I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being...

Krystal Hughson

Welcome Krystal Hughson! We have another new face joining Des Moines River Physicians– welcome Krystal to the team. She is the new Practice Coordinator for our group.

Krystal’s path to Mercy. She grew up in Newton, but lived in Des Moines while she attended Grand View University. After graduating from college, she married her husband. They have been married for 6 years but have been a part of each other lives for 11 years. They eventually decided to move back to Newton to be closer to family.

In October 2015 she fortunately applied for a practice coordinator position at Skiff Medical Center, in Newton. She has really enjoyed her job and the people she has met.  This April she was offered a full time position as the Practice coordinator for Mercy Main, Mercy West Lakes and Skiff.

Krystal’s interests. “I am a mom to 3 kids ages 15, 9 and 5. They keep most of my evenings full with tennis, soccer, swimming and much more.  When I'm kid free I attend concerts, movies, and the races at the Iowa Speedway in Newton.”

Candy favorites? Reese's Peanut butter cups and Snickers.
