An open house for a new medical and physical therapy clinic in Wapello, Iowa, is scheduled from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 14, 220 Mulberry. Refreshments will be served.

The 4,500 square foot clinic brings two existing Great River Health Systems services – Great River Clinic and Great River Physical Therapy – together in one convenient location. Great River Health Systems opened the Wapello Clinic in 1981. Certified physician assistant Lori Lafayette has provided care at the clinic since 1993. Great River Physical Therapy opened in Wapello in July 2009, and it is staffed by doctor of physical therapy Bill Myers. Both services begin seeing patients at the new location Monday, Nov. 8.

Besides offering a modern facility for the two services, the clinic provides space to potentially add other services. General contractor for the construction project, which began in May 2010, was Carl A. Nelson and Company.
