On May 2nd, the Mahaska County Chamber of Commerce Diplomats joined Mahaska Health’s leaders, physicians, and nurses to recognize the new addition of services available to the community at Mahaska Health. The Ribbon Cutting ceremony commemorates the grand opening of the new state-of-the-art clinic dedicated to women’s health and wellness. The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, hosted at the new OB-GYN Women’s Health Clinic, through Door #3 at Mahaska Health’s Main Campus, featured a tour of the new facilities and an introduction to the new OB-GYN specialists and team. Chamber Members and Diplomats took the opportunity to learn about the services that are now available to Oskaloosa and the greater SE Iowa Region. Mahaska Health is actively expanding Women’s Health OB-GYN services in this clinic and with new OB-GYN physician specialists, Dr. Taylar Swartz Summers, DO, and Dr. Garth Summers, DO. The OB-GYN care team offers routine gynecology care, preventive care, prenatal care and fertility care.

This clinic a very important step in meeting the needs of local families!”
