GILLETTE, Wyo. — A Gillette native has returned to join Campbell County Medical Group as a physician assistant for the Main Clinic, the healthcare organization announced Sept. 11.
Born and raised in Gillette, Chelsi Krehmeyer, PA-C, says she chose to join CCMG upon completing her coursework out of a desire to live close to family and due to her connection to the community, a Sept. 11 press release states.
“My favorite thing about Gillette [is] the hardworking and down-to-earth people here,” Krehmeyer said in a statement. “I love the Big Horns, the location, and [the] size of our community.”
Armed with a Master of Physician Assistant Studies at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Krehmeyer spent 14 years in family practice and says she’s always had an interest in healthcare and has been fascinated by the intricacies and complexities of the human body since she was a child.
“As soon as I started working in clinics, I realized I enjoyed the relationships I was able to establish with my patients,” Krehmeyer said in a statement. “You get to know your patients on a personal level.”
According to CCMG, Krehmeyer’s dedication to building strong patient relationships provides each individual with personalized care based on their unique needs. She believes in collaborative decision-making and takes a patient-centered approach where every individual actively participates in their treatment journey to foster empowerment and trust.
“I like to come up with a healthcare plan that both my patient and I collaborate and agree on,” Krehmeyer said. “My patients always have a voice in their care plan.”
When not at work, Krehmeyer enjoys exploring the outdoors and spends her summers camping in the Big Horns, seeing new places and taking pictures, CCMG says.
“[CCMG] welcomes [Krehmeyer] to our Main Clinic family,” the healthcare organization said in the release. “Her passion for Gillette, dedication to patient care, and commitment to collaboration bring the Excellence Every Day that our patients expect of Campbell County Health.”
