Robert O’Rourke was born in Kalispell, Montana. I lived for the first few years in Libby, however my family moved to Seattle, Washington where I was raised. I loved spending my summers and school breaks back in Libby and promptly moved back permanently after graduating high school in 1993.
I first fell in love with the medical field during the 10 years that I spent volunteering as an EMT for Libby Volunteer Ambulance. This love eventually lead me to become a Respiratory Therapist and I worked for 16 years at St. John’s Lutheran Hospital, now Cabinet Peaks
Although Cardiopulmonary was a fantastic career opportunity, my true desire has always been to develop my skills and offer a higher level of service to my patients and community.
To that end, I returned to school to become a Physician Assistant and have worked in Family Medicine at the Libby Clinic since graduating in 2018.
I truly enjoy Family Medicine as it gives me the chance to get to know my patients and make a difference in almost every aspect of their lives.
I am excited to join the team at the Northwest Community Health Center where I hope to continue making a positive impact on the lives of individuals and the community that we serve
