Clarion, Belmond, and the broader Wright County community are blessed to have such a high-quality, well-recognized source of medical care as Iowa Specialty Hospital. Since the Belmond Medical Center and Wright Medical Center joined together five years ago, their combined strength has been an asset for the community.

Iowa Specialty Hospital will soon be further enriched with the addition of a husband and wife team, both doctors: Michael and Andrea McLoughlin. 

After completing medical school at the Carver College of Medicine, they both completed their medical residencies in Des Moines, with Andrea specializing in family medicine and Michael in internal medicine. They then moved to Tacoma, Washington, where Andrea completed a one-year internal medicine fellowship, where she learned how to do cesarian sections. Michael began practicing internal medicine at the Madigan Army Medical Center, where he was a residency leader. 

On November 10, Iowa Specialty Hospital will host an open house in the Clarion location board rooms to welcome the McLoughlins. Please stop by between 1 and 3 p.m. to wish them well and welcome them to town.
