Eric Flores, PA-C, Co-founder

Eric graduated from Wichita State University Physician Assistant Program in 1998. He went on to work at Neosho Memorial Regional Medical Center ER in SE Kansas with a census of over 10,000 visits per year for 17 years. While working full-time in the ER, he also gained experience in Urgent Care, Fast Track and ER at Wesley Medical Center. The he shifted gears to worked with Trauma/Critical Care Team at their Level 1 trauma center learning the other side of sending trauma patients and management of those critical patients. But ER medicine pulled him back and went on to Ascension/Via Christi at St Francis and St Joseph campus working along side ER physicians in high volume Emergency Departments. But he just couldn’t leave the rural and semi-rural settings, feeling a sense of responsibility and service to bring as much as he could offer facilities with less resources. He also started doing locum tenem work in SW Kansas in 2008 at a rural health clinic, hospital with attached LTCU and ER. This is where his passion for providing consistent quality, compassionate, evidence based medicine grew. He felt the pull each time he left and returned to offer these communities more than just a provider to cover the shift, he wanted the same level of care he would expect for his family living in this same community. Dr O’Donnell and Eric were friends, lived in the same Kansas town, would attend their daughter’s basketball games and would trade ER stories and realized there was a need and shared calling to offer more. Eric was a clinical preceptor for PA students from Wichita State for over 17 years, was named Preceptor of the Year in 2004 and 2013, this relationship help mentor and develop some of the finest PAs around the state. Dr O’Donnell also had an instrumental role in mentoring and teaching PAs, residents and medical students rotating and working along side him. It only made sense to organize their own medical staffing company with exceptional providers they knew and trusted to reach those seeking optimal healthcare from competent, compassionate health care providers and Integrity was born.

Eric is married to Kimberly, they have 6 children combined and love each and every opportunity they have to spend quality family time together. 

When he isn’t with family Eric enjoys going to the gym, grilling, cooking, fishing and boating. He and Kimberly love to travel and explore new hikes and outdoor adventures.
