Family Health Care Expands Medical Providers in Baldwin
BALDWIN– Family Health Care is pleased to announce Jennifer Strahan, RN, FNP-BC, has joined its office at 1615 Michigan Avenue in Baldwin. She is the second provider to join the Baldwin medical team in the last two months, with Matt Steel, PA-C, starting in late September.
The Baldwin facility also has a complement of primary care physicians that include Dr. Daniel Bow, internal medicine; Dr. Claudia Schroeder, ER and general family care; Dr. Daniel Gilligan, general adult health; Doni Simon, NP, specializing in adult health; Sharon Brenner, NP, specializing in pediatrics. Dr. Dannie Gentry, and Michelle Gentry, FNP, also provide OB/GYN services one day a week.
Together, this team of nine medical providers is ensuring services are available for everyone, day or night, evenings and Saturdays.
The addition of Jennifer Strahan to the team ensures that there is ample access every day. With growing demands for walk-in for acute care needs, as well as care for chronic illness, the organization is focused on ensuring that the medical staff has the needed expertise and experience to handle most anything that walks through the door.
People in the area want medical care delivered by a person, not necessarily a computer. The health center offers that choice since medical care is more complicated and deserves a comprehensive approach. The organization is striving to ensure that care is not fragmented and individuals are served with quality, affordable services. The health center recently renovated its Baldwin location to include pharmacy, lab and radiology (ultrasound and mammography) services to further enhance the health impact on the community. The complement of nine primary health care providers ensures that individuals who need services in Lake County receive them.
Ms. Strahan completed her Bachelors of Science in Nursing at Daemen College in Amherst, New York, and her Master of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner at D’Youville College in Buffalo, New York. She also has over five years of experience as an emergency room RN with expertise in pediatrics, women’s health and adult care.
“I really want to make a difference in the care of patients,” said Ms. Strahan. “I am excited to be part of the patient-centered team at Family Health Care in Baldwin, and look forward to expanding access to the community through acute walk-in care and by offering ongoing medical care for all ages.” In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and three children.
For the past 50 years, Family Health Care has focused on meeting the needs of its communities by growing and expanding services to provide rural residents and visitors to the area with quality affordable access to medical, dental, vision, pharmacy, behavioral health, laboratory and radiology services close to where they live, work and play.

The clinic is open Monday and Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Medical, lab and pharmacy services are open for extended hours to provide care for community members and visitors with medical issues.
