Hansen Family Hospital

Hansen Family Hospital is located on South Oak Street in Iowa Falls. The new facility was opened in April 2014.

Visitors to Hansen Family Hospital’s Emergency Department will soon see some changes as work is set to begin on a renovation project intended to make the area safer for staff and patients. This week, the hospital's board of trustees awarded a contract for the work, which will cost $848,700.

For months, the hospital has been working with architects at Bergland & Cram of Mason City to redesign the space for safety. In recent years, the frequency of violent incidents has increased. A 2018 survey by the American College of Emergency Physicians and the Emergency Nurses Association found that 70 percent of emergency nurses said they’d been hit and kicked on the job, and 47 percent of emergency physicians said they’d been assaulted.
