Dr. Gowen Announces Retirement

June 19, 2017Dr. Gowen


Dr. Lance Gowen, a family medicine physician with Gage County Medical Clinic for nearly four decades, is retiring.


“It is with much sorrow and sadness that I share with you that I will be moving this fall to be closer to family,” Dr. Gowen wrote in a letter to his patients. “During our 35 years here in Beatrice, working, raising our girls, developing countless close relationships, (my wife) Pam and I have been abundantly blessed. I am especially grateful to all those who have allowed me the privilege of caring for your health.”


Dr. Gowen’s retirement becomes effective Oct. 1. Patients of Dr. Gowen are encouraged to call Gage County Medical Clinic at 402-228-3436 for assistance in transferring to another family medicine provider at the clinic or in the community.


Dr. Gowen’s announcement follows that of Dr. Alan Langvardt, a family medicine physician at Beatrice Medical Center, who announced his retirement in March.


“Dr. Gowen and Dr. Langvardt are two of our many longtime Beatrice physicians who have served Beatrice well and they leave behind big shoes to fill,” said Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center Interim CEO Dr. John Findley.


Dr. Findley said the hospital is committed to maintaining a strong and vibrant local healthcare community, and is actively recruiting new doctors to serve the Beatrice area.


“Recruiting physicians is a long process,” Dr. Findley said, “but we are fortunate to have several physicians who are interested in our community and we hope to have an announcement in the near future.”


Gage County Medical Clinic, a Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center physician clinic, is located at 1101 N. 10th St. Other providers serving the clinic are Dr. David Gloor, Dr. Patrick McGuffey, Dr. Eric Thomsen, and Physician Assistants Brady Hanquist, Jaime Hatcliff and Anne Paulmeyer.
