Head shot of blonde woman with long hairBecky Rick, PA-C is the newest medical staff to join the Emergency Department team. Becky began her career in Minnesota and worked as a Critical Care Flight and Ground Paramedic for North Memorial Health Center in Brainerd. She went on to work as an emergency medicine physician assistant in Onamia for Mille Lacs Health Care, and in Faribault for District One Hospital. Most recently, Becky worked in urgent care, hospital, and emergency department settings in Texas for nearly a decade.

Becky was raised in Indianapolis, IN. Ever since she was a child, she has had a love for medicine and never imagined working in any other field. Becky obtained her bachelor of science degree in physician assistant studies at Des Moines University. She then earned her masters of science degree in PA Emergency Medicine and completed her residency through Alderson Broaddus College and West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV. Becky’s special medical interests are emergency medicine, pediatrics, and cardiology.

She sees every patient as a unique individual, not a symptom or condition. Becky strives to give patients the highest quality, compassionate care she can. She is a strong believer in patient education and has found that the patient who is well-informed regarding their health is more likely to follow through with their treatment plan.

She and her husband wanted to return to rural Minnesota and found Glenwood to be a welcoming and forward-moving community. She liked the team and family atmosphere of Glacial Ridge Health System and felt she could have a positive impact on the hospital and community. Her hobbies include traveling, playing with her dogs, and spending time with her four grown children and eight grandchildren.
