Our History

Mississippi Valley Surgery Center (MVSC) opened its doors in 1996, supported by a small group of local physicians with the goal of providing a convenient and patient-centered facility for outpatient surgical services.  Mississippi Valley Endoscopy Center on Utica Ridge Road in Davenport, was established in 2004. This location is dedicated to performing colonoscopy, esophageal endoscopy and other gastrointestinal procedures.

Today we perform approximately 9,000 procedures a year at our two facilities and employ approximately 110 staff – including both clinical and non-clinical personnel – under the direction of a physician lead Board of Directors.
