RUSHVILLE — Rush Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce the addition of Tai Morrell, family nurse practitioner, to its family practice group. Born and raised in Rush County by parents Dr. Doug and Juya Morrell, Tai returns home by joining the staff and doctors at RMH Healthcare Associates. “During my clinical rotations I realized that I was most content practicing nursing in rural areas. It is in the small communities that you have the opportunity to make the most impact because you have the time to get to know people as individuals and develop lasting, meaningful relationships,” said Morrell. “As an adult, I now realize how Rush County has influenced me and my career in a positive way. After traveling to multiple places throughout the world and living in cities of various sizes, I have decided to return home to practice the art of nursing and make a difference in patients’ lives as well as impacting the future of Rush County by being a part of the community.”

A graduate of the Indiana School of Nursing, Bloomington, she received her Masters of Science in Nursing from Indiana University in 2010, and completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2006 from Loyola University, Chicago.  

“We are very excited to have Tai joining our physician practice group (RMH Healthcare Associates),” said RMH president and CEO Brad Smith. “It’s a positive move for our community to have individuals return to their hometown to live and to work. Tai is already doing very well in the practice and patients are requesting her by name.”
