CYTown Welcomes McFarland Clinic
Located in Ames, Iowa, CYTown has just announced the McFarland Clinic as its first tenant. The multi-use district found at Iowa State University offers countless new additions, including the McFarland Clinic, attracting students, visitors, faculty, employees, and business owners.
The McFarland Clinic, a multi-level medical facility spanning 60,000 square feet, is the first building to be developed at CYTown, and planning is already underway! Situated between the Jack Trice Stadium and Iowa State Center, this facility offers primary and specialty care, as well as urgent care services.
A mutually beneficial move for the university, clinic, and the community, the clinic’s CEO Andrew Perry excitedly explained that the “partnership is a win-win-win” as it improves access to care and creates a positive economic impact for all its stakeholders.
As Iowa’s largest physician-owned, multi-specialty medical group, the McFarland Clinic offers countless benefits to Iowa State University, the city of Ames, and the surrounding community. The clinic elevates the reputation of the city, generates new revenues, and acts as an anchor for CYTown’s future development plans, which include hotels, restaurants, and a possible convention center.
As CYTown’s first tenant, the McFarland Clinic is also part of a community business district that inadvertently gives back to the university it serves as revenues from the total project are to be used to fund refurbishments to many buildings and parking lots within Iowa State University.
The McFarland Clinic is expected to break ground in summer 2024. One thing is for sure: it will be fascinating to see this addition to CYTown serve its community and improve an already fantastic university.
