Waverly, IA-In January, the Waverly Chamber of Commerce visited three Waverly businesses and presented three Progress Awards.

State Bank recently hired James Perry as a Mortgage and Consumer Loan Officer at their downtown Waverly office, 311 16th Avenue SW. Perry was a 2009 graduate of Waverly-Shell Rock High School and a 2013 graduate from the University of Northern Iowa. Most recently, James was a Mortgage Loan Banker in Waterloo and is a current member of the Waverly Exchange Club. “I’m extremely happy to join this wonderful team at State Bank,” Perry said. “I look forward to serving our community and helping Waverly grow and prosper.” State Bank is an independent and locally-owner bank with eight locations in Northeast Iowa and prides itself on being community minded and customer focused.

The Waverly Health Center recently relocated their Walk-In Clinic to the third floor of the hospital in a newly-renovated clinic space on January 2nd. The move enabled the Waverly Health Center to offer daytime hours every day. The clinic is located on the southwest corner of the hospital. The new clinic hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-7:30 p.m., Saturday & Sunday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and holidays, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. (closed Christmas Day). To help you get care when you need it, Waverly Health Center offers a Walk-In Clinic. The purpose of the Walk-In Clinic is to compliment the care you receive from you primary care provider by offering same-day care when your regular provider is not available. The Walk-In Clinic provides high-quality care for medical conditions that are not life-threatening for people of all ages. Examples of services offered at the Waverly Health Center Walk-In Clinic: common, non-life threatening illness of children and adults, cold and flu care, minor cuts needing stitches, sprains, strains and simple fractures, earache, sore throat and cough, bladder infections and asthma and breathing treatments.

Midwest Dental recently added a second dental provider to their team. Dr. Jordan Otto joined Dr. Bryan Horak in early July. Otto joins the Midwest Dental team as a general dentist, after receiving his degrees (BS in Chemistry and Biology and DDS) from Creighton University in Omaha, Neb. A native of Lake City, Iowa, Otto is excited to be back in a small town. “Everybody’s been welcoming me with open arms, and has made it a very easy adjustment,” Otto said in a Waverly Newspapers article. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Otto, call Midwest Dental at (319) 352-5222 or visit the clinic at 1400 10th Ave. SW, Waverly. Otto says his personal statement is, “to me, dentistry means caring for my patients. I love being able to use my knowledge and skills to not only improve my patient’s smile, but also improve their quality of life.”
