Dr. Christian Wightman, Medical Director

Helping people live better lives in the community where he grew up motivates our Medical Director.

For Dr. Wightman, a career in medicine meant an opportunity to be a life-long learner and to be of service to others. Both of which, he gets to do on a daily basis at Tri-County Family Medicine.

Growing up in Allegany County, he knew he wanted to return to the area after completing his residency. He did and has been here ever since. “I wanted to serve the people and area where I grew up and see it grow. That gives me a tremendous sense of satisfaction.”

Dr. Wightman graduated Suma Cum Laude from Binghamton University before moving on to medical school at Upstate Medical University. After doing his residency at Highland Family Medicine, he joined Tri-County in 2011.

Another form of satisfaction he gets at Tri-County is helping to train young medical professionals (and he’s very good at it). “Your first year as a physician or advanced professional, requires a mentor. I enjoy being that person and sharing what I have learned over the years. In the end, it benefits our patients to move toward greater total wellness. And that’s what it’s all about.”

When he is not providing patient care, Dr. Wightman enjoys being outdoors with his wife and three children, canoeing or hiking.

Kiera Kuhn, MS-HQS, BSN, RN

Director of Practice Transformation, Quality, and Corporate Compliance

 A career in nursing has led to developing innovative solutions for all our patients.

Kiera wanted to be a nurse from a very young age. She shares a fond memory of taking a career class in the late 70’s with a Tri-County Family Medicine Physician’s Assistant (PA) for young students interested in the healthcare profession. “The opportunity to explore the hospital environment with a PA from Tri-County certainly helped me confidently choose a career in health care.”

She joined Tri-County in 2017 after serving as Director of Quality at both major healthcare systems in Rochester, NY. She is also a board member for the Greater Rochester Quality Council. Kiera also received a Master’s in Healthcare Quality and Safety from Thomas Jefferson University. The program outlined approaches to improving the delivery of healthcare.

As a native of the area, she chose to return “home” to Tri-County to share expertise acquired to build systems to help support the surrounding communities with better access to affordable healthcare.

Kiera is motivated by patients and believes that going the extra mile for them is the best approach to patient care. “Instead of judging people, stand by them and help to build their future. I believe you should treat others the same way as you or your family would want to be treated.”

In her spare time, Kiera enjoys spending time with her family, both human and fur babies. During the summer, her favorite pastime is relaxing in her pool while thinking of new innovative approaches to healthcare

Director of Operations and Human Resources

It started with a desire to be a part of the healthcare solution in her hometown. Meet Karen Stone, Director of Operations and Human Resources

Thirty-two years ago, Karen began working at Tri-County Family Medicine with a desire to give back to her community. Tri-County was making great strides in providing health care to her family and neighbors and she wanted to be a part of it.

Karen has consistently risen in roles of responsibility at Tri-County from a variety of administrative positions, starting with a medical secretary/receptionist, which then lead her to a job as a Roving Office Manager, and ultimately landed her in the administrative office. She now is hiring people who can also have an impact on the community and making the health centers more efficient in her role as Director of Operations and Human Resources.

Karen leads the effort at Tri-County to implement the Electronic Medical Records System (EMR) that makes communication between medical professionals better, improves the overall accuracy of personal health records, and makes reimbursement from insurance more efficient.

“Every morning I get up early and know that today will be rewarding for me. We’re always thinking about how we can make it easier for our patients to receive the best care. Whether we’re hiring newly qualified clinicians, improving processes such as patient/provider communications or providing our patients with electronic results on the portal; each has an important role to play,” said Karen.

In her spare time, Karen enjoys gardening, craft projects, and hiking.
