Gary Ruesch received both his bachelors in nursing and his Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner degree from the University of Utah. He began his nursing career working in a rehabilitation atmosphere, helping patients who were recovering from strokes, head and spinal cord injuries and multiple other traumas.  He transitioned to Primary Children’s Medical Center where he used his skills to provide a full-range of inpatient pediatric nursing services before joining the United States Air Force. While serving as an officer in the Air Force Nurse Corp he was stationed at bases in Texas, North Carolina, and Hill AFB in Utah before being transferred to Hawaii to serve as the Pediatric Clinic Director at Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii.
Gary brings with him over 24 years of pediatric experience, the last 16 years as a primary care pediatric provider.  His Pediatric Clinic at Hickam Air Force Base was consistently recognized as one of the top performing clinics in the Pacific Air Force Command and throughout the Air Force Medical Service.
Lieutenant Colonel Ruesch retired from the Air Force in May of 2017 following 21 years of activity duty service.  He and his wife Lisa, both natives of Utah, are excited to be back home and close to their three children and six grandchildren.  Gary is excited to be part of the Wasatch Pediatrics Family and to work alongside the outstanding providers and staff at the Draper Clinic.
When he is not at work you will find him happily spending time outdoors with family, and looking for more time to work on updating the 1940’s home they bought and hope to retire in.
