Horizon Health Expands Urology Service

Horizon Health announces the addition of Melissa Thomas, certified urology nurse practitioner, to its urology team.

The Horizon Health urology team diagnoses and treats conditions that affect the male and female urinary tract, as well as the male reproductive organs. It provides surgical and non-surgical solutions for kidney/bladder stones and cancers, urinary tract infections, overactive bladder, enlarged prostate, chronic pelvic pain, and more.

Melissa joined Horizon Health in 2021 as a cardiology provider. She has more than 24 years of clinical experience, nine of those years as a urology nurse practitioner. Her background includes convenient care clinics and critical care units.

“I’m excited to be back in my area of expertise,” Melissa said. “There is a big need for urology services in our communities, and it involves more than kidney stones and urinary tract infections. People need care for incontinence and so many other conditions.”

Prior to Horizon Health, Melissa worked in various nursing roles in Terre Haute. She earned her master’s degree and bachelor’s degree in nursing at Indiana Wesleyan University. She also completed nursing education at Lincoln Trail College and Ivy Tech Community College.

Melissa was born and raised in Terre Haute. She resides in Brazil, Indiana, with her husband, Andrew. They have four children and six grandchildren. In her free time, Melissa enjoys crafting, gardening, fishing, traveling, and spending time with family.
