How many years has the Family Medicine Center and Siouxland Medical Education Foundation 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 Health-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 progress.

What is a fun or surprising fact about your 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.
