Our Community. Our Health Care.
Come Build with Us!
A thriving local hospital is at the heart of a healthy community.
UnityPoint Health has spent the past four years transforming the model of care in Marshalltown to be more sustainable, while ensuring that primary care will thrive and emergency care will remain close to home. Our commitment to the community included the decision to build a new hospital with a $38.4 million expansion of the existing medical park by spring 2022.
In addition, local leadership was established with Shari King as Administrator and Jen Arneson as Director of Nursing. Also, UnityPoint Express, the walk-in urgent care clinic, is building a new facility that will be more centrally located.
Quality Care, Close to Home
The expanded hospital consists of three additions to the medical park and will be conveniently located at the intersection of highways 14 and 30:
- Hospital Addition – this addition will create a 65,000-square-foot hospital space over two floors. It will feature a 16-bed med-surg unit, a 12-bed emergency department and a four-bed observation unit.
- Clinic Addition – this addition will be 23,000 square feet and house two clinics: Marshalltown family medicine and multi-specialty (offering services like cardiology, orthopedics, urology, women's health and more).
- EMS Building – this free-standing garage will be 5,000 square feet and house a fleet of five ambulances and support staff.
We Need Your Support
Now, your non-profit local hospital invites the community's support in more ways than one. First, we're asking people to keep their care local whenever possible. Choosing local for primary care, specialty care, inpatient services and surgical services whenever possible matters for today and for the generations to come. Second, we're inviting the community to consider investing their time, talent and treasure in this once-in-a-century revitalization project.
