(Neb)-Omaha Surgeon Named Neb Chief Medical Officer
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Gov. Pete Ricketts has appointed an Omaha surgeon to serve as Nebraska's next chief medical officer. Dr Gary Anthone, who earned his medical degree from Creighton University, will also serve as director of the state's Division of Public Health.
Anthone comes to state government from a private surgical practice in Omaha, where he also was a faculty member at the Creighton Medical School Dept of Surgery. He previously was director of bariatric surgery at Methodist Hospital in Omaha and the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
Anthone will start his new job Sept. 3 with a $250,000 salary. He replaces Dr. Tom Williams, who retired last year after he was diagnosed with an eye disease.
