Letter from Dr. Kelly Lemieux
After 28 wonderful years of practice at Wayzata Children’s Clinic, I plan to step back from primary care pediatrics and to resign from Wayzata Children’s Clinic as of January 1, 2024. This has been a thoughtful and difficult decision. It has been informed by both my desire to step back, and toward retirement, from clinical primary care as well as a door that was opened with an opportunity to take a position as Medical Director of Pediatrics at Ridgeview Medical Center. In this new role at Ridgeview Medical Center, I will be focused on hospital-based care for newborns and walk in urgent care for pediatric patients. I will not be seeing pediatric patients for primary care clinic appointments. I am very excited for this opportunity and to be a part of building something new and good for our kids and communities while continuing to work side by side with all the community primary care pediatricians, including my partners at Wayzata Children’s Clinic. Ultimately, I take on this new role with gratitude for my time at Wayzata Children’s Clinic and the opportunities that I have had to learn, lead, and grow as a pediatrician while caring for your children. I am more than proud of the care we deliver for children and families here. I will remain proud of that work in my new role and confident that I leave you and your children in the hands of a talented and capable group of clinicians.
I will continue to see patients in the Spring Park site until the end of the year. My schedule has been closed to new patients to allow the opportunity for established patients to access appointments more easily, if needed, prior to my departure. I am committed to making this as smooth of a transition as possible for all of you. Please reach out to me via the patient portal or by phone through our nurse care coordinator, Leslie, with questions. I hope to see many of you prior to the end of the year.
Thank you for the privilege of caring for you and your children over the past 28 years!
Kelly Lemieux M.D.
