The Veterans Memorial Hospital Medical Clinic-Postville will host an open house for all area communities to attend Thursday, August 11 from 5-7 p.m.  The Postville Clinic is located at 124 West Green Street in the same location of the former Postville Medical Clinic in downtown Postville.

Full-time clinic family nurse practitioner Michelle Crary will be onsite explaining her new family health care medical practice and schedule availability, as will Dr. Thomas McMullan, who remains on part-time with the clinic. Nurse Midwife Katy Maker, NP will also be onsite to explain her maternity and women’s health care practice she will be starting in just a few weeks at both the Postville and Waukon VMH medical clinics. Laura Baxter, Clinic Director; Casey Fisk, Clinic Medical Assistant; Shaina Kruger, Clinic RN; and Teresa Berg, Clinic Receptionist, will all be onsite offering tours of the remodeled facility.

A mini-wellness fair will also be offered at the event including mini-stress tests and the  lollipop reach for children, offered by the hospital’s rehabilitation department. Free chair massages will be given by Shannon Bernatz, the hospital’s full-time licensed massage therapist; and the staff will also be offering complimentary blood sugar/diabetes tests with immediate results.

This open house has been planned at the same time as the Postville Farmer’s Market event as an additional attraction located conveniently across the street from one another.

The Veterans Memorial Hospital Medical Clinic-Postville follows a consistent schedule Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The clinic remains open over the lunch hour, then closes from 1-2 p.m. each afternoon.

This is the second clinic to be opened and managed by Veterans Memorial Hospital in just over a year.  The Waukon Clinic opened May 3, 2021. Both locations work closely, sharing many services and staff, ensuring patients are seen by a medical provider at one location or the other as soon as possible with great continuity of care.

Both clinics ensure providers will be available at both locations, covering for vacations and time off.   Scheduling can also be done for both clinics by calling either location. The Postville Clinic retained the same phone number of 563-864-7221. The Waukon Clinic number is 563-568-5530.

Future plans for expansion of the Postville Clinic include a nurse Midwife as well as a Behavioral Health Specialist. For questions about the new Veterans Memorial Hospital Medical Clinic-Postville, call the clinic at 563-864-7221.
