On March 29, in celebration of Doctors’ Day, David Brandon, President and CEO of UnityPoint Health Finley Hospital, presented Ronald Iverson, M.D. with the Dr. John Finley Excellence in Medicine Award. The excellence in medicine award was created to recognize overall excellence in medical care by a physician who embodies the mission, vision, and values of Finley Hospital as selected by their physician, board and hospital colleagues.
Dr. Iverson specializes in endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism at Dubuque Internal Medicine and has a long history with Finley, serving as the medical director for the Kehl Diabetes Center for 20 years.
Other members of the Kehl Diabetes Center staff spoke to Dr. Iverson’s patience, leadership, knowledge, and community involvement.
The Dr. John Finley Excellence in Medicine Award was started in 2014 with the first recipient being Dr. John Viner. Last year’s winner was Dr. Ronald Schope. All winners are highlighted on a plaque at the main entrance of Finley.
