Provider Orientation Online

The Wheaton Franciscan System is committed to living out the healing ministry of the Judeo-Christian tradition by providing exceptional and compassionate health care service that promotes the dignity and well being of the people we serve. We are pleased that you have requested to join us in this mission.

This site is intended to serve as a mandatory orientation for Physician and Allied Health Professional Providers who are actively in the process of applying for membership, clinical privileges, and/or nursing scope of practice at any of the Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare – Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. The online format was designed so applicants could complete the orientation at a convenient time.

In addition to the online orientation, applicants (who have been granted membership, clinical privileges, and/or nursing scope of practice) are invited to receive an onsite orientation and tour. To schedule, please contact Dana Derflinger, Manager of Medical Affairs, at 319-272-7363.
