Grayson Home Health of Oklahoma has a core staff of employees that are the foundation of our company and help fulfill our mission and vision every day.
In addition to our core staff, we have several part-time and PRN employees to help us serve the multiple counties in which we provide services. We feel it is important to have field staff that live in or near the same communities that our patients reside in so that we are always available to them in a timely manner. This is another way that Grayson Home Health strives to provide the highest quality care available in Southern Oklahoma.

Kat Studer RN, OCN Administrator
Kat is a registered nurse with 14 years of experience in Home Health, Oncology certification, 20 years management experience and 37 years nursing experience, including acute care, med-surg and ER experience.
She has been in administration for Grayson Home Health since it opened in Durant in 2007. Kat not only serves as Administrator, but also continues to provide nursing care to the patients. Kat attributes her passion for nursing with a need to give back to her community.
“There is a need in our communities to take care of our sick and less fortunate. When you see someone in their own surroundings, you are able to recognize needs that are sometimes missed. Home health nursing has opened my eyes to the needs of people who are often alone, unable to drive anymore, uneducated about their medical conditions and as a result financially stressed. Our agency is committed to meeting the medical needs of our patients as well as the psychosocial issues they may have. Grayson Home Health has a team of compassionate, dedicated staff that are committed to providing the best possible care to our patients.”
