What is the mission of your practice?
Kraemer Women’s Care is a private practice that promotes healthy living for women of all ages. By building a premier women’s healthcare company we are positioned to offer comprehensive healthcare services, innovative patient experiences, and exceptional care for all women.
What differentiates your practice from other specialists in the field?
Kraemer Women’s Care is a private practice. In this day and time, the majority of physicians are working in practices owned by hospitals. I own and operate KWC. I am in the field seeing the patients day in and day out, and this helps me to make the best decisions for both the business and most importantly, the patients.
How did you get involved with this practice?
My father and grandmother were physicians in the OB/GYN field. I would accompany my dad to the hospital when I was younger and in college to better understand what he did, and I developed a love for helping patients.
What do you like best about your line of work?
Seeing a new mom hold her newborn or helping a patient who is having medical issues by performing surgery to give her a better quality of life.
What is something people would be surprised to learn about your practice?
Our practice has really grown, and we now have three locations around Columbia. I still see patients at all locations and really enjoy being involved in all aspects of the practice. I like the balance of seeing patients but also the challenge of the business side as well.
What is your favorite pastime?
I enjoy traveling with my wife, Carly, and two children, Alex and Kacy. I have always loved animals, and I have three dogs — two English bulldogs and a Boerboel.
What is the latest trend in your business?
There are many beliefs out there as to how the healthcare system evolves. As consumers we should expect the three pillars of healthcare to constantly improve: quality of care, cost of care, and patient experience. This gets accomplished by understanding advancing technologies. As for a specialty practice such as ours, we must constantly re-evaluate technologies either in clinical practice or business processes to assure that our patients are getting best in class healthcare.
What are your goals for this year?
2020 was a unique year with COVID. But, in 2021, our practice is hoping to continue to grow and offer our services to more women of the Midlands and surrounding areas.
How has the Columbia community benefited from your practice?
Kraemer Women’s Care has given women another option for healthcare. In a time when so many practices are owned by hospitals, we have remained a private practice and look forward to continuing to give women the option to receive the best care in a family style environment.
