Des Moines, March 13, 2009 – Signaling continued growth and expansion of services at the Broadlawns Medical Group Primary Care Clinic, Angelia R. Whetro, D.O., has joined the staff, bringing the number of physicians at the clinic to three in less than nine months.
A graduate of Des Moines University of Osteopathic Medicine, Whetro completed her residency at Broadlawns Medical Center. She is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.
“Dr. Whetro has been practicing family medicine in the Des Moines area for nearly five years, and we are fortunate to bring her back to Broadlawns,” said Douglas Workman, M.D., Director of Broadlawns’ Primary Care Clinic. “Her addition to our staff means we are able to serve more patients through our clinic’s medical home model. That’s great for our community.”
With a history that reaches back to 1903 as a community health center, Broadlawns Medical Center first opened its doors as a hospital to the residents of Polk County on April 13, 1924. Over the years, Broadlawns has adapted to the changing demands of public health care, yet remained true to its mission of offering quality health services to all Polk County residents and training tomorrow’s health care professionals.
Today, Broadlawns Medical Center is composed of:
- An acute care community hospital serving medical, surgical, mental health and primary care needs, including pediatrics and women’s health care.
- A 60-member physician practice overseeing numerous specialty clinics and outpatient services.
- A family medicine residency program that graduates physician leaders who today serve throughout Iowa and across the nation.
