CENTERVILLE — Clint Christianson, president of Mercy Medical Center, announces that Jennifer Haden, D.O., will join the Mercy Medical Clinic in August. Haden is a family practice physician who will also deliver babies.
Haden is a graduate of Des Moines University Medical School and completed her family practice residency at Souixland Medical Education Foundation Family Practice in Sioux City.
She obtained a unique perspective on the obstetrics specialty after delivering her own daughter in September 2013, the third year of her residency. “I learned so much from becoming a mother that has made me a better physician," Haden explained.
Haden made the commitment to come to Centerville more than a year ago after she and her husband Matt visited the area several times, even experiencing a Pancake Day weekend. They are both avid hunters and love the outdoor recreational opportunities in southern Iowa.
Haden is looking forward to fostering long-term relationships with her patients and being the physician that they look to first when they need care.
The Hadens will be moving to Centerville in the next month.
