September 12, 2023
BENTON, Ark. (September 12, 2023) – On Monday, Sept. 11, Saline Women’s Clinic welcomed a new women’s health provider.
Dr. Ralynn Brann specializes in gynecology, prenatal care, labor and delivery, contraception, well woman visits and menopause care. Brann said she is passionate about women’s health because she gets to meet diverse needs.
“I love being able to care for patients through not only difficult times, but happy times, like childbirth, too,” Brann said. “I hope to provide a safe and compassionate space for women in this community to discuss whatever concerns they have, big and small.
Originally from Brinkley, Brann attended medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, where she earned honors in research. She completed her residency at University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, Texas.
“I’m happy to be moving back to Arkansas; it feels like coming home, especially since I have a sister who lives here in Saline County,” she said. “I’m looking forward to being part of Saline Women’s Clinic because they have a great reputation.”
Saline Health System CEO Michael Stewart said Brann is a great addition to the clinic, which also includes four physicians – Dr. Lane Aughenbaugh, Dr. Christina Green, Dr. Angela Myles and Dr. James Robb – and two nurse practitioners – Maggie Hicks and Wendy Bennett. Appointments are available at 501-776-6249 or SalineClinics.org.
