Jesse Powell, PA-C – Gastroenterology and Hepatology Clinic

“Working here reminds me of my training up north in rural health – which sounds funny on the surface. We think of Hennepin Healthcare as this big institution that sees lots of patients, and we do, but in comparison to other health systems around the city, we’re small. I see patients on the light rail and chat with them. They’re my neighbors. I might see them at a local restaurant. We have a valuable connection to the community that you won’t get elsewhere. You get that small-town feeling if you’ve been here for a while, especially if you live in the city like I do.”
