Meriter becomes UnityPoint Health – Meriter

Two years after its affiliation with UnityPoint Health, Meriter is changing its name to UnityPoint Health – Meriter, the organization has announced.

The name UnityPoint Health – Meriter applies to its hospital, clinics, and Foundation and marks a milestone within Meriter’s integration into the UnityPoint Health system. Funds donated to the Foundation will continue to remain local.

Also due to the integration, Meriter Home Health will now be called UnityPoint at Home, as it officially joins the UnityPoint Health home care division.

Patients can continue to see their current doctors and receive local care at clinics throughout Dane County. Exterior signage at most facilities will be updated over the next few months, and the external website, meriter.com, will become unitypoint.org on Jan. 6.

UnityPoint Health – Meriter began its integration with UnityPoint Health in 2014. UnityPoint Health, based in West Des Moines, Iowa, operates in Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin and includes more than 30,000 employees, 280 physician clinics, and 32 hospitals.
