Central Nebraska Infectious Disease Clinic


Dr. Daniel Brailita opened the first full-time infectious disease practice in the region in 2007 — Central Nebraska Infectious Disease.

The clinic, in cooperation with Mary Lanning Healthcare, is a regional practice that helps with inpatient consultations on complicated infectious diseases; outpatient consultations at the Hastings location and outreach clinics in Grand Island, Superior and Red Cloud; and a travel clinic to help travelers get their vaccinations and certificates.

Dr. Brailita earned his Medical Degree with honors from Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, Romania, in 1998. He completed medical residency with Texas Tech University between 2002 and 2005, also serving one year as Chief Resident. He then completed a fellowship in infectious diseases at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas. He was Chief Fellow.

Dr. Brailita said he and Kimberly Doht, APRN, deal with any complicated infection in adults, including hepatitis C and HIV management, and complicated drug-resistant infections. Dr. Brailita said CNID may be the largest HIV and Hepatitis C provider in the state outside of Lincoln or Omaha.

In addition, Central Nebraska Infectious Disease works on antibiotic stewardships with Mary Lanning Healthcare and Dr. Brailita is a Medical Consultant for the Nebraska Tuberculosis Elimination Division. He is available for consultation on infection control, TB and other issues.

“The reason I enjoy ID (infectious disease) is because it is not really organ-specific. Sometimes we are just brought in to solve the pieces of the puzzle” he said. “We operate a little like detectives.”

Sometimes, being a medical detective requires spending more time with patients and looking beyond the obvious, Dr. Brailita said.

“I enjoy doing it and I enjoy helping patients,” he said. “It is very refreshing to see patients improve. There are cases where we have felt really good because you see people get back to their regular lifestyle.”

Dr. Brailita said he, his wife, Dora; and two children, Diana and Matthew, enjoy Hastings and its family life. Dr. Brailita enjoys volunteering to help his kids in swimming activities and at school.

“Hastings is small enough but there are also a lot of opportunities for kids and families,” Dr. Brailita said. “I don’t think people outside of the Hastings area realize how strong our healthcare system is. The hospital in Hastings really does many things large hospitals do. That’s why I’ve stayed here.”
