The American Health Council has warmly welcomed Dr. Malinda Ellis, MD, to its prestigious Physician Board. Amassing over a decade of service to the profession, Dr. Ellis, from Kansas City, Missouri, has gained significant expertise in Patient and Family Education, Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine.
Dr. Ellis became involved in her profession after being inspired by her mother who was a physician. At first, she rebelled against the idea of joining the medical field and majored in engineering while studying for her undergrad. When Dr. Ellis entered medical school, she found she enjoyed the intimacy of the physician-patient experience and she loved the difference she could make in her patients’ lives.
After completing her MD in 2007 at Duke University, Dr. Ellis embarked on a successful career in healthcare which has culminated in her most recent role as Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine Physician at Envision Healthcare, a position she has upheld for over a year.
Physician-led Envision Healthcare is among the nation’s largest and most respected employers of clinical personnel. Their family includes more than 35,000 skilled and caring men and women working in the areas of Public Health, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, Healthcare Systems, Community and Government.
Looking back at her career to date, Dr. Ellis attributes her success to the traumatic experiences she had while pregnant. This put things into perspective for her and later, she was able to appreciate this difficult time in her life. Additionally, she is proud to know that her patient and colleagues respect her as a physician.
As an active member of the American Association of Family Physicians and Tau Beta Pi, Dr. Ellis’ goals within the next five years include continuing to grow and make a difference in people’s lives. She is also working towards achieving a better work life balance.
In her free time, Dr. Ellis enjoys traveling, arts and crafts, and crocheting.
