Elizabeth Bates is excited to join the team at Fox Chase Pediatrics as a new nurse practitioner.
She completed nursing school at the University of Pennsylvania and worked in the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Emergency Department for a number of years before transitioning to primary care practice.
In pursuit of adventures in the mountains and living closer to family, she moved to Idaho and then back to her home state of Maine with her husband. She recently moved back to Philadelphia and is eager to be part of the Fox Chase Pediatrics community.
As a pediatric nurse practitioner, Elizabeth loves building relationships with her patients and families, and finding kid-friendly ways to provide excellent care. She is also very interested in community and population health and currently taking classes to earn a degree in maternal and child public health.
When not at the clinic, she enjoys being outside, discovering new trails and parks, and cooking and having dance parties in the kitchen with her 1-year-old son and dog.
Next time you are in the office, ask her about the recent mischief of her dog, Hudson; the memorized chocolate chip cookie recipe; the traveling garden gnome in Maine; and family traditions with her three brothers and sisters and eight nieces and nephews.
