UnityPoint Health began in Des Moines in 1993, when Iowa Methodist and Iowa Lutheran merged to form Iowa Health System. At the time, the merger created Iowa's largest provider of hospital and related health services. Since then UnityPoint Health has grown to encompass eight major geographic regions in Iowa and Illinois, and includes UnityPoint Clinic and UnityPoint at Home.
