New Heartland Family Medicine Clinic Now Open

The Harlan County Health System Board of Trustees, along with CEO Mark Miller, is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of the new Heartland Family Medicine Clinic. The long-anticipated ribbon cutting will be held March 30 at 1:00 pm at 906 7th Street in Alma, Nebraska.

Miller notes, “We are excited to announce the new building will be named the Dr. James S. Long Family Medical Building. Over the past few months, we have heard dozens of stories about Dr. Long and his impact on specific families in this community. It became increasingly evident that we should honor him with the dedication of this new building. We believe the opening of the new clinic continues Dr. Long’s desire to make first-rate health care accessible to the residents of Harlan County and its neighbors. We invite everyone to join us for the ribbon cutting and dedication, and we encourage you to leave your notes of thanks for Dr. Long.”

Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, guests will be able to explore the new clinic, enjoy cake and visit with staff. Appointments will be available beginning March 18.

Dr. Long and partner purchased the Alma medical practice in 1955 and began a forty year legacy of quality medical service and leadership to the community. An advocate of strengthening health services in rural areas, Dr. Long served as teacher and preceptor to countless medical students and residents. We are pleased to dedicate the Dr. James S. Long Medical Building in honor of him at the grand opening of the new medical clinic located just west of the current clinic.
