Meet Amanda Krantz, FNP-C
Born and raised in nearby Myrtle Point, Amanda Krantz is excited to serve patients at the Coquille Valley Hospital Primary Care Clinic as a family nurse practitioner.
“I’m glad I’ve had the opportunity to move back home and help care for this community that I love,” Amanda says.
After leaving the area for 20 years while her husband served in the United States Air Force, Amanda returns with a unique perspective.
She truly enjoys connecting with her patients – especially those she’s known for years, having grown up in the area. “It’s an honor and a privilege that they choose me to help them obtain their health goals,” she says.
Amanda strives to listen to her patients as they work together to develop a care plan. She considers her role a small one, empowering her patients to take charge of their own health.
“I want my patients to have a positive experience during their appointment. I want them to feel heard and that their opinions and values are respected,” Amanda says. “I try to come up with a treatment plan together, because I know the patient would then be more apt to follow that plan if they have some ownership in that and some accountability.”
She was nominated for three DAISY Awards when she worked in the ER at Houston Methodist Hospital and finished first in her class at Wright State University, earning the Sigma Theta Tau Outstanding Student Award.
In her free time, Amanda enjoys time with her family. She is married to her high school sweetheart, and they have a daughter who attends Coquille High School and participates in sports. They also have two dogs. Amanda loves to cook and to bake, experimenting frequently with new gluten-free recipes.
Motivated and encouraging, she strives to learn more in order to help patients improve their health. “I try to be each patient’s biggest cheerleader and supporter to help them meet their health goals.”
