The halls of Craig's Valley Health Center are much different than a refugee camp in Africa, however, Dr. Kathleen "K.C." Keating applies her medical philosophy equally in both places.
"I like the emphasis on giving care to everyone, and I really want that interaction with the patient," Keating said.
The new OB/GYN joined Dr. Scott Ellis at Valley Health Center in The Memorial Hospital, fresh out of her residency at St. Joseph Hospital in Denver.
Keating attended Beloit College in Wisconsin for her undergraduate degree. She then traveled abroad to Uganda to study rural health care and infectious diseases.
It was there she realized she didn't want to go into just any kind of public health care.
