Providing quality, compassionate, comprehensive, and continuing patient care.

The Family Medicine Center was established in 1975 in collaboration with Sioux City’s two hospitals, Mercy and Unity Point - 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.

We are housed in a spacious facility allowing the Family Medicine Center to provide a full range of services that are aimed at trying to make patient care as convenient as possible.

Our dedicated medical professionals are on staff at both area hospitals and see our patients to ensure a continuity of care. Our staff is committed to providing compassionate service using an approach that provides the highest level of care. We aim to give our patients the tools they need to take charge of their health in every season of life.

Patient Centered Healthcare

The health and wellness of our patients is our primary focus at the Family Medicine Center. Providing outstanding care to our patients is our top priority. To achieve this goal, our care teams and patients must work together. This working together concept is the foundation for Patient Centered Healthcare.

Collaborative Care is a health care delivery model that improves quality of life and chronic disease management. These improvements in your health care are achieved by focusing on the whole person to identify and manage personal, social and environmental factors which affect your health through close collaboration among you, a Collaborative Care Provider and your Primary Care Provider.
