“We are very excited to open the doors on Siouxland’s newest health care facility,” says Chad Markham, Vice President of Clinics and Network Development for UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s. “Sunnybrook Medical Plaza offers a great location, great services and amenities and great medical staff.”
Built around a philosophy of care coordination, Sunnybrook Medical Plaza advocates seamless scheduling between physicians, clinics and other health care services, strong patient involvement in the health care decision making process and enhanced communication between providers involved in the patient’s care.
“Studies have shown effective care coordination leads to improved patient outcomes. Our patients will receive integrated care based on their own unique needs. We help healthy patients stay healthy and help those with ongoing health issues make informed decisions and maintain the highest quality of life possible,” says Dr. DJ Todt, a primary care physician with UnityPoint Clinic Family and Internal Medicine at Sunnybrook. “Our goal is to provide the best outcome for every patient every time. As a physician, I am thrilled about the new opportunities a facility like Sunnybrook Medical Plaza offers my patients.”
With demand for outpatient services expected to grow by 30% in the next 10 years, Sunnybrook Medical Plaza is an investment in the future of Sioux City health care adds Markham.
“We expect the demand for primary care access to grow with the aging population and the expansion of affordable health care options,” he says.
“Health care is constantly changing, and Sunnybrook Medical Plaza is a vital step in ensuring we provide the services and care our patients will need in the future,” says Dr. James Webb, another primary care physician with UnityPoint Clinic Family and Internal Medicine at Sunnybrook. “Our philosophy of care is centered on the patient and their family. Coordinated care will no longer be the exception but an expectation of patients at Sunnybrook. We are looking forward to the positive impact Sunnybrook Medical Plaza will have on Siouxland.”
