Life is Moving
A Message From Our President/CEO
Summer is here; the kids are out of school, the grass is green, and the trees are lush. With the new season comes warm sunshine, wonderful outdoor cooking, and quality time spent outside. Summer is a transition time at Steindler. We move from the slip and falls of the Iowa winters to the activity-based injuries since outdoor events and adventures are in full swing. Dr. Curley retired from practice as of June 1 after eight years with Steindler. We wish him well as he ends his long-term medical practice to enjoy more time with his family and friends. Summer brings a variety of festivals, outdoor concerts, and gatherings in the Iowa City area. RAGBRAI is just around the corner and this is a milestone year as it will pass right by Kinnick Stadium. Get outside, but stay safe in all your activities and enjoy the beautiful Iowa spring and summer.
