Iowa Lutheran Hospital
Iowa Lutheran Hospital exists because of a promise to the community. In the winter of 1908, an accident victim died when a train passing through Des Moines fatally delayed his horse-drawn ambulance trip to a west-side hospital. Concerned friends acted to create a hospital. They promised to provide caring healthcare to their families, friends and community.
Today, Iowa Lutheran Hospital is still providing that same promise to the community. Iowa Lutheran promises to care for the healthcare needs of families, friends and neighbors and to uphold the tradition of excellence while delivering family centered care. ILH promises to "be there" for the community.
Philanthropic dollars help Iowa Lutheran Hospital to continue the tradition of excellence. Your gift will assist us with many of our patient and family needs. Please help us to fulfill our promise to our community.
