master of Nursing degree at Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wis. and graduated Suma Cum Laude.

In her free time, Compton enjoys participating in various run/walk opportunities in the area that raise money and awareness for various health issues in the community. She and her husband live in the Winona area and have two school-aged children.
