UnityPoint Health - Des Moines

Methodist West Hospital

In October 2009, Methodist West Hospital celebrated its opening, expanding the services of UnityPoint Health - Des Moines to West Des Moines. Since then, physicians along with other medical providers at Methodist West have taken remarkable strides, quickly establishing the hospital as a "go-to" destination for medical care. Methodist West is dedicated to providing residents of Greater Des Moines with high-quality healthcare across the spectrum of medical specialties. 

Methodist West works closely with Des Moines Orthopaedic Surgeons (DMOS) in order to provide patients with the very best care. This experienced group of surgeons was the first in the state of Iowa to perform a total knee replacement. The Orthopaedic Center of Excellence at Methodist West and Iowa Methodist perform more orthopaedic surgeries in Iowa than any other hospital system. 

In addition, Methodist West offers experienced staff and 24/7 on-staff neonatal support in partnership with Blank Children's Hospital. It is the first and only hospital in central Iowa to employ Patient Care Facilitators. Its surgery department contains 14 private pre-operative rooms, six leading edge operating rooms, a cardiovascular catheterization lab, and an endoscopy suite.

Methodist West is dedicated to providing each patient and their family with personal attention, so that they are made as comfortable as possible from time of admission until release.
