The Veterans Memorial Hospital Medical Clinic is now open, offering needed primary family health care to the entire northeast Iowa area. Now, with both the Gundersen Waukon Clinic and VMH Waukon Clinic, northeast Iowa has the access to primary health care they need and deserve.
This new clinic is located in the former Mayo Clinic building. Renovation began in January and was completed in April. The building now meets the privacy and technology needs required by rural health care clinics today.
The hospital conducted a needs analysis prior to making the determination to open this clinic that showed an overwhelming need for 5-7 more providers in the area. To start, the VMH Medical Clinic has one physician, Dr. Dave Schwartz, two Nurse Practitioners including Sue McMillan, ARNP and Halie Ruff, ARNP, and one part-time Physician Assistant, Jon Hawes, PA.
Anyone with questions or concerns relating to transferring their medical records to the new clinic should call 563-568-3411 and ask for Medical Records.
The Veterans Memorial Hospital Waukon Clinic will be open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a special ‘sick child’ clinic every Monday morning starting at 7 a.m. Evening appointments will also be offered on Thursday’s until 7 p.m. The hospital’s urgent care clinic will also remain available weekdays 5-7 p.m. and weekends and holidays 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for use when the clinic is closed.
