The McFarland Clinic Story: Making Medical History for 65 Years
Presented by Shelley Goecke and Retired Clinic Physicians
At a time when many physicians offered services from their homes or small offices, G.E. McFaraland, Sr., MD, introduced a model of care that at the time could only be labeled as revolutionary. In 1946, Dr. McFarland invited his two sons and two additional partners to join him in a group practice and planted the seed of what has grown into Iowa's largest physician-owned, multi-specialty clinic. Learn about its founding members, its history, and advances in medicine as it celebrates 65 years of service in central Iowa.
This event is sponsored by the Ames Historical Society and will be held at the Ames City Auditorium, 520 Sixth Street, Ames. A $2 donation is requested at the door for the Historical Society.
