BLAIR, Neb. – The Alegent Health Clinic in Blair is recruiting a new family medicine physician and expanding clinic hours. Kathleen Dylla, M.D., has announced plans that she will be pursuing another career focus specifically in bariatric medicine—the specialized treatment of obese patients and the health conditions often associated with obesity—and will eventually be leaving the clinic. As Alegent Health looks to hire a family medicine physician to replace her, Dr. Dylla has agreed to stay on at the clinic and continue seeing patients during the interim. Susan Ryan, PA-C, who has been seeing patients at Alegent Health Clinic locations in Omaha, will also return to work part-time at the Blair clinic.

The process of hiring a replacement for Dr. Dylla could take several months, but Alegent Health stresses that the transition will be smooth and Dr. Dylla remains committed to providing high quality routine and preventative health care for patients. Also beginning December 1st, the Alegent Health Clinic in Blair will offer expanded hours. The clinic will begin opening one-half hour earlier—from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday—to better accommodate patient schedules. The Alegent Health Clinic in Blair has been open since 1994 at the location of 718 S. 19th St. in Blair, Neb. Patients who wish to make an appointment at the Alegent Health Clinic in Blair can call (402) 426-5171.
