New doctor treats PSU students

The new doctor on the Pittsburg State University campus is actually a former student. Steve Erwin, associate vice president for campus life and auxiliary services at PSU, announced this week that Dr. Donald Holsinger had been appointed interim medial director for the university's student health center. Holsinger replaces Dr. David Parris, who has returned to private practice after serving the university for more than two years.

Holsinger, who received his undergraduate degree from PSU in 1960 and his medical degree from the University of Kansas, had a private practice in internal medicine in Pittsburg for 33 years. Recently, he has served as the chief medical officer and vice president for medical affairs at Mount Carmel Regional Medical Center.

Erwin also announced that Rita Girth, previously assistant director of the health center, has assumed the role of interim operational director. As such, Girth will be responsible for all aspects of the operation of the facility, supervision of the administrative staff of the Student Health Center, and the business and administrative operations for the unit.

Girth is a registered nurse with 22 years of experience. She joined PSU's Student Health Services in 1990 and was promoted to assistant director in 2000.

The Pittsburg State University Student Health Center provides a wide range of health services for students. It is located at 1801 S. Joplin St. on the PSU campus.
