The mission of Meriter Foundation is to raise, invest, grant and steward gifts to ensure the best possible health outcomes for our patients, families and the communities served by Meriter Health Services. We carry out this mission by supporting excellence in clinical quality, safety and service. We support efforts that ensure access to quality care for patients of all income levels and programs that empower patients to take an active role in managing their health and well being.
Our vision is to continually enhance the health care environment for our patients and community.
Imagine. Inspire. Invest… Achieve.
We are excited to share that Meriter Health Services has signed an affiliation agreement with UnityPoint Health*, an integrated health system based in West Des Moines, Iowa. Meriter Foundation will continue to operate as it does today - supporting patient care programs, expanding access to services and building relationships with our patients for a lifetime of care. We will continue to manage and steward the gifts of our generous donors with the same integrity and ethical stewardship, just as we've always done. We will maintain complete control and autonomy over all gifts that come to Meriter. Donor intent will continue to be the guiding principle from which we have always operated. All past, present and future gifts made to Meriter Foundation will be used to support Meriter Hospital, its clinics and community programs, right here in Madison. We are honored by the confidence you have entrusted to us and we look forward to an exciting year ahead.
