Hagerstown – Family Healthcare of Hagerstown is pleased to announce the addition of Mr. Christopher Bennett, MSN, CRNP-PMH, to the practice. He will join a team of mental health professionals that serve Family Practice patients at the 201 S. Cleveland Avenue location.
Mr. Bennett is a Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner – Psychiatric Mental Health (CRNP-PMH). His credentials allow him to diagnose, provide therapy, and prescribe medications in multiple mental health settings. He was awarded his Master of Science Degree in Nursing from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (2009) and he earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Belmont University in Nashville (2007). He also holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Work from the University of Tennessee (2004).
Mr. Bennett has provided somatic or psychiatric care for 14 years, the last 5 years in Maryland. He has cared for people of all ages and in many settings including inpatient, outpatient, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities. His approach, he states, is a holistic one – one that may include medication but also addresses a person’s lifestyle and diet.
Ms. Kim Murdaugh, Executive Director, is enthusiastic about Mr. Bennett’s arrival and approach to care. “The addition of Mr. Bennett to our team will allow us to expand much needed mental health care to our patients and ultimately, the larger community. Mental health care, family practice, and dental care at one location is more than a convenience. It enables us to reduce barriers and treat the whole patient.”
