Iowa Methodist Medical Center

100 years of service to our community

From the time Iowa Methodist Hospital opened its doors in a red brick building January 16, 1901, affording beds for 30 patients, the center has expanded greatly.  Its growth, in physical buildings, in services to an ever-enlarging community, in scientific and technological development, and as and educational center for those in health professions has paralleled the growth in the twenty first century of the field of medicine and healthcare.

One hundred years of healing would not have been possible without the dedication and support of our community of friends.  Philanthropy (the gift of time, talent or resources) is an integral part of the soul of IMMC. If not for the undying generosity of individuals and organizations, we could and would not exist as we do today.   Your support can be used in many ways: Rehabilitation medicine, cancer care and research, patient and family assistance, capital equipment acquisition, education, cardiac care, and other areas of interest.
