Drs. Stephen and
Katie Houmes met in their second year of medical school at the University of
Washington. Both received their medical degrees from the University of
Washington and completed their respective residencies at the University
of Arizona in Tucson. They participated in the WWAMI program, which provides
educational opportunities for students from states like Wyoming that don’t
have medical schools.
Katie is from Star Valley, Wyoming and always wanted to come back to practice
in her home state. They were very impressed by the Campbell County Health's
welcoming and friendly community and their dedication to up-to-date and
best practice patient care. They choose Gillette over several other places
throughout Wyoming and are ecstatic to be joining the hospital. Their
medical school provided good training on how to involve patients in decisions
about their care and the importance of a team approach, philosophies that
they’ll bring with them to CCH.
Both Steve and Katie enjoy biking, hiking and skiing and have had the opportunity
to visit the Bighorns several times while waiting for their belongings
to arrive from Arizona.
