ALBION, Nebraska (June 3, 2024) – Boone County Health Center (BCHC) is thrilled to announce the signing of Dr. Bryant Carlson, MD, as an addition to their medical team. Dr. Carlson, currently in the final stages of his residency, has already demonstrated exceptional qualities during his rotation in May.

A graduate of the UNMC Primary Care Program/Family Medicine Rural Training Track in Scottsbluff, Dr. Carlson brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to BCHC. His medical journey began at UNMC, where he obtained his medical degree in 2022, following his undergraduate studies at Wayne State College.

Hailing from Fremont, NE, Dr. Carlson is deeply committed to rural healthcare and aims to practice full-scope family medicine in a team-based approach. His special interests in obstetrics, inpatient medicine, and geriatrics align perfectly with the diverse needs of our community.

When asked why he chose BCHC for a rotation, Dr. Carlson shared, “As I embarked on my post-residency job search this year, I couldn’t help but notice the charm of Albion on my journey back home to Fremont from Scottsbluff. I began to wonder what it would be like to practice in such a welcoming environment. Moreover, knowing that this site was highly sought after during my third year of medical school, receiving an email from Caleb about a potential opening felt like a sign from above. Following my initial visit and subsequent month-long residency rotation, I became convinced that this was where I belonged. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to learn from BCHC’s exceptional staff and feel blessed to be entrusted with the care of this community’s patients.”

Caleb Poore, President and CEO of Boone County Health Center, remarked on the overwhelmingly positive feedback from patients regarding Dr. Carlson’s exceptional attentiveness to their needs. “Dr. Carlson’s dedication to patient care exemplifies the values we hold dear at BCHC, and we are delighted to have him as part of our medical team.”

Outside of medicine, Dr. Carlson is an avid outdoorsman, enjoying activities ranging from gardening and hiking to hunting and fishing. His dedication to the profession extends beyond clinical practice; he is known for his homemade cinnamon rolls and his commitment to daily mental challenges like Wordle and mini crosswords.

Dr. Carlson’s engagement with Boone County Health Center is set to commence in the fall of 2025, following his graduation from residency in June of that year. The entire BCHC family looks forward to welcoming him and witnessing the positive impact he will undoubtedly make on the lives of our patients.
