Atlantic, IA —Cass County Health System (CCHS) officials announced today that Bethel Kopp, MD will join the CCHS medical staff in January 2021. Dr. Kopp is an internist who has been in practice for more than 30 years.

Dr. Kopp is a native of Anita, Iowa and a graduate of Creighton University. She has practiced in the Corning area since 1986. Her family includes her husband Dr. Stephen Gruba who is a retired family medicine physician.

Beginning in January, she will provide care for patients at the Massena Medical Center two days each week, and at the Anita Medical Center one day each week. She will also offer telehealth appointments. Dr. Kopp provides care primarily for adults but will also offer appointments for adolescents. In addition to providing care for patients, Dr. Kopp will be teaching part-time at the Creighton University School of Medicine.

“I think the reason that I really enjoy medicine is that it’s one of those things that I look forward to, and I can’t imagine not going to work. It’s not really work! It’s being with people and trying to help. I love that I’ve been able to take care of parents, grandparents, and all the generations in a family,” said Dr. Kopp.

CCHS Chief Clinic Administrator Tammy Bireline echoed Dr. Kopp’s excitement. “Her addition to our team will allow us to enhance access to care for patients living in eastern and southern parts of our service territory. We are very fortunate to welcome her to our family of experienced and skillful clinicians,” she said.

More information about appointments with Dr. Kopp will be available in late December.
