Meriter-UnityPoint Health Affiliation
Meriter Health Services is now part of UnityPoint Health, an integrated health system based in West Des Moines, Iowa. Meriter Foundation will continue to operate as it has always done - supporting patient care programs, expanding access to services and building relationships with our patients for a lifetime of care. Meriter Foundation maintains complete control and autonomy over all gifts. Donor intent will continue to be the guiding principle by which we operate. 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.
