Health Clinic Welcomes Rob Quade

My name is Rob Quade and I am one of the newest members to the Sokaogon Chippewa Health Clinic’s medical team as the nursing supervisor.

I am a Tribal Member, and grew up in Crandon, but resided off reservation. I moved to Connecticut when I was 16 years old, but it was 14 years ago when I wanted to help as many people as possible so I went to nursing school.

I met my wife Patrycja, studying in the library and ended up getting married when I completed nursing school as a registered nurse (RN) with a Bachelor of Science (BSN) degree.

We have four beautiful children now, and decided to move to Crandon five years ago to raise them with good values and morals in this beautiful area.

For the last three years I have been a travel nurse and I mainly traveled in upper Wisconsin as a critical care nurse. I am currently finishing up my last contract as a travel nurse at Marshfield Clinic (St. Joe’s Hospital) on the cardiac floor. I will be helping at the Sokaogon Chippewa Health Clinic part time until August, at which time I will transition to a full time employee. It is of great pleasure to serve the community and to help the people of this area.
