Whitney Groth, FNP
I was raised in Arlington, Texas and began my nursing education at Texas Christian University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I worked at Parkland Hospital in Dallas in the cardiac intensive care unit. After moving to Denver, my experience in surgical and trauma intensive care and work in the emergency department at Denver Health drove my desire to continue my advanced education.
I earned my Masters of Science in Nursing at the University of Colorado, with focus as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Cardiology has been my interest since the beginning of my career, and I joined SDCA in the summer of 2000. I thoroughly love the field of cardiology and it’s ever-evolving therapies, procedures, and treatments, as well as the tried and true preventative arm of diet and exercise.
When I began work at South Denver, I had a 5-month-old boy, and two years later came a little girl. They have provided us with a lot of entertainment over the years, watching their sports, skiing and traveling together when we can. My perspective has changed a bit over the years, starting out as a young mother, now with teenagers and aging parents, but my passion for learning and growing my knowledge base so that I can provide the highest level of care to our patients has not. I look forward to many more rewarding years in this field.
