Understanding Our Levels of Patient Care

"Level of care" is a shorthand used to describe the type and intensity of medical care you will receive. The determination of your level of care is made by you and your family, the admitting facility and/or physician and insurance provider. YOU are on our team, and it's important to understand the different levels of each care that provides specialized treatment, care, services and equipment. 

During your time with us, you may receive one level of care, or transition to a different level depending on your condition.  Learn more about the levels of care that you have access to here at UnityPoint Health – Des Moines including: Rehabilitation, Skilled Nursing, Home Health Agencies and Outpatient Rehabilitation. We strive to bring the best outcome for every patient, every time, with our patient-centered and physician-driven system of care.
