Joy Williams joins Angie Hamilton and staff

Angie Hamilton, family nurse practitioner, and her staff at Horizon Health welcome Joy Williams, APRN, FNP, as a new provider to the dermatology department.

Together, Angie and Joy, who also is a family nurse practitioner, offer comprehensive treatments for diseases and conditions affecting the skin, hair, and nails.

“The addition of Joy will help us meet a growing need for dermatology services in this area, and allow us to bolster our program with additional services in 2019,” Angie said. “I ask everyone to join me in welcoming her to our community.”

Joy became a family nurse practitioner in July 2015. She has been a registered nurse since 2008 and has experience as a dermatology nurse.

“Dermatology is my passion,” Joy said. “We have a great team at Horizon Health and I’m excited to be here.”

Prior to Horizon Health, Joy provided dermatology services for children and adults at a clinic in Olympia, Washington. Her experience includes working as part of a team for a medical weight loss program, and providing primary care for US veterans/active duty personnel in Galesburg, Illinois.

Joy has a master’s degree in nursing from the University of Illinois–Chicago. She has a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Methodist College of Nursing in Peoria and an associate’s of science degree from Illinois Central College in East Peoria.

Joy was raised in Hanna City, Illinois, a small rural community outside Peoria.

“I like rural and small towns. They are often medically underserved and have a higher need for healthcare services, such as dermatology,” Joy explained.

In her spare time, Joy enjoys reading, being outdoors, traveling, and spending time with family, friends, and her dogs.
