Lake Regional Health System is pleased to welcome Craig Eden, FNP-BC, to Lake Regional Express Care – Lebanon.

“Craig is an experienced health care provider,” said Rachel Bailey, manager of Lake Regional Express Care – Lebanon and Lake Regional Clinic - Lebanon. “He educates his patients and helps them understand their treatment plans. We are thankful that he has chosen to care for patients at Lake Regional.”

Eden earned a Master of Science in Nursing - Family Nurse Practitioner at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri. Before becoming a nurse practitioner, he cared for heart and ICU patients as a registered nurse, and he served 11 years as a firefighter and EMT. He also has served as an adjunct clinical nursing instructor at the Mercy College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri.

Eden is looking forward to caring for Express Care patients, who need care for urgent but non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries.

“One of my goals is not only to continue to help people through challenging health issues but also to find ways to prevent serious illness and help people to live healthier and happier lives,” he said. “I feel that excellent communication leads to good outcomes, and the key to excellent communication is careful listening.”

Eden has spent most of his life in the Springfield, Missouri, area. His wife, Kristen, is a registered nurse, and they have three daughters and one son-in-law. Their family enjoys traveling and being outdoors as much as possible.

Lake Regional Express Care has walk-in locations in Camdenton, Eldon and Lebanon. Conditions treated include infections, allergies, cuts, sprains and other issues that need medical attention but do not require an emergency response. See hours at
