Health Center Welcomes New Physician Assistant
The Beaver Island Rural Health Center is pleased to announce that Kimberly Elizabeth Wysocki, M.S., PA-C has joined the Center’s medical team as a Physician Assistant. Her appointment was effective Friday, December 2, 2022.
“We are excited that Kim is on board,” said Health Center Managing Director Ann Partridge. Ann added, “Kim’s background and education are a perfect fit for our practice and our community.” Kim is a Board-Certified Physician Assistant with eleven years of practice serving patients in a variety of urban and rural areas across Michigan. Her experience is broad as well as deep, having worked in emergency departments, in surgical orthopedics and sports medicine offices, as well as working for medical groups that emphasized urgent care.
Kimberly Wysocki is now accepting new patients who need family practice care including adults, teenagers and children.
Kim is a graduate of Wayne State University (Michigan) with a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies and a graduate of Oakland University (Michigan), where she earned a Bachelor of General Studies (Magna Cum Laude).
Ms. Wysocki is a native Michigander and has lived and worked in both the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan, including a medical practice that, like the BIRHC, focuses on rural and remote medical care. During the past two years Kim has provided services through the Mackinac Straits Health System in St. Ignace, Michigan, and has traveled throughout Michigan’s upper peninsula performing various in-home services on behalf of Quest Health Connect and their client Blue Cross of Michigan.
