Get to Know Mike Dowling

Mike has worked at LRHC since May 2023 as our Chief Experience Officer. Mike recently retired from the Nebraska State Patrol after serving 27 years. He was originally assigned to the division of Traffic and eventually transferred to the agency’s specialty divisions, where he worked in narcotics and criminal enterprises. Mike was honored to serve the people of Nebraska daily while understanding the long tradition that the Nebraska State Patrol upholds. “I could not have done this job without the great support of my wife, Chystal, and our four kids, Hope, Caleb, Logan, and Molly.”

Mike and his family enjoy vacationing and watching high school and college sports. He and his wife recently became “empty nesters” so he can’t forget about their wonderful friends they have met during their journey through life, the type of friends who would do anything, anytime to help.

“I am so grateful for my wonderful wife, Chrystal, and the family we have been given. They have supported me through sickness and health and all the other issues a family goes through over the years.”

“The best part of working at LRHC are the patients I get the opportunity to visit with as well as the employees. This place takes special people that are willing to help the sick who have placed their lives in the hands of our staff. That TRUST is extremely unique from patient to patient but simple, if each of us are compassionate each and every day.”
