Family Medicine Center / Siouxland Medical Education Foundation

How many years has your business been in Siouxland? 43 years

What services do you offer?  The Family Medicine Center was established in 1975 in collaboration with Sioux City’s two hospitals, Mercy Medical Center and UnityPoint-St. Luke’s. For the past 40 years we have been in the business of caring for the whole family, from newborns to grandparents. We see patients for prenatal care, baby wellness, vaccinations, school and athletic physicals, acute care visits, annual physicals, regular check-ups, mental health, and much more. We provide extensive onsite laboratory and radiology services. Our pharmacists are available for medication consult and reconciliation.

The Siouxland Medical Education Foundation is a 3-year Family Medicine residency program designed to educate and train potential future doctors of Sioux City. The program welcomes 6 new residents each year that are looking to work in one of the many family medicine fields. Many doctors in the tri-state area have come from our program and we are proud to be a part of the continuing education process.

How many years has your business been a member of the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce?
We have been a member of the Siouxland Chamber for 36 years!

What do you enjoy most about being a Chamber member? We enjoy the diversity of the members, the strong focus on the Siouxland population as a whole and its advocacy in the state and country.

What is your favorite Chamber event/memory? Personally, playing human Foosball at a board retreat and beating Chris McGowan’s team!

What is a fun or surprising fact about your company/business?  Over 83% of family physicians within 30 miles are graduates of our program. We strive to return full scope physicians to Siouxland communities and hospitals.

Each Monday a Siouxland Chamber member is featured on our blog and Facebook page.
