St. Luke’s Health Memorial Clinics Livingston hosted a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on September 2, 2015, for its new on-site clinic for residents of the Escapees CARE community in Polk County.
The new clinic is a separate entity and is designed to complement services provided by Escapees CARE (Continuing Assistance for Retired Escapees), a program whose mission is to provide a safe haven with professional assistance at affordable prices for members whose travels are impacted because of age or temporarily interrupted because of health problems.
The clinic is housed in a former residence on the property that has been renovated to meet their needs.
Francis (Dusty) Peterson, a family nurse practitioner, will oversee the clinic under the medical direction of Dr. David Le who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult and adolescent patients. Both Peterson and Le are with Memorial Clinics.
