Western Iowa Surgery has served GCH for 7 years. We want to thank Dr. Miller and his colleagues,
Dr. Cheney and Dr. Smith, for their dedicated service to our organization and the patients we serve.

We are confident during this transition from Western Iowa Surgery to Iowa Specialty Surgeons, the
high quality, personal care we strive to deliver, will not be compromised.
