Celebrating 100 Years of Care from 4th Avenue & Reed Street

UnityPoint Health - Grinnell Regional Medical Center: Proud to be your community hospital.

We had a great time celebrating 100 years of health care from our medical center location at 4th Avenue and Reed Street in Grinnell throughout 2019!

In August of 1919, the Community Hospital opened their doors in our current location to better serve the Grinnell area. The 35-bed hospital included medical and surgical wards as well as maternity and pediatric rooms.
