HAMPTON — Officials at Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa confirmed Monday that Dr. Brian Hansen, a family physician employed at Franklin General Hospital, was no longer a member of the Franklin General staff as of Friday.
Further details were unavailable from the hospital.
“Because this is a personnel issue, we, per our policy, cannot comment,” Mercy officials said in a prepared statement. “Franklin General Hospital is committed to excellent patient care and has ensured that patient care continues uninterrupted and unaffected by any staff changes.”
A native of Hampton, Hansen earned his associate degree at North Iowa Area Community College, bachelor’s degree at Buena Vista University and medical degree at Des Moines University, from which he graduated in May 2003 with a doctor of osteopathic medicine degree.
He entered the Mercy Family Medicine Residency Program in July 2003 and began practicing at Franklin General Hospital in 2006.
