Methodist West Hospital

Built with Donor Support

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. 

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.

Donors Making a Difference

Compassion Fund - Contributions to this fund provide additional support to patients and families beyond what the hospital is able to provide. Assistance is based on financial need and is designed to respond to the unique needs of patients and families, which can include transportation home for those that are dropped off at the Emergency Department with no way home, meal cards, and one-time prescriptions to help those we serve continue to recover at home. The ability to assist our patients and families that need extra assistance helps them to live the best quality of life while going through treatment. In addition, while much of the assistance is small, it helps to bring peace of mind during a time that is extremely stressful.

Methodist West Care Team Education & Training - Contributions provide continuing education and training for the Methodist West Hospital team to ensure that the care given to patients and families is the best that can be provided.
