UnityPoint Health Transfer Center

UnityPoint Health - Des Moines' state of the art Transfer Center is staffed by trained medical professionals,  available 24-hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week to streamline the process for transferring and admitting patients to Iowa Methodist Medical Center, Iowa Lutheran Hospital, Methodist West Hospital and Blank Children's Hospital.

Why a Transfer Center?

The UnityPoint Health Transfer will get emergent patients into Methodist, Lutheran, Methodist West or Blank Children's with just one phone call.

By calling 515-241-6200 or 800-806-1787  it puts the referring hospital or physician office in contact with an experienced transfer coordinator who will get the patient transferred or admitted to one of our hospitals quickly and efficiently.

The Transfer Center handles the complete transfer process:

  • Consultation with the accepting physician specialists
  • Arranging for a patient bed
  • Communicating with nursing
  • Arranging for patient; transport (ground or air) 
  • All other transfer needs

The goal is to ensure continuity of care for the patient. And if for some reason there is a delay, the center keeps all parties informed every step of the way.
