Cass Health Welcomes Dr. Adam VerhoefOctober 25, 2022
Cass Health is pleased to announce the arrival of Adam Verhoef, MD. As a board-certified Family Medicine physician, Dr. Verhoef provides the full spectrum of care including obstetric care and c-sections.
“I grew up in a town that had a small hospital with family medicine doctors, and I’ve always been really impressed by their ability to do it all. I love to do OB – that’s one of my passions – I also like the inpatient side, emergency medicine, urgent care. Anything that can be done in medicine – I like to do,” he said.
Dr. Verhoef completed his undergraduate degree in Biology and Chemistry at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa. He then attended the Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa, and he completed his Family Medicine Residency in June of 2021 at Prisma Health Richland/University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina.
Obstetric care is a passion of Dr. Verhoef’s, so after residency he was accepted into a fellowship program to further his knowledge and skills. This summer he completed the Advanced OB Fellowship at Swedish Health First Hill Family Medicine in Seattle, Washington.
“You do a lot of good medicine in OB. You really have an impact on people’s lives, especially if you can give them a positive prenatal experience, a positive labor and delivery, and a positive post-partum experience,” he said.
Dr. Verhoef said that he chose Cass Health because it matches the type of medicine he wants to practice. “Rural health has always been my goal, and at Cass Health, it’s a great fit. I can provide meaningful care for my patients, and I can provide safe, comprehensive OB care.”
Originally from Pella, Iowa, Dr. Verhoef grew up in a large family on a dairy farm. He recently purchased a home and moved to Atlantic.
Dr. Verhoef will offer appointments at Atlantic Medical Center, RHC, and he will provide care to hospital and obstetric patients.
