North Liberty’s wait for top-notch healthcare is nearly over.

The University of Iowa Health Care system’s latest hospital is more than 50 percent complete and on schedule to open in 2025, providing much-needed healthcare access to an expanding market.

The more than $525 million facility sits on 60 acres at the corner of Forevergreen Road and Highway 965 in North Liberty, providing access from I-80 and I-380.

The campus will feature 84 clinic exam rooms, 12 operating rooms, 14 emergency care rooms, two procedure rooms and 36 inpatient beds, plus a unique indoor and outdoor physical therapy space. The facility is a key aspect of the university’s 10-year master plan.

An all-encompassing plan

The North Liberty hospital will be the state’s only comprehensive academic health center when it opens in 2025, including clinic space and teaching and research facilities.

“The North Liberty campus will be a shining example of academic medicine at its best, advancing health care across the state and beyond,” Denise Jamieson said in a release. “These state-of-the-art facilities will allow us to achieve excellence in all parts of our mission: research, education, clinical care, and service to the community.”
