 Jennifer Johnson, MSN, FNP-BC was born in in Ft. Myers, FL. She grew up in Clewiston and moved to Moore Haven in 2018 to establish roots with her husband and lifelong Glades County resident Tim Johnson.  She fell in love with the community and quickly realized the need for a medical facility to help the residents of Glades County and cut down on commute to surrounding counties for medical care.  As her slogan states, she is anchored and committed: to the community and to providing the best care to each and every patient she treats.

Glades County and the City of Moore Haven have needed such a facility and are excited about the benefits it will bring to its residents and the surrounding areas.  Johnson Riverside Family Practice opened Monday, July 25, 2022 and is planning a GRAND OPENING for the entire community in the upcoming months, stay tuned for the date to be announced.
