Doctor Leaves Downtown Health Care

June 23, 2010, 5:09 PM by Kelli Grant

Doctor Leaves Downtown Health Care
SIOUX FALLS, SD - In the last 43 years, he's delivered thousands of babies and provided care for just as many women.  Dr. Thomas Looby played an integral part in a state family planning project called Downtown Health Care. But now he's handing over those reigns.

Dr. Looby moved to Sioux Falls in 1972. Since then, he's been invested in the lives of many growing families in KELOLAND, especially through Sanford Clinic Downtown Health Care.

The clinic provides education, health care and family planning help at a discount based on a family's size and income. Since Dr. Looby got involved in the clinic, he's been the medical director. It's a role he's held for nearly 40 years and will hand over in a few short days.

"It's been a calling for anybody who was involved with it to provide service to what basically are younger women and under-served women," Looby said.

Along with stepping away from the clinic, Looby is also stepping away from delivering babies.
