Dr. Clinton Pietz to join North Liberty family care center

NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa -- A pediatrician with substantial clinical experience at the Children's Hospital of Iowa will join the University of Iowa Family Care Center, North Liberty, beginning July 1.

Dr. Clinton Pietz succeeds Dr. Elizabeth Ehrhardt, whose family left the North Liberty area to live in California. Pietz, a 1992 graduate of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, completed his residency at the Phoenix Children's Hospital and at the Children's Hospital of Iowa, located at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. He has spent the past two years on the Children's Hospital of Iowa staff, serving in the outpatient clinic, nursery, and pediatric intensive care unit.

"My affiliation with the Children's Hospital of Iowa afforded me many opportunities to learn valuable lessons from the expert pediatrics staff at the University of Iowa," he said. "I appreciate this new opportunity to serve children and their families in a community environment."

In addition to Pietz, the clinic's staff includes two family practitioners, Drs. Britt Marcussen and Anne Sullivan, and obstetrician-gynecologist Dr. Kyra Geraghty.

The UI Family Care Center, North Liberty, is located at 3 Lions Drive near the Quail Creek Golf Course on Highway 965. It is affiliated with University of Iowa Community Medical Services Inc., a for-profit entity formed by the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and the UI College of Medicine.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, call the UI Family Care Center, North Liberty, at (319) 626-5680.
