Affordable, high-quality healthcare in Mid-Missouri is the hallmark of Central Ozarks Medical Center. From pediatric to senior care and everything in between, we proudly offer a variety of medical services to meet the needs of every patient across the central Missouri region. Last month, we took the opportunity to introduce you to several of our Mid-Missouri primary care providers who have dedicated their careers to helping our medical center better serve our patients. Today, we're introducing you to the rest of our primary care providers.
Primary Care Providers at COMC

J.J. Jones, DNP, ANP-BC, ACNP-BC
J.J. is board-certified as both an Adult Nurse Practitioner and Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. In 2015, she completed her Doctorate in clinical practice from Missouri State University, focusing on identification and treatment of osteoporosis in the rural internal medicine setting.
J.J. has been in the nursing profession for more than 25 years, with the past 10 as a nurse practitioner. Her nurse practitioner experience has included cardiology, internal, occupational, and hospital medicine.

Ms. Jones maintains active membership with the Missouri Nurses Association, Sigma Theta Tau, Society of Hospital Medicine, Missouri Hospital Association, and the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She recently had an article chosen for publication in the Orthopedic Journal of Nursing and was one of the conference speakers at the National Conference for Nurse Practitioners in May of 2016.
Sara "Ashley" Warren, DO
Dr. Ashley Warren has joined the Central Ozark Medical Center Richland Clinic. She is Board Certified in Family Medicine from the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians. She completed her Residency in Family Medicine at Capital Region Medical Center in Jefferson City, MO, where she was the Chief Resident. During her residency, she also completed a fellowship in Integrative Medicine. Integrative medicine promotes health using both traditional medicine and alternative medicine.
She attended the University of Missouri-Columbia for her undergraduate degrees, receiving a Bachelor's of Science in Biology, Bachelor's of Arts in Sociology and a Honor's Degree.
She completed medical school at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (KCOM) in Kirksville, MO. She has a holistic approach to medicine and helps her patients improve the health of their mind, body and spirit. She enjoys all areas of medicine but considers her passions to be mental health, women's health (gynecology), pediatrics, Osteopathic Manipulation (OMM) and Integrative Medicine.
Dr. Warren is an ally to the LGBTQA community and considers her office a safe place for all people to receive care.
She is the niece of Dr. Barton Warren, another one of our primary care providers. Since deciding to become a physician, returning to practice at her hometown clinic with her uncle has been her goal. She is excited to be back in Richland. Her family has lived in the town since Reconstruction when her great-great-grandfather, Captain H.E. Warren, helped to found the town.
In addition to these excellent providers, we are proud to have two other providers on staff: Dr. David Cathcart, MD and Dr. Barton Warren, MD. We are currently working on organizing their headshots and bios. They will be published on on our website soon.
