UnityPoint Health Finley Hospital is pleased to announce construction on the Grandview Expansion project is complete. The Grandview Expansion will house the hospital’s new emergency department, surgical suites and heart center. Construction of the project started May 2014 and is the largest expansion project in Finley’s history.
Now that construction is complete, Finley will spend the next several months transitioning departments from their current locations to their new locations. This period will also include extensive training for staff. During this transition period, Finley will also host an open house for members of the community to get a sneak peek of the new emergency department, surgical suites, and heart center on Saturday, June 4, noon-4:00 p.m.
Finley Hospital will begin seeing patients in the new surgical suites on June 13. The Heart and Vascular Center, Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab, and UnityPoint Clinic Cardiology will begin seeing patients during the weeks of June 27 and July 11. The new Emergency Department will begin seeing patients on August 17.
UnityPoint Health® Finley Hospital will be opening two new UnityPoint Clinics in Dubuque this fall. According to a recent study by the American Medical Association, the Dubuque and tri-state area have a primary care provider shortage. In fact, the data indicates a shortage of 19 primary care providers.
To help meet the growing health care needs of the community, Finley Hospital will open UnityPoint Clinic – Family Medicine at 4170 Pennsylvania Ave. on August 1, 2016 with Kenneth Martin, MD. In addition, Finley has announced plans to acquire Women’s Wellness Center, also located at 4170 Pennsylvania Ave. Women’s Wellness Center will close on June 1 for a two-month period while Finley makes equipment improvements and renovations. UnityPoint Clinic – Women’s Health will open in the same location on August 1, 2016 with nurse practitioner Gretchen Hong, WHNP, AHNP. Both clinics include exam rooms, radiology services, as well as lab services.
Women’s Wellness Center has served a key niche in the community, focusing on women’s health concerns for premenopausal, menopausal, and postmenopausal women and Finley is excited for the opportunity to continue to serve women in the Dubuque area.
Finley Hospital believes the opening of UnityPoint Clinic – Family Medicine and UnityPoint Clinic – Women’s Health will result in the best outcomes for patients. Having an integrated hospital and clinic allows for complete care coordination. An open house will be planned for both UnityPoint Clinics this fall.
