University of Iowa to close Sigourney clinic

University of Iowa Health Care will close its Sigourney clinic on July 27 after about 20 years of operation.

“The decision was made to focus on providing specialty services for cardiology, orthopedics, pulmonary and urology in the area, with an eye toward expanding specialty care options there,” UI spokesman Tom Moore said. “It was also determined that staff from Keokuk County Health Center had the capacity to take on the primary care services for patients who elect to switch to KCHC’s care.”

The primary clinic conducted about 7,000 patient visits last year, Moor said.

The decision to close the clinic surprised KCHC Chief Executive Officer Matt Iver as the UI clinic — which leases space from the hospital — still had seven years left on its lease.
