Stormont Vail Health is proud to announce that Benton McGivern, M.D., is joining our team to practice as a hospitalist physician, located at Stormont Vail Hospital, 1500 S.W. 10th Ave., Topeka, Kan., 66604.
Dr. McGivern was inspired to join the medical field after watching a friend recover following an injury. The physician treating his friend instilled a passion within Dr. McGivern to learn about medicine and the human. This passion would eventually take him to medical school and his residency.
“Hospital medicine provides me a unique experience to take care of people in their most vulnerable time,” said Dr. McGivern. “I really enjoy patient interactions, and getting to sit down and generate a plan with them that will lead them to a healthier life going forward.”
Dr. Benton McGivern graduated from Kansas State University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in kinesiology and a minor in biology. He later went on to receive his doctorate of medicine in 2018 from the Kansas University School of Medicine, Kansas City, Kan.
