Welcome Our New ENT Specialist, Carissa Horton, MPAS, PA-C

Clay County Medical Center is pleased to welcome Carissa Horton, MPAS, PA-C specializing in ear, nose and throat conditions, to our Specialty Clinic! Carissa practices at Inspire ENT and Pulmonology in Manhattan, and will see patients in Clay Center on the first and third Friday’s of each month.

Carissa completed her Master of Physician Assistant Studies from Des Moines University in 2004, and her Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from Kansas State University in 2002. She is originally from Marysville, KS and has been living in Junction City, KS with her husband Scott and their sons Aiden and Logan for the past 16 years.

Carissa first became interested in the medical field after working in a nursing home in high school and then getting her EMT license from MATC while attending Kansas State. She loves helping people in any capacity, and thinks there is no better way to help someone than to make them feel better and keep them healthy. Carissa said she looks forward to working at Clay County Medical Center after hearing many great things about the team and the community.
