Congratulations to Dr. Blanca Osorio, the November/December Provider of the Month.
Dr. Osorio is a Board Certified Psychiatrist who joined the medical staff in 2014. She came to Gillette on what she thought would be a temporary assignment in October 2013, and has since made her home here with her husband Victor and two children, Keanu and Victoria. Her grown son Angel lives in Louisiana.
Dr. Osorio attended medical school in Puerto Rico, and completed a residency in Adult Psychiatry and a fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, HI. Dr. Osorio continued her military service with the United States Army at Fort Polk, LA. She earned her combat badge by serving in Iraq and Kuwait in 2011-2012, and witnessed the last troop convey leaving Iraq in 2012.
Dr. Osorio recalls wanting to be a doctor since the age of six, and remembers being fascinated by the men and women in white coats who took care of people. It took her eight years to be able to attend medical school—one of her jobs during this period was as a waitress. She considers herself lucky to be able to find and fulfill her calling.
Dr. Osorio sees patients in Behavioral Health Services at Campbell County Health, with a goal to help them reach their best level of function using medication, group therapy and access to community resources. She believes that her patients here are motivated to get better.
Thank you Dr. Osorio, for providing our patients with excellent care.
