Current Projects and Funds

The Broadlawns Medical Center Foundation has been committed to raising both community 

awareness and support for Broadlawns Medical Center.  Broadlawns Medical Center is the community hospital serving the most vulnerable population in our community for almost 90 years.

The last several years the Broadlawns Medical Center Foundation has been focusing on two major projects that will benefit the Greater Des Moines community:


The Family Birthing Center at Broadlawns Medical Center

Broadlawns' long-range goal is to have all clinical areas for children updated and child friendly to foster an environment that is welcoming and calming to the children and families where they can receive cost-effective, high-quality health care services.

Renovating the existing FBC to provide larger labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum (LDRP) rooms, will provide more privacy around the nurses' station and better flow between the nurses' station and the nursery.

Mental Health Facilities

  • Broadlawn's inpatient mental health beds are at 98% capacity and the community need  is great. Broadlawns is the one of the largest providers of mental health care services, and we want to rise to meet this need.
  • Our Outpatient Mental Health Services has grown and is currently located in many different locations within the hospital. We are planning to build an Outpatient Mental Health Clinic that centralizes all of these services as well as expand these services.

Attention Broadlawns Alumni -The Family Medicine Residency Housing and Transitional Year Programs.

Broadlawns Medical Center has some exciting news about the Family Medicine Residency 

Housing.  For many of you the Residency Housing brings back fond memories of friendship, fellowship and support.

The current apartments are between 40 and 63 years old and are in need of replacement.  We are excited today to let you know that we are launching capital campaign to replace them.

Broadlawns medical center will be supporting our efforts with $3 million dollars towards this project and our goal is to raise a total of  $5 million dollars.  For many of you these apartments were your home for three years and once you left them you began your career in Medicine.

We are reaching out to you today to ask that you consider supporting this project with a gift.  Your gift would support the Residency Program for years to come and pave the way for future Iowa Family Medicine Physicians,
