Providence Medical Center is excited to welcome Seabrin L. Jensen, MSN, RN, C-ONQS as the Director of Women’s Services.
Seabrin most recently worked as the Perinatal Outreach Supervisor at Overland Park Regional Medical Center. She created and developed the program to achieve better health outcomes through systematic improvements in health promotion, illness and injury prevention for infants and mothers throughout Missouri and Kansas.
Seabrin has nearly a decade of experience within the world of obstetrics. She started her career as a labor and delivery nurse, saying that it was there she “fell in love with obstetrics.” She then developed the Maternity Navigation program at Overland Park Regional Medical Center.
Seabrin earned her master’s degree in Nursing, Executive Practice in Healthcare Leadership from Research College of Nursing in December of 2020. She earned her Nursing degree from Park University and holds a national certification in Obstetric and Neonatal Quality and Safety. Seabrin is passionate about women’s health and striving for excellence.
She became acquainted with the Providence community in the past few years in her previous role with outreach education.
“I got to know the staff in the labor unit who are such a great group of women and were very welcoming to me,” Seabrin says. “I feel really connected to Providence and its mission to keep health care and its resources in the local community. It’s close to my heart to have resources available for women and children in our communities.”
Seabrin’s role will be focused on growth, development, and delivering the highest level of obstetrics care possible, according to Jennifer Cannon, RN, BSN, MBA, PCCN. “We are excited to welcome her to the Providence family as we continue our tradition of caring for the moms, babies and families in Wyandotte County and surrounding communities,” Cannon says.
Seabrin states that her primary focus will be to expand the program offerings and create a welcoming environment for all. “What I hope for is to create an environment that welcomes all ethnicities, religions and socio-economic backgrounds,” she says. “It’s important that patients are confident in the care they receive and feel supported during their pregnancy journey. I believe Providence Medical Center will not only provide exceptional care and education during her stay but also look to see what resources she needs before leaving our hospital. We want women to be set-up for success as they begin this new and exciting chapter of their lives, and I think we will be the hospital to facilitate that need.”
She adds that she is excited about joining Providence’s Women’s Services to develop and grow the program: “I plan to include additional providers, a midwifery program, prenatal classes, lactation support, and many other services that will be offered for both English and Spanish speaking patients.
A native of Kansas City, Seabrin grew up in Brookside. She is married to Kyle Jensen, a chiropractor who opened Method Chiropractic & Physical Medicine near the Plaza in April. They have two children, ages 5 and 2, which keeps them busy, but when they find the time they enjoy attending First Fridays in the West Bottoms, concerts and spending time with friends.
