Fred Hamlin, APRN, Joins CHI Saint Joseph Medical Group – Cardiology

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (Jan. 31, 2023) – CHI Saint Joseph Medical Group – Cardiology welcomes Fred Hamlin, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, to its practice at Saint Joseph Jessamine and in Lebanon. Hamlin, originally from McCreary County, brings more than two decades of professional experience to the health care group and even more years of passion, as his love for the medical field, especially the heart, started at age 5.

“The heart and its inner workings have always been an interest of mine since I was very young,” said Hamlin. “I’ve always been fascinated by its plumbing, electricity, and structure. There’s so much that goes into caring for the heart.”

Hamlin’s love for the medical field heightened in high school when his father became seriously ill. During that time, he watched his mother care for his father at home, much like a nurse would do. Hamlin saw how significantly this care impacted his father’s life and how working in the health care field could help others.

“I felt like that was a calling from God to pursue a career in nursing,” said Hamlin.

Hamlin graduated from Morehead State University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. He cared for patients from the bedside and in the sky; Hamlin was a flight nurse with the Air Evac Lifeteam for four years. Hamlin then went back to school to pursue his Master of Science in Nursing at Indiana State University to enhance his education and training. Hamlin has continued his work in his home state of Kentucky and has kept his childhood dream alive, focusing on caring for his patients’ cardiovascular health.

“I want my patients to be involved in their care and take ownership of their care so that we can work together on enhancing their quality of life,” said Hamlin. “I like to prevent as many problems as possible, from heart disease to organ damage from high blood pressure, cholesterol, and kidney disease. I want to work with my patients to get them the necessary resources they need to achieve optimal health goals.”

Hamlin is a board-certified nurse practitioner by the American Nurse Credentialing Center (ANCC). He is also board certified in basic life support, advanced cardiac life support, and pediatric advanced life support.

In his spare time, Hamlin enjoys spending time with his wife, an ER/ICU nurse, and their three sons. He also enjoys playing the piano, hiking, attending church, and constantly learning more about his field.

Hamlin is practicing at CHI Saint Joseph Medical Group – Cardiology at Saint Joseph Jessamine, located at 1250 Keene Road, Suite 102, and CHI Saint Joseph Medical Group – Cardiology in Lebanon, located at 325 Walnut Street, Suite 300. To make an appointment, please call 859.276.4429.
