Katherine Newland Barton, MD

Emergency Medicine physician, mom, spirited life adventurer


I am a board-certified Emergency physician with over 20 years’ clinical experience.

Currently working as medical director and attending physician in emergency medicine, our hospital’s wound care/hyperbarics clinic, and also at our community plasma center. I concurrently precept medical students which has brought a new level of career and personal satisfaction.

Career experience is widely-varied  in addition to traditional physician services, serving in leadership roles throughout my educational and professional endeavors. These experiences include multiple medical director and administrative roles, medical-legal consulting, advisor to startups, telemedicine, hospital media liaison, screenplay script consultant, grassroots advocacy organizer, business consultant and quality/peer review services.

Life before medicine included dancing for the University of Notre Dame and 2 years in improvisational theater in Chicago, with the Second City student program. I draw on these experiences more than one might imagine. Almost daily.

Thank you for viewing my profile. As a lifelong learner I seek to constantly add skills, expertise, and new endeavors. I have an entrepreneurial and adventurous spirit, and yet I am somehow also highly analytical. Go figure. My strategic mindset and critical thinking skills draw complements, as do my dance moves. I am here to serve and help others achieve their goals in a focused, energetic and joyful manner. Please contact me if I can be of assistance to you.
