Lieutenant Colonel, Dr. Dean Nelson, left the North Canyon Family Medicine family medicine clinic in May for a tour of duty in Germany.
Dr. Nelson is now stationed at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center near Kaiserslautern, and Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany. He is the officer in charge of processing wounded soldiers from the Middle East, stabilizing them, and then determining their readiness for transport home to the U.S. He is also an active physician in the military base emergency room where he tends to the wounded soldiers as they arrive for urgent care, along with all military personnel and their families. Dr. Nelson will be on deployment for 10-12 months before returning to work at NCMC.
We are honored to have someone of his caliber serving our country and look forward to his return in the coming months.
