Physician Peter Reynen returns to Milbank and the staff of Milbank Area Hospital Avera on September 1. Reynen began his medical career in Milbank in 1997. He departed in 2012, but returned on a part-time basis in 2018. He served as a hospitalist at the Milbank hospital while also working at Avera Queen of Peace Hospital in Mitchell and practicing family medicine at the Mitchell clinic.
“Dr. Reynen spent 15 years in Milbank. His experience in care for the whole family and emergency room medicine will truly benefit our patients,” says Natalie Gauer, administrator for Milbank Area Hospital Avera.
Dr. Nanci Van Peursem, family medicine physician at Avera Milbank says, “Dr. Reynen is an extraordinary physician. We are blessed and welcome him back to our team.”
“I’m excited to continue my work,” Reynen says. In many cases, it’ll be with patients and families I already know, but I also look forward to providing care to new patients and families. While living away, I had many good experiences. However, Camille and I look forward to being back in Milbank.”
Dr. Reynen and his wife have three adult children. In his free time, he enjoys bicycling, woodworking, and playing the guitar.
