Why Choose Us

Medical Associates was founded in 1964, when Dr. George York along with 10 other doctors had a vision of providing comprehensive health care services at one location. For over 50 years, our clinic has steadily grown to meet the increasing need for quality health care for the 75,000+ residents of the Gateway area.

Our quality driven, modern, 100,000 square-foot, multispecialty clinic and outpatient surgery center offer convenient and comprehensive care.

Whatever Your Ailment, We Have You Covered

The clinic's professional staff of over 40 physicians includes specialists in:

Medical care is enhanced by the support of Medical Associates' own extensive on-site medical laboratory, imaging department, mammography, cardiology lab, hearing and vision screening, occupational medicine department, nutritional and diabetic counseling services, and minor emergency rooms. The building also houses physical therapy services and a pharmacy.

Providing the Best Care in Our State-of-the-Art Facility

The main clinic is a modern 100,000 square-foot building [linked to location page) that is centrally located in Clinton, Iowa. A state-of-the-art hospital system is located minutes away. The community boasts a solid, diversified economic base, including over a dozen Fortune 500 companies.

A wonderful family environment, Clinton also offers exceptional elementary and secondary schools, a local community college, and 4-year liberal arts college, as well as a wide variety of recreational and cultural opportunities. Strategically located on the Iowa-Illinois border amid the scenic bluffs of the Mississippi River, Clinton is just over two hours west of Chicago and 35 minutes north of the Quad-Cities.

Our family is growing, just like yours

Medical Associates' goal of providing quality medical care for the entire Gateway area has resulted in the addition of satellite clinics: Fulton Family Health Clinic, Morrison Family Health Clinic (opened 1986), DeWitt Family Health Clinic (opened 1999), and Medical Associates Urgent Care and Occupational Medicine Clinic (opened 2014).
