Dahl Memorial Welcomes a New Face in the New Year

Members of the community can expect to see a new face when they come to Dahl Memorial – Carla Dowdy, PA-C.  Dahl Memorial has hired Carla as a full-time physician assistant.  She will begin working part-time in January and February of 2016 and full-time in March of 2016.  In doing so, she will be working alongside Dale Diede, PA-C, providing all aspects of healthcare from emergency medicine and primary care to inpatient acute care.

This won’t be the first time that Dale and Carla have worked together, and many people may already know and recognize her.  In many ways she has been a member of this community for years.  Carla spent six weeks working with Dale 12 years ago when she was a PA student. Carla has maintained her connection with Ekalaka mostly due to the fact that she has family living here, but Carla also says that it has become home for her in the past several years.

Carla was born and raised in northeastern Wyoming.  She attended undergraduate college in Chadron, NE, where she also played basketball.  She then went to PA school in Arizona.  In the 11 years she has practiced as a PA, Carla has been an emergency department provider in Phoenix, Arizona and New York City, NY as both a Staff PA and as a Chief PA.  She has extensive experience in both emergency medicine and trauma.  Along with this valuable experience and knowledge Carla possesses a love for this community and the people of Carter County.  When she isn’t in the clinic or hospital seeing patients, one should expect to see Carla helping her parents (Bill and Janet Carlisle) on the ranch or heading to higher ground for hiking, mountain biking, or snowboarding.

Dahl Memorial is very excited to introduce Carla to the community, although many people probably already know her.
