Kaitlen Baker, M.D.


Kaitlen Baker, M.D., cares for patients at Lake Regional Hospital. As a hospitalist, she focuses exclusively on providing and coordinating care for hospitalized patients. She follows patients' tests and treatments while they are in Lake Regional Hospital and then, when patients are discharged, she transitions their care to their regular providers. She does not have office hours.

Originally from a rural area near Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Dr. Baker said seeing a need for doctors motivated her to pursue medical school.

“Seeing that people didn’t have access to medical care — or only limited options — helped me realize there was a small role I could fill to help people,” she said. “My grandma also was a big motivation. She has passed now, but she believed I would grow up to help someone else’s mom and grandma one day.”

In caring for hospitalized patients, Dr. Baker said open communication is critical to good care.

“If we inform patients and their families about their care and why something is happening, it helps alleviate a lot of stress,” she said.

Dr. Baker joined Lake Regional's hospitalist team in 2022.
