Radiant Complexions (RC) Dermatology, an entity of Iowa Dermatology Clinic, will open a new space at St. Anthony Regional Hospital in Carroll. The 2,112 square-foot, redesigned suite is located across from the St. Anthony Gift Shop and will open September 25, 2019. The clinic will open on a limited basis and will expand to full-time hours in November 2019. At that time, clinic hours will be available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
“We have developed an outstanding relationship with St. Anthony, providing visiting specialty services,” said Matthew Schemmel, MHA, RC COO. “There is an expanded need for dermatology services in west central Iowa, and we want to provide a convenient solution. Carroll is a wonderful community – and we are committed to being a part of that community.”
The clinic will offer complete, convenient and personalized dermatology care, providing both medical and cosmetic services. Each of RC Dermatology’s 12 clinics focus on medical treatment for skin cancer, moles, rashes, psoriasis, acne, eczema and other skin conditions. The organization also has its own dermatopathologist, which allows for increased collaboration and immediate communication on each patient case. Cosmetic services, such as Botox, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, microneedling and dermal fillers, will also be available.
“We are always looking for ways to provide quality care, close to home,” said Ed Smith, St. Anthony President and CEO. “We are excited to have RC Dermatology services locally, so that our patients can see a dermatologist during regular business hours and return to work or go home, without traveling an hour or more.”
RC Dermatology will employ three providers to meet the demand for daily appointments, including Heidi Curtis, MSN, ARNP, FNP-C, DCNP, who has seen patients at the Specialty Clinic at St. Anthony for the past year.
“Through our new clinic at St. Anthony, we have the opportunity to provide dermatology services, without the wait,” Curtis said. “The clinic will provide more availability and increased access to dermatology care. It is our hope that we will be able to see more patients who otherwise may have decided to forego dermatology treatment due to a lack of proximity to care.”
RC Dermatology is now accepting appointments. Medicare, Medicaid and all major insurance plans are accepted. For more information or to schedule your appointment, contact the clinic at (712) 220-7069.
