About Bethany Grogg, PA-C
Bethany Grogg, PA-C has had a passion for the medical field ever since she was a young child growing up in Brainerd, Minnesota. Before completing her PA program at the University of Iowa, Bethany was an RN on a Cardiothoracic Step-Down unit for three and a half years. During her clinical year of PA school, she spent a significant amount of her time in the operating room with the Cardiothoracic Surgery team. Here is where she found excitement and passion for the patients and their families. She loves knowing that after talking with and supporting them through life-changing surgery and post-op, she has made a direct impact on their lives.
The Iowa Clinic’s sense of community, family and mutual respect that Bethany felt through her many interactions with staff is what brought her to the cardiothoracic team.
Bethany participates in medical mission trips with her church and an organization called World Wide Village, combing her medical skills and passion for helping those less fortunate. On her first trip to Haiti, the team saw a woman who had a terrible infection, which would require amputation. The team was able to provide her the treatment necessary, and on Bethany’s trip back to Haiti, she was able to see this woman again and witness the impact the procedure and her direct care made on the woman’s life.
When she is not working or going on mission medical trips, Bethany enjoys reading and spending time with family.
