Story Medical to Sell Zearing Clinic Facility to City of Zearing

With a long history of collaboration, Story County Medical Center (Story Medical) and the City of Zearing (City) are announcing plans for the City to purchase from Story Medical the existing clinic facility in Zearing. The target date for completion of this transaction is June 30, 2018.

Upon transfer of ownership, the City will work with a new provider group to establish a primary care practice in the community. Story Medical is working in collaboration with the City to make this transition as smooth as possible and to ensure that the people of northeast Story County continue to have convenient access to high quality, primary healthcare services.

“The physicians and staff of Story Medical are committed to coordinating care with Zearing’s new primary care team to offer as many options as possible for the people of northeast Story County to access advanced care and specialized services close to home,” says Story Medical CEO, Nate Thompson. “The Trustees and leadership of Story Medical look forward to supporting the City of Zearing during this transition and in its new primary care partnership.”

The current Story Medical Clinic – Zearing provider, Rachel Frederick, PA-C, will relocate her practice to Story Medical Clinic – Nevada, along with her existing care team. For those patients interested in continuing to see Rachel in Nevada, no additional action is required. All medical records will be transferred, and a staff member from Story Medical Clinic – Nevada will reach out to confirm appointments that have already been scheduled. Rachel will begin seeing patients in Nevada on Monday, July 9.

“I am joined by my many neighbors here in Zearing as we welcome a new chapter for the community,” says Mayor Martin Herr. “With this transition, I believe we can establish an approach to local medical care that will serve many people in the region into the next decade.”
