The Women’s Care Group to close Oct. 1


The Women’s Care Group, formerly Marshalltown Obstetrics-Gynecology P.C., recently notified UnityPoint Health-Marshalltown that effective Oct. 1, the practice will be closing.

“Maternity services in the Marshalltown community are considered a core, fundamental service,” Dustin Wright, vice-president of operations, UnityPoint Health-Marshalltown said.

“UnityPoint Health-Marshalltown remains committed to providing maternity and women’s health services and will continue these services without interruption to our patients and their families. Services include already established clinic appointments as well as newborn deliveries and care at the hospital.”

The Women’s Care Group leased office space from UnityPoint Health-Marshalltown therefore the clinic location, 407 E. Main St., will remain the same after Oct.1. The business is led by Dr. Richard Dowell and several advanced practice nurse midwives.

“UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown would like to thank The Women’s Care Group for their dedication to serving Marshalltown and surrounding communities,” Wright said.
