Kelly J. Cushing, DO


Dr. Cushing grew up in the Midwest and transplanted out west for college at the University of Colorado Boulder, where she received her BA in Psychology. After traveling abroad in Asia and returning to Colorado to work on ski patrol, she decided to contribute to the world as a physician and went to medical school at Kansas City University of Osteopathic Medicine and Biosciences.

She completed her family medicine residency at University of Washington Rural Training Track in Boise, Idaho. She practiced broad spectrum rural medicine in a migrant farm clinic to fulfill her service commitment as a National Health Service Corps scholar and continues to hone her Spanish skills.

Kelly is board certified in Family Medicine and has been a hospitalist since 2013. Kelly comes to BCH from Providence Seaside Hospital in Oregon.

Professional interests include Palliative Care, cross-cultural medicine, and hospital medicine. In her spare time, Kelly enjoys all that Colorado has to offer, including skiing, biking, gardening and entertaining her rescue dog.
