Faith Regional is approaching its first full year of having a clinic in Neligh.
Neligh Family Medicine, operated by Faith Regional Physician Services, opened its doors in Neligh in June of 2017. Located in the Mill Pointe Plaza along with State Farm Insurance and Midwest Medical, Neligh Family Medicine provides a clinic that patients can get treatment from without driving to Tilden or Norfolk. Dr. Doug Dilly, one of the two providers at the Neligh clinic, said that they offer many small procedures that they could do in the clinic.
“We do a multitude of small procedures. We have full cardiac services here, we do echo cardiograms, we will do full x-rays, full lab work, iv antibiotics and iv fluids,” he said.
He said that most of the procedures aren’t common to find in a clinic in the area.
“A lot of minor procedures that we were trained in that aren’t that common, I think. We can do those here in the clinic,” he said.
As an affiliate of Faith Regional Physician Services, Neligh Family Medicine has the support and resources that aren’t typically found in a clinic. Dilly said that this is possible with the support of Faith Regional.
“A lot of things you are typically not able to do in a clinic, we are able to do because of the resources they have given us,” he said.
Many patients in the area have had to make the trip to Norfolk to stay in the hospital overnight for minor treatments. Now, Dilly said, that same treatment is possible in Neligh.
“If someone is going to just be in the hospital overnight to get tubed up, that’s the type of thing we can do here in an hour or two.”
Dilly is at the Neligh office on Monday and Wednesday and at the Tilden office on Tuesday and Thursday. On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Sharon Gossman, APRN, is able to see patients.
FRPS is an affiliate of Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk. FRPS also has primary care clinics in Battle Creek, Laurel, Madison, Norfolk, Pierce, Stanton, Tilden, Wakefield, Wayne, Wisner and Woodland Park.
