Dr. James Griggs Joins Campbell County Health

A calming presence while addressing urgent needs

GILLETTE, Wyo. – Oct. 25, 2022 – Dr. James Griggs joined Campbell County Health near the end of September as the Walk-in Clinic’s newest provider. According to Dr. Griggs, he and his family relocated to Gillette from Florida – a move long in the making.

“I kind of just fell in love with the area about a decade ago, and until now never had the opportunity to get back out here [Wyoming],” said Dr. Griggs. “My wife enjoys having a change of seasons here, and I love the open plains of the area.”

Dr. Griggs always had an interest in medicine growing up – though, in college, he focused on engineering and math. Through some reflection and exploration, eventually, he took courses in first responder medicine to train as an EMT. These experiences were profound for Dr.Griggs – so much so that he decided to go all in and pursue an MD. Like many other providers, Dr. Griggs wanted a human connection in his work. He also wanted a direct tangible impact to his work. These things drove him towards medicine and away from traditional STEM careers he had considered.

“The human element is what brings more uniqueness to it,” said Dr.Griggs. “You get the opportunity to genuinely connect with folks – something I realized I needed to have in my career.”

Dr. Griggs was drawn towards urgent care due to his first responder coursework background in his earlier years. In particular, he enjoys constantly being able to meet new people in his role. Dr. Griggs finds it rewarding to be a calming presence to patients who can often be confused, frightened, and concerned when they are in a situation requiring urgent care.

Originally from Ocala, Florida, Dr. Griggs completed medical school at the Ross University School of Medicine in the Commonwealth of Dominica and his family medicine residency at Grant Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio.

Outside of work, Dr.Griggs has various interests and hobbies. Bowling, golf, archery, music, gaming, and anything else hands-on that can keep Dr.Griggs busy find their way into the time he spends outside work.

We are excited to welcome Dr. Griggs to the community, and to CCH. We are proud to have such a dedicated urgent care physician caring for our community in the Walk-in Clinic.
