McFarland Clinic has agreed to become the first tenant in CYTown, Iowa State University’s multi-use district currently under construction between Jack Trice Stadium and the Iowa State Center.
“We are grateful for the leadership of the McFarland Clinic Board of Directors and Andrew Perry, CEO, for coming alongside Iowa State University to partner on this transformative project for Central Iowa,” said Iowa State Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard. “McFarland made history as one of Iowa’s first multi-specialty clinics when it first opened its doors some 80 years ago, and we believe its support of CYTown will be equally impactful for the campus community, Ames and Central Iowa for future generations.”
McFarland Clinic is expected to break ground on an anticipated 60,000-square foot multi-level medical facility adjacent to the north entrance of Jack Trice Stadium in the summer of 2024. It will be the first building developed as part of the university’s new 40-acre multi-use district, which was publicly announced in September 2022, and saw construction start in March 2023.
"This partnership is a win-win-win for ISU, McFarland, and the communities we serve," said Andrew Perry, McFarland Clinic CEO. "This is a convenient location within the city of Ames and helps us fulfill several strategic priorities by improving access to care and opening up additional space for recruitment of new Story County physicians. We are proud to support CYTown, the university, and the economic impact it will have with retail and entertainment offerings."
McFarland Clinic at CYTown will offer primary and specialty care as well as urgent care. CYTown is conveniently located on campus for ISU faculty, staff, and students and accessible by major thoroughfares for patients in and outside of Ames.
When finalized, formal agreements between McFarland Clinic and Iowa State University are subject to approval from the State of Iowa’s Board of Regents.
