Harris Regional Hospital is expanding access for pulmonary care with the addition of nurse practitioners Christine Kryger and Leslie Morris.

Morris and Kryger bring a combined 20 years of clinical experience.

“Both Leslie and Christine have experience in treating a range of patients and health conditions, and will be an excellent addition to our hospital team,” said Steve Heatherly, Harris Regional CEO. “Pulmonology conditions are an increasing concern in our region, and our new providers’ expertise will be important as Harris Regional Hospital strives to meet our region’s evolving healthcare needs and make our community healthier.”

Morris practiced at Pardee Hospital in Hendersonville as a nurse practitioner with Carolina Lung and Sleep. She worked previously as a registered nurse with Mission Health. Morris received her doctor of nursing practice/family nurse practitioner accreditation from East Tennessee State University, and is a member of the American Nurses Association.

Kryger worked at Gwinnett Infectious Disease Consultants in Georgia. She previously served as a registered nurse in Asheville and in the intensive care unit at Harris Regional, among other health-care providers. Kryger received her master of science in nursing, adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner from Walden University, an online university headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
