Iowa Methodist Surgery Center

State-of-the-art Surgical Center at Iowa Methodist Medical Center

We have recently completed a new surgery center for Iowa Methodist - a surgery and cardiovascular Center of Excellence that touches the lives of more than 20,000 Iowa families a year. This ongoing $19 million project was a substantial reinvestment in our downtown campus and a vital step to meet the future health needs of our community.

The new Iowa Methodist surgery center features:

  • Separation of adult and pediatric patients, acute and non-acute patients 
  • Improved efficiency of operations and patient flow 
  • Improved patient and family amenities, adult and pediatric 
  • Enhanced patient confidentiality and privacy 
  • Additional operating room capacity, including provision for additional minimally-invasive surgery technology 
  • Improved patient access on the East side of campus
