Dr. Hank Newburn joined SMC in April 2017. Dr. Newburn is a seasoned physician, having spent 14 years serving families in the Seward, Nebraska area — where he also volunteered as a sideline physician for the local high school football team — prior to joining SMC. He also served as a family physician in the United States Army, where he was deployed to Egypt during the Afghanistan conflict.

Dr. Newburn is a native Nebraskan who earned his medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center at Omaha, and completed his residency through the Lincoln Medical Education Program Family Practice Residency Program. He is certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, and holds certifications in Advanced Trauma Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support.

The activities of their three children — Jake, Haley and Molly — keep Dr. Newburn and his wife, Shannon, very busy. His son is currently on active duty for the U.S. Army. Greatly enjoying the outdoors, he runs, enjoys hunting and fishing, and is a self-proclaimed “choreboy” for Shannon's horses.

Dr. Newburn and Shannon are excited to become a part of the communities of Saunders County, and are looking forward to starting this new chapter in their lives.
