It is with great excitement and pleasure that Meriter Health System
announces its plans to formally affiliate with UnityPoint Health - an
innovative and nationally-recognized health system based in Iowa.
We hope the transaction will be complete in the new year, pending
review and approval by appropriate government agencies.
This is fantastic news for our patients, our insurance members, our
employees and the entire community. UnityPoint Health’s vision of
the best outcome for every patient every time and its community-
based focus ensures that Meriter will continue to flourish for
generations to come.
Through this affiliation, Meriter will remain an independent,
community-based health care organization, but with the added
resources of a regional system. Physicians Plus will have the opportunity
to grow in strength and geographic coverage.
We are committed to this community. Meriter patients and Physicians
Plus members will still see their doctors and receive care locally - just
It is our goal to be as transparent as possible throughout this
process. We encourage you to review the information on this site and
submit questions. We will continually update information and FAQs
over the coming months.
This is an exciting time for all of us. We are truly looking forward
to the future and continuing to serve you.
Sincerely,Jim Woodward Ginny Graves
