GILLETTE, Wyo. — Campbell County Health’s newly created Geriatric Clinic has a new addition — Geriatrician Dr. Leslie McLean, the healthcare organization announced Tuesday. 

Born and raised in California, just south of Fresno, McLean is a highly skilled and compassionate doctor who brings a wealth of experience and passion for providing care to individuals with complex medical illnesses, CCH said in a July 11 release. 

McLean received her MD from the University of Colorado and completed her residency at the Shasta-Cascade Family Practice Residency Program in Redding, California. 

Throughout her career, McLean has been able to practice medicine in various locations, most recently in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She’s always had a fondness for the warmth and close-knit nature of smaller communities and chose to join CCH, a decision driven in part by her desire to be close to her daughter while embracing the small-town atmosphere as she continues her medical career, CCH says. 

As a geriatrician, McLean says she finds fulfillment in developing meaningful relationships with her patients while taking a holistic approach to help them make their own choices.

“I love the relationships I can build with patients,” McLean said in the release. “It’s not just about their medical problems; it’s about learning who they are as a person.”

Her approach is about recognizing the importance of addressing her patients’ physical, psychosocial and spiritual well-being, per CCH, which says McLean is committed to understanding each individual’s unique needs.

“Campbell County Medical Group is excited to welcome Dr. Leslie McLean and announce the creation of the Geriatric Clinic,” CCH said in the release. “Her expertise and commitment to comprehensive care are exactly the Excellence Every Day we want to provide our patients.”
