Robertson Spotlight 1
Provider Spotlight

Dr. Ken Robertson

Dr. Ken Robertson has been practicing medicine in Laramie, Wyoming for over 40 years. Dr. Robertson comes from a family of healthcare providers so it was no surprise he chose to study medicine. With the strong encouragement from a mentor and professor, he decided on internal medicine as his specialty.

In 1977, after his ser­vice in the Air Force, Dr. Robert­son moved to Laramie and start­ed prac­tic­ing as a Board Cer­ti­fied Internist. After many years in pri­vate prac­tice, he joined our Hos­pi­tal­ist team 10 years ago.

At the age of 12, Dr. Robert­son took a Boy Scout trip to a camp near Taos, New Mex­i­co. Hav­ing grown up on the east coast, he hadn’t expe­ri­enced any­thing like the sun­ris­es and moun­tains in the west. Dur­ing that trip, he told him­self, I’ll be tread­ing water until I get back here.” It wasn’t until after med school, dur­ing his res­i­den­cy in Den­ver, that Dr. Robert­son found his way back to the west. Dr. Robert­son and his wife own a ranch out­side of town and he spends every fall guid­ing hunters near the Green Riv­er Lakes. He loves Laramie for the small com­mu­ni­ty feel, the uni­ver­si­ty, and the oppor­tu­ni­ties he has to teach students. 

Dr. Robert­son is pas­sion­ate about teach­ing and has sup­port­ed the edu­ca­tion of future med­ical pro­fes­sion­als for 40 years. He has taught class­es for the Col­lege of Health Sci­ences at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Wyoming, sup­port­ed the research of mas­ter and doc­tor­al stu­dents, served on the Insti­tu­tion­al Review Board at UW, and was involved with the WWA­MI Pro­gram since its incep­tion until 2016

Dr. Robert­son con­tributes to a strong team of Hos­pi­tal­ists, many of whom have been work­ing togeth­er for close to 20 years. We work well togeth­er, and can take bet­ter care of patients because of it,” he said when speak­ing about the con­ti­nu­ity of care the Hos­pi­tal­ist team pro­vides. As Dr. Robert­son tran­si­tions from active, inpa­tient prac­tice, he is excit­ed about the growth Ivin­son is see­ing in out­pa­tient oppor­tu­ni­ties, specif­i­cal­ly, with the reha­bil­i­ta­tion programs. 

We are grate­ful Dr. Robert­son chose to build his career here in Laramie and pro­vide excep­tion­al care to our com­mu­ni­ty through the years!
