PRIVATE PATIENT ROOMS
Our founders have spent decades caring for patients in Southwest Wyoming. In that time, they came to believe strongly in the importance of high-quality, affordable healthcare that is accessible and keeps patients near to their families and homes.
So they came together to deliver precisely that.
In a hard-working community that understands the balance of quality and value, Aspen Mountain Medical Center focuses on personalized care and managing costs, so the financial burden of healthcare is not passed on to our patients. And because we’ve made our home here in Rock Springs, patients will spend less time traveling for healthcare and save even more.
Fully-Equipped Surgical Suites
Aspen Mountain Medical Center aligns a dedicated group of physician owners with a focused team of executives and staff, both understanding that the greatest outcomes are first preceded by the highest patient satisfaction. Together, they are the unified leaders of our facility and the directors of your number one choice for premier, affordable healthcare.

As a registered nurse for over 15 years and nursing leader for over 10 years, Melissa has acquired experience in the ER, ICU, medical surgical, corrections, long term care, travel nursing, and home health. She has a background in entrepreneurship; owning and operating a travel nursing company. Melissa serves as an adjunct nursing professional with Western Wyoming Community College.
Melissa chose nursing to help people but what she discovered was the many ways people would “ask” for help. Their medical and mental ailments may be missed due to differing means of communication. Melissa made a personal goal to be a better communicator in order to connect with populations more effectively. Melissa obtained an Associate’s degree in nursing through Western Wyoming Community College, Bachelor’s in nursing through the University of Wyoming, and her Master’s in Clinical Systems Leadership through the University of Arizona.
Melissa is most proud of her strong foundation in leadership. She is passionate about empowering and advocating for the caregiver and healthcare professional. The effect is felt through our community and her priority for excellence in patient care is evident. Melissa will be right at home with Aspen Mountain Medical Center.
Melissa is a Wyoming native, growing up in Moorcroft, WY and moved to Rock Springs in 2002. “I am drawn to the family feel of Rock Springs, this is my home, and I love the community dearly.” One of her favorite places to visit is Huether Road in the Badlands of South Dakota.
Melissa and her husband Dirk enjoy watching their son play basketball and football and their daughter play for an accelerated softball team in Utah. Melissa likes to long distance run, backpack, watch PRCA rodeo, eat radishes, and drink coffee. Her words to live by: This Is Fine.
