Eastern Iowa Women’s Health Center Announces Relocation
Healthcare Provider Open January 3 at Former UnityPoint Health –
St. Luke’s Family Health Center

 

Cedar Rapids, Iowa—Eastern Iowa Women’s Health Center (EIWHC), offering OB/GYN services and the newest healthcare provider under the umbrella of Eastern Iowa Health Center, will be closed December 29-30 as their office is moved to the former UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Family Health Center located at 4251 River Center Court NE.

The move coincides with the transition of St. Luke’s Family Health Center, a Title X Family Planning Clinic offering family planning and related preventive health services for low-income or uninsured individuals in Benton, Jones and Linn County in Iowa to Eastern Iowa Women’s Health Center.

EIWHC President & CEO Joe Lock said the move and expansion to include Title X services is timely, as the health center recorded a record 16,000 patient encounters and delivered more than 720 babies in 2016. Lock said it is expected that these numbers will continue to increase in the New Year.

“Family planning services and prenatal care are critical to the health of our community.” Lock said, “We are proud to serve all women in need of OB/GYN services in our community, and continue to uplift our mission to provide healthcare to those who need it regardless of the ability to pay.”

Important dates and contact information:
EIWHC will be closed Thursday, December 29 through Friday, December 30, , but will be available by phone (319) 730-7300, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on those dates.

EIWHC will reopen January 3, 8:00 AM, serving OB/GYN patients at 1201 4251 River Center Court NE.

EIWHC will also continue to serve patients, including Title X family planning services, with outreach locations in Benton, Jones and Linn Counties.
