Steamboat Grand

Dr. Bryan Scheer - Founder & Chairman of the Board

Steamboat Grand

Dr. Bryan Scheer co-founded Rural Partners in Medicine in 2010 after being frustrated with the traditional “outreach” model. He felt there was no reason that he could not safely perform most of his orthopedic cases in Critical Access Hospitals, so he pushed back against the model, contracting with individual hospitals to keep their patients and revenue local. Quickly, the demand became larger than what he could supply, so he started recruiting fellow orthopedic surgeons to help.

Since that time, he has worked closely with our hospital partners to hear the needs of their community and grow our service offerings. He is constantly innovating new ways to solve the inequities in rural health care by making specialty care in reach.
