About Us

At Northland Family Care your health is our primary concern.

Founded in 1935 by Dr. Glenn Hendren and continued on by the late Dr. Richard Bowles, Northland Family Care has been serving Liberty and the surrounding area for 77 years; we have a deep commitment to our patients and our community. Our practice provides a full spectrum of quality healthcare for your entire family, newborn to elderly.

As our Northland community continues to expand, so does our family of service-oriented medical and administrative professionals. Our staff currently includes two board-certified physicians and three nurse practitioners, as well as a comprehensive nursing staff consisting of RN’s, LPN’s and medical assistants.

Northland Family Care is one of few remaining independent practices that also provide hospital inpatient care. All of our physicians see inpatients at Liberty hospital, ensuring continuity of care and peace of mind for our patients and their families.

Family Medicine is the foundation for you, your family and your community’s health care needs. In addition to treating illnesses, we also provide preventative care services. Furthermore, your Family Medicine provider will help you coordinate care when specialist providers are needed.

We look forward to serving your health care needs, and those of your family. Please call us today at 816-781-4740 to schedule your appointment.


Announcing our New Patient Portal!

Your time is valuable and we understand that. We have introduced the Northland Family Patient Portal to improve communications and streamline the processes that are important to our patients. Facilitated by a private and secure online entity that exceeds HIPPA security standards, the portal provides easy access to a number of convenient features including appointment scheduling, medication refills, lab order requests and more. The portal also provides a means for communicating non-urgent medical information to your care provider. At Northland Family Care we understand how important clear communication and accessibility are to our patients. We are excited to introduce the Patient Portal as an important tool for facilitating efficient and effective interactions between you and our office. Please visit our Forms/Policies page to learn more about the Patient Portal or Click Here to begin your Patient Portal experience. We look forward to connecting with you online!
