Construction on the Iowa Specialty Hospitals and Clinics facility in Garner is about a month behind schedule but is on track to open this summer.

That’s what Dan Peterson, Iowa Specialty Hospitals and Clinics maintenance leader, said Tuesday morning.

“They’re doing work on the inside, but the outside work is at a standstill,” he said.

Iowa Specialty Hospital-Belmond broke ground in October on the new 8,000-square-foot integrated care clinic at the intersection of Highway 18 and Highway 69 in Garner.

Peterson said contractors are working on heating, ventilation and air conditioning, plumbing and electrical with hopes of completing construction and opening the clinic in early July.

The clinic will offer family medicine, occupational medicine, weight-loss management, women’s health and orthopedics, as well as counseling and therapy through primary care, mental health providers. It will also offer laboratory, radiology and visiting specialists.

Iowa Specialty Hospitals and Clinics opened a temporary clinic at 800 First Ave. N. Suite 1 in Clear Lake in November to serve area patients until the Garner Clinic is completed.

Jennifer Scott, an advanced registered nurse practitioner, and Dr. Charles Mooney are providing family medicine and occupational medicine in Clear Lake before transitioning to Garner.

Other primary care providers planned for the Garner Clinic are Amy Davidson, Renee Diamond, Jackie Dohlman, Jody Horstman and Andrew Odland.
