Central Peninsula Internal Medicine (CPIM) was established in 1991 by Dr. William J. Kelley with a goal of providing quality medical care to clients on the Kenai Peninsula. The practice has grown with the central Peninsula community it serves and now includes six physicians, two certified nurse practitioners and a first-rate professional support staff. Each of our physicians is board certified in internal medicine, and our nurse practitioners are nationally licensed and certified. All of our medical professionals enjoy strong relationships with Central Peninsula Hospital, other Alaskan medical institutions and medical centers outside of the state of Alaska.

University of Washington School of Medicine. The physicians at CPIM are on the
