Clarke County Hospital to Acquire UnityPoint Clinic Family Medicine - Clarke County
Effective July 1, 2019, Clarke County Hospital (CCH) will acquire ownership of the UnityPoint Clinic Family Medicine - Clarke County currently located inside the hospital. Clarke County Hospital has been affiliated with UnityPoint Health Des Moines since 1984. The close relationship between the two organizations has provided this opportunity that will ensure the availability of quality healthcare locally for years to come.
The change aligns with Clarke County Hospital’s strategic plan to strengthen access to care and services for the Clarke County community.
“We are excited to be able to work with the excellent providers and staff within the UnityPoint Clinic Family Medicine - Clarke County and have them as part of the Clarke County Hospital family. For the patients, the change in ownership will be seamless,” said Brian Evans, Clarke County Hospital CEO.
The clinic will remain in its current location and will also continue to accept the same insurances.
The current UnityPoint Clinic will not close in the interim and is still accepting patients.
CCH will also continue to operate its weekend walk-in clinic on Saturdays and Sundays.
