Residents in the Victor area embarked on a campaign in 2000 to create a health center to serve the community’s health needs. The Victor Health Center now celebrates its 10th anniversary in Victor and the public is invited to celebrate this milestone.
“Although the healthcare industry continually changes and shifts in light of the economy, population shifts, government policies, and dynamics of providers, the Victor Health Center has continued to provide excellent healthcare services to area residents,” says Bill Lynch, Victor Health Center board president. “This anchor in our community has helped Victor retain its vibrancy and sense of community. The clinic truly fills a vital need and service to the residents who live in the community.”
Another key element is the re-opening of a pharmacy in Victor. Victor Health Center, an affiliate of Grinnell Regional Medical Center, and the pharmacy work together to meet the needs of patients. GRMC welcomes the new Victor Pharmacy to the community and this event.
The Victor Health Center will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a free brunch to the community and patients. The public is welcome to join the clinic and GRMC, on Sunday, Sept. 30, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the American Legion Center in Victor.
The menu will feature made-to-order fresh omelets, sausage from the Victor Locker, fresh fruit bar, mini pastries, and beverages. GRMC employees will be serving the meal along with clinic providers Roy Doorenbos, MD; Wendi Beck, PA-C; Michelle Rozmus, RN; and Shannon Nowotny, receptionist.
“We want to demonstrate our appreciation for all Victor residents who have supported us through the past 10 years,” says Michelle Rozmus, clinic nurse who has been with the clinic since it opened in 2002. “This menu provides fresh, healthy foods with much provided by local sources. We’re committed to supporting local businesses and producers while bringing a healthy alternative to the breakfast scene in Victor. It should be a great time and I hope everyone can join us.”
The clinic welcomes new patients, so any individuals seeking a quality healthcare provider are invited to meet Victor Health Center staff at the breakfast. Casie Olson, GRMC massage therapist who provides massages in Victor, will also be available for questions.
