Welcome new providers

Welia Health is happy to announce two new providers have joined our team. Join us in welcoming Cherie Dowell and Beth Kempf.

Cherie Dowell, PA-C. My goal as a provider is to truly know my patients-to understand their needs and to hear their concerns, so we can work together as a team to improve their overall health.

Cherie Dowell, PA-C, earned her Master’s of Physician Assistant Studies at the University of North Dakota. Her interests include family medicine, gynecology, preventive medicine, and chronic disease management.

Beth Kempf, APRN, CPN. Compassionate care is achieved by taking time to listen to concerns while encouraging patient participation to achieve personal health goals.

Beth Kempf, APRN, CPS, studied nursing at Bethel University and earned her Master’s degree at Metropolitan State University. Her interests include chronic disease management, geriatric and preventive medicine, and women’s health.

New year, new you!

Start 2022 off right by attending Wellbeats classes at the Welia Center.  For every class you attend in January, you’ll earn an entry into our Wellbeats Challenge and possibly win a wonderful prize bundle. Check out the Welia Center class calendar and commit to moving more in the new year.

New billing statements and online bill pay

To ensure the process of paying for healthcare services is as easy and convenient as possible, Welia Health recently made a change to its payment vendor. This means a change, for the better, to billing statements and online payment portal. Read the announcement to learn more and set up your new account.
