March’s Provider of the Month is Dr. Mark Kellam. Dr. Kellam joined the CCMH Medical Staff in 2010 as a Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physician. Originally from Montana where he grew up working on a friend’s farm, Dr. Kellam attended Medical School at the University of Washington and completed his residency at the Detroit Receiving Hospital in Detroit, MI.
Dr. Kellam’s interest in medicine came from the influence of a family friend who was a physician. His desire to help people in acute distress led him into emergency medicine. He has seen the landscape of healthcare change, and despite the challenges that have come along with that, his desire to help patients in the ER remains strong.
Outside of medicine, Dr. Kellam enjoys collecting coins, comics, western memorabilia, guns and other collectables. Mostly he enjoys traveling with his wife of 22 years, especially to places where he can snorkel and dive. He enjoys working where he can be closer to his Montana family and considers CCMH “...one of those secret spots that doctors don’t want too many people to know about,” where he can balance work life with a personal life.
Thank you Dr. Kellam for your contribution to CCMH and our community.
