Wednesday, November 28, 2018
Looking for a change of pace and a better quality of life, Dr. Regg Hagge moved with his family, wife Danielle and their 4 daughters, to Newcastle to join the staff at Weston County Health Services. Hagge, who began work in Newcastle on Aug. 1, and his family have already become quite involved in Weston County life.
Born and raised in Bloomfield, Nebraska, Hagge stayed close to home to attend college. He attended undergraduate school at Chadron State College in Nebraska before moving on to The University of Nebraska medical school.
After school at the University of Nebraska, from where he graduated in 1998, Hagge practiced family medicine for the last 10 years in South Dakota, where he met WCHS CEO Maureen Cadwell. Prior to South Dakota, Hagge worked in Nebraska.
“There are many moves between Nebraska and South Dakota, too many to list,” Hagge said, adding that prior to moving to Newcastle his family lived Valentine, Nebraska.
According to Hagge, he has practiced family medicine for the past 20 years – most recently in Valentine — and his true love is obstetrics, the field of study concentrated on pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. He said that although he really enjoys delivering babies, he was ready for a change.
