ROCK SPRINGS — Sweetwater Walk-In Clinic has added a second provider and expanded its hours.
Kati Moczulski, a certified family nurse practitioner, will join Physician’s Assistant Brian Barton at the 3000 College Drive clinic. This will enable the clinic team to expand its operating hours to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
“I have worked with Brian for about a year and a half,” Moczulski said. “I understand the importance of what Sweetwater Walk-In offers the community.”
The walk-in clinic is for health issues requiring urgent medical attention such as falls, urinary trac infections, congestive heart failure (CHF) exacerbations, diabetic issues, and general illness.
Outpatient lab services also are now available during regular clinic hours. Barton and Moczulski can care for a wide range of health issues including, but not limited to, lacerations, headaches, dehydration, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, general abdominal pain, muscle pain, body aches, ear pain, and fevers. They also provide well-child exams, general physical exams and sports physicals.
“I like the variety,” Moczulski said. “I like to see and experience new things. It builds the knowledge base. That base helps link different health issues to better understand the patient and care for their needs.”
Working in several nursing positions at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County since 2011, Moczulski has the wide background of knowledge that’s needed as a walk-in clinic provider.
She has worked as a nurse at Sweetwater Walk-In Clinic, but also in outpatient case management, chronic care management, home care, pulmonology, family medicine, behavioral health, internal medicine, nephrology, ENT, surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics, emergency room, intensive care unit, medical/surgical unit, and other service and clinic areas.
Moczulski has Associate of Science degrees in General Studies in Science from Laramie County Community College and in Nursing from Western Wyoming Community College. She received Bachelor of Science degrees in Kinesiology and Health Promotion from the University of Wyoming
and in Nursing from Western Governors University. She earned a Master of Science in Nursing from Chamberlain University.
In addition to working with Barton, she has gained nurse practitioner practicum experience over the years by working with Dr. Lawrence Lauridsen and Dr. David Dansie in family medicine; Dr. Israel Stewart, internal medicine; Dr. Jeffrey Wheeler, obstetrics/gynecology; and Dr. Lucy Ryan, pediatrics.
