Dr. Flanigan worked as core staff at Mercy Anderson until he deployed in 2013 as the Department Head of the Emergency Department in the NATO Role 3 Medical Unit in Kandahar, Afghanistan.  When he returned he briefly worked as a Firefighter when Mercy Springfield was acquired by USACS but returned to Mercy Anderson.  In  November 2015, with the acquisition of six more sites in greater Cincinnati, he became the Medical Director at the free-standing Mercy Medical Center- Mt. Orab.  Wanting to work at more than one site, Dr. Flanigan returned to a core clinical staff position, working at all of the Cincinnati sites until rejoining the Firefighter program in July 2017.  Upon returning to the Firefighter’s, Dr. Flanigan was sent to Catholic Medical Center, Manchester, NH, where, on 1 January 2018, he assumed the role of Medical Director.

Outside of the USACS, Dr. Flanigan is a Commander in the United States Navy Reserves assigned as the Officer-In-Charge of the Miami Detachment of Surgical Company Bravo, 4th Medical Battalion, United States Marine Corps.
