UnityPoint at Home in Fort Dodge, which is gaining a national reputation as one of the state’s top home care agencies, is on the move both physically and as a provider of top quality care.

Before the end of this year, it will move most of its services to a new consolidated location at 214 S. 24th St., just a short distance north of the city’s booming Corridor of Commerce. This new 12,000-square-foot base of operations for the agency is the building previously occupied by Hy-Vee Drugstore. Fort Dodge’s Jensen Builders is renovating the space.

The move will allow the local outlet of UnityPoint at Home to base many of its services at a single site.

“We’ve been looking for several years for a place to relocate and consolidate all of our service lines into one location – home care, hospice and home medical equipment,” said Jennifer Crimmins, executive director of operations/post acute strategy for UnityPoint Health – Fort Dodge.

Crimmins said this arrangement will benefit both her 85-person team and the community.

“I think it will be easier for patients and families who have questions about home care and hospice to be able to drop in and find us,” she said. “I would encourage anyone who is thinking about services, whether it is home care, hospice or medical equipment to give us a call and stop in and have a conversation about it. We really try hard to connect to as many people as we possibly can.”

The three main components of UnityPoint at Home often collaborate to meet diverse patient needs. That’s why being housed in one building will make their work easier, Crimmins said.
