About Christy Cook


Christy started her nursing career at SoutheastHEALTH in 1991 and now returns as a women's health nurse practitioner. With over 20 years’ experience caring for the women in this area, Christy has always enjoyed helping people. She is happy to have the opportunity to assist in caring for women of all ages and to deliver the same quality of care that is well-known at SoutheastHEALTH. Christy is proud to be a part of Cape Girardeau's healthcare hub, adding that southeast Missouri is a wonderful place to live, work and, when time allows, enjoy golfing, camping and traveling with her husband and two adult daughters.
