About MedQ

MedQ - MedQuarter Regional Medical District LogoThe MedQuarter (short for MedQuarter Regional Medical District) is a revitalization partnership committed to promoting a dynamic urban medical community to improve quality of life and advocate for new businesses and jobs in a defined medical district.

Established in 2011, we support a 55-square-block area in downtown that makes getting healthcare less of a chore and more of a destination. From Mercy Medical Center to UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Hospital, and everything in between, we challenge you to find an errand you can’t run while you’re in the MedQuarter.

MedQ Development

The Institute for Health Care Improvement named Cedar Rapids one of the top 10 cities in the nation that delivers high quality, low cost health care.

Our desire is to continue building our medical excellence and develop a nationally recognized medical destination. That’s why we appointed a Medical Self-Supported Municipal Improvement District Commission (Medical SSMID Commission) to establish funding for future improvements for the district.
