Caitlin Crotty, DNP, FNP-C, is a board-certified family nurse practitioner who sees patients of all ages at Beebe’s Walk-In Care clinics in Millville, Rehoboth, Millsboro and Georgetown. She focuses on providing evidence-based, patient-centered care for patients across their lifespan.

Crotty earned her bachelor of nursing from Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing in Baltimore, Md., and her doctor of nursing practice, family nurse practitioner degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. She is also a member of the American Nurses Association, Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Theta Tau.

Prior to joining Beebe, Crotty served as a unit charge nurse at Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Atlanta, Ga., where she worked on the neurovascular unit. She began her nursing career at Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she held various positions including clinical nurse extern in the adult emergency department, clinical nurse at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg Children’s Center/Adolescent Care Unit, and float pool nurse in the major mood and eating disorder unit.

“I am proud to be a part of Beebe, and I am personally committed to improving the health of the community in my day-to-day work,” said Crotty.

Johannah Butler, MSN/MPH, RN, FNP-BC, is a board-certified family nurse practitioner who sees patients of all ages at Beebe Primary Care Cape Henlopen. She provides preventative and primary care services including vaccinations, cancer screenings and care for acute and chronic illnesses.

Earlier in her career, she worked in a research laboratory at Children’s Hospital Boston. It was there that Butler developed in interest in chronic illness management, and a desire to help patients diagnosed with conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity. This inspired her decision to pursue a career as a primary care provider, with focus on preventive care.

“I am personally committed to promoting healthy lifestyles and helping patients prevent and manage chronic illness,” said Butler. “I am excited to have the opportunity to improve the health and well-being of individuals and families in Sussex County through my work at Beebe.”

Bowie earned her associate’s degree in nursing from the Community College of Philadelphia, along with a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Drexel University, also in Philadelphia. She went on to complete her master’s in nursing education at Chamberlain College of Nursing in Downers Grove, Ill., followed by adult-gerontology primary care and acute care nurse practitioner post-master’s certificates from Purdue Global University in West Lafayette, Ill. Bowie is a certified adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner and an adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner through the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

Prior to joining Beebe, Bowie served as a hospitalist with Apogee Physicians in Dover, where she cared for medical, surgical and critical care patients.
