The Iowa Clinic was established in 1994 by 72 physicians who joined forces to increase the quality of patient care in Central Iowa as well as to respond to changes occurring in the local and national healthcare climate. The organization's goal, through its physicians and staff, is to continually raise the bar in the care it provides to the 1.3 million patient referral base it serves. With over 250 physicians and providers practicing in 40+ specialties and averaging 450,000 patient visits annually, The Iowa Clinic partners with local medical centers and hospitals to provide leading-edge healthcare for the patients of Central Iowa.
