100 Years of Care at Fourth and Reed

UnityPoint Health®–Grinnell Regional Medical Center (GRMC) is celebrating 100 years of health care from our hospital location at Fourth Avenue and Reed Street. Throughout the year, GRMC will reflect on the evolution of health care services throughout the industry and the growth of services at GRMC.

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.

Today, 100 years later, our goal remains the same. “Our core purpose is to improve the health of the people and communities we serve,” says Jennifer Havens, CEO. “GRMC strives to meet the best outcome for every patient, every time. We look forward to the next 100 years of health care and serving our communities. We are truly proud to be your community hospital.”
