Dr. Francesca McCaffrey and Dr. Hollie Stewart Receive Board Certification in Pediatrics

GILLETTE, WY – Dr. Francesca McCaffrey and Dr. Hollie Stewart, Campbell County Medical Group Pediatrics, have received Board Certification in Pediatrics from the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). Drs. McCaffrey and Stewart practice at the CCMG Pediatrics clinic, located in the Main Clinic on the south side of the Campbell County Memorial Hospital. Both physicians are accepting new patients.

Board certification is a voluntary process that goes above and beyond state licensing requirements for practicing medicine. It is an ongoing commitment by a physician to continually expand their knowledge in a medical specialty, like pediatrics, or in a subspecialty, such as pediatric hematology/oncology.

Eligible candidates sit for the initial certifying examination of the ABP, the first part of a rigorous
on-going process of assessing the knowledge and skills of a pediatrician to determine if he or she meets the ABP’s standards of excellence. Upon passing this exam, the candidate is awarded the title “Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatrics” and is designated as “board-certified”. Once pediatricians are certified, they must continue to demonstrate learning through a formal Maintenance of Certification program if they want to remain certified.

Pediatricians know about the diseases, symptoms and developmental standards that are specific to children from birth, through adolescence and into adulthood. Maintaining good health and addressing the illnesses and conditions that threaten health often is not the same in children as in adults. There is value, not only in seeing a physician who understands the medical needs of infants, children and adolescents, but who also becomes familiar with children’s growth, development and health patterns. The long-lasting relationship that develops between a child and her or his pediatrician is an important component of their care and wellness.

Founded in 1933, the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) is one of the 24 certifying boards of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). The ABP is an independent, nonprofit organization whose certificate is recognized throughout the world as a credential signifying a high level of physician competence. Learn more at www.abp.org.
