Chris Williams, MD, Family Medicine
Dr. Chris Williams and his family are thrilled with the opportunity to join Memorial Hospital of Carbon County in providing healthcare services to Saratoga. With 20 years of clinical practice and a lifetime of rural experience, the Platte Valley is the perfect location for Dr. Williams and his family to settle and enjoy a wonderful community experience. Dr. Williams’s wife, Briana, is an outstanding musician, teacher, coach, and community supporter. She has enjoyed raising the family’s 8 children and loves the opportunities smaller communities offer. Their three adult children are excited to enjoy visits to Carbon County and the five younger kids are chomping at the bit with hopes of joining the Saratoga schools and participating in numerous activities and events.
Dr. Williams was raised in a small town in the Texas Hill Country where, at an early age, he began guiding expeditions of rock climbers, explorers, backpackers, and river runners to adventures in Wyoming as well as Colorado, Alaska, and other western states and also Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, and South America. After graduating from high school with 64 classmates in a wonderful rural community, he spent two years providing voluntary ministerial service in Western England and Southern Wales before studying zoology at Brigham Young University.

Jennifer Wagy, DNP, Family Medicine
Jennifer Wagy graduated with her Doctor of Nursing Practice from the University of Wyoming. She is a Board certified Family Nurse Practitioner through both the ANCC and AANP, with 9 years of nursing experience in both hospital and clinic settings in rural Wyoming.
Jennifer looks forward to providing quality care to all ages across the lifespan. In becoming a nurse practitioner, one of her main goals was to build on her foundation of nursing and her desire to care for people so they could live their best lives. She believes that building trusting relationships with patients is a key element of this goal as it allows for better continuity of care which is linked to better health outcomes. Preventative medicine and quality management of already present conditions is also paramount to the health of our community and she is very excited to be part of the MHCC team and able to provide this care to the residents of Carbon County.

After leaving the US Army, she settled in Indianapolis, Indiana with her husband and two children. When her youngest child started school, she started nursing school at Indiana University. After graduating from nursing school, she worked at Riley Hospital for Children (a large level one pediatric trauma center) in Indianapolis for 10 years. At Riley she worked as a pediatric Intensive Care Nurse, A Burn Unit Nurse and an Emergency Room Nurse. She was also a Pediatric/Neonatal flight nurse for 2 years.
