Living in Central Iowa

Our Community

Mary Greeley serves a multi-county area of central Iowa and our employees live in communities through this region. Our patient-centered culture is shaped by the fact that we know we are caring for our family, friends, and neighbors.

Mary Greeley is located in Ames, Iowa, home to Iowa State University.  A major research university, Iowa State has diverse annual enrollment of more than 30,000 students, a beautiful campus, and a thriving research park. The university contributes significantly to the economic vitality of the area, as well as to its cultural opportunities.

Ames is consistently rated by national publications as one of the best communities to visit, live, work and go to school. With a population of just over 50,000, Ames prides itself on being a “smart choice” based on the quality of the Ames Community School District, and the city’s parks and bike paths, recreational and cultural opportunities, and award-winning public transit system.

Beyond Ames, the region served by Mary Greeley features communities of varying sizes. These are tight, committed communities that proudly hold annual festivals that draw people from throughout the area.

Residents of many of these communities are served by McFarland Clinic. Mary Greeley and McFarland Clinic have a strong partnership that ensures quality care for central Iowans.

Another advantage to living and working in this region is the proximity to Des Moines, the state’s vibrant capital which is just a 45-minute drive from Ames.
