Construction continues on the Waypoint Medical health care facility, located at 1801 U.S. Highway 18 E. in Clear Lake.

Work continues on a new health care facility slated to open next month in Clear Lake.

Waypoint Medical, a full-service family practice, is anticipated to open at the former Cancun Restaurant location, 1801 U.S. Highway 18 E., in February.

“We are still hopeful for a February opening, but as you know, living in North Iowa, we are at the mercy of the weather in some respects,” said Dr. John Brady, who is the acting CEO of QVS Medical Consulting.

Cancun Restaurant closed in 2019, and the property was sold to QVS Holding LLC for $420,000 in July, according to Cerro Gordo County property records. Construction began at the site last fall.

QVS Holding LLC is owned by Brady and Lenise Kollasch, a registered nurse and QVS Medical Consulting chief operating officer.

Waypoint Medical will provide full-service family practice with lab and X-ray capabilities. The clinic will be open extended and weekend hours.

Brady said the clinic will employ between 12 and 15 individuals, including three medical providers, and provide care to patients of all ages with acute and chronic medical needs.

“We are currently in the hiring process and will be training staff soon on use of our new electronic health record that has some unique features such as virtual visits,” he said.
