Olivia Caldwell Foundation prepares for new specialist to join pediatric clinic
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - This month is the first time the Olivia Caldwell Pediatric Clinic will host a gastroenterologist. On May 9 and 10, Dr. Walker will be joining the Pediatric Specialty Clinic to provide quarterly services to children in Wyoming.
The Olivia Caldwell Foundation partnered with Children’s Hospital Colorado and the Wyoming Medical Center to create the Pediatric Specialty Outreach Clinic in 2019. Through the clinic, children can receive the care they need closer to home.
“There’s such a huge need for it here locally, and for kids to be able to see their provider here is a big deal... We actually started the clinic just a couple of months before Covid took over the world so it’s been slow, but we’re thrilled that Dr. Walker will be able to see kids here,” said Olivia Caldwell Foundation Founder Katie Caldwell-Burchett.
Currently, the clinic has specialists in cardiology, pulmonology, endocrinology, and now gastroenterology that visit Casper. Appointments are required to meet with any of the specialists.
