Dr. Kimberly Hushagen is a board-certified pediatrician, born and raised in small town North Dakota. She completed medical school at the University of North Dakota and went on to complete her pediatrics residency at Penn State in Hershey, Pennsylvania. The large academic center provided a wide breadth of knowledge in acute and complex pediatrics. She returned back to the Midwest with her husband (also a physician at RCMC) and their young son to make South Dakota their forever home.
Dr. Hushagen’s favorite part of pediatrics is watching her patients and their families grow and learn. She has a special interest in first time parents and breastfeeding support, being a mom herself. She strives to connect with patients at every age, especially teenagers, to start lifelong health goals and improve mental health.
When not at work, you may see Dr. Hushagen and her family at Rapid City Rush hockey games, working on their hobby farm, or spending time with friends and family playing games of all varieties.
