SGCMH welcomes pediatrician to Bloomsdale Medical Centre
Dr. Kelli Boelens, MD is now on staff at Bloomsdale Family Health Care. Dr. Boelens is accepting new patients and she is excited about being part of the community and working in a rural area.
“I grew up in a small town on a farm in northern, Illinois. I was always interested in medicine, loved science and being around kids. So I put all of those things together and decided to pursue pediatrics,” commented Boelens. “Ultimately, my goal was to practice medicine in a small town.”
Dr. Boelens trained at St. Louis Children’s Hospital which is affiliated with Washington University. “It was an experience that I absolutely loved,” said Dr. Boelens. “I’ve had the privilege to work with some amazing specialists.”
When she visited Ste. Genevieve she was quite amazed and fell in love with charm of the Bloomsdale office and the town. “I was very impressed and loved the energy there and every one I met,” stated Boelens. “And, I love how everything is located in one building which makes it easier for patients.”
Dr. Boelens received her medical degree at the American University of the Caribbean.
