Lizbeth Martinez joined CHC in 2001 as a Medical Assistant and in 2009 became a Registered Nurse before leaving to obtain her Master of Science in Nursing from Walden University, Minneapolis, MN. She has returned to CHC as a Family Nurse Practitioner certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.
Martinez’s inspiration is fueled by having first-hand experience with family members in the healthcare system. Her passion was further propelled by working with the wonderful doctors at CHC, they were a major part of her decision to become a medical provider serving up quality care. Lizbeth chose CHC as she wanted to be part of a company that would allow her to care for the underserved, underinsured and minorities.
Her personal belief in caring for patients as if they were family members helps her maintain focused treatment and improve health outcomes with a passion for helping people in her community. She further believes taking care of oneself includes taking care of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Away from work she enjoys going for long walks, jogging and serving in her church.
Lizbeth is able to speak fluently with Spanish-speaking patients.
