Why did Cedar Rapids create the MedQuarter?

To bring the medical services scattered throughout Cedar Rapids to one medical destination, and to provide a framework for reinvestment and revitalization of downtown Cedar Rapids.

In 2007, the Vision Cedar Rapids Downtown Framework Plan provided a roadmap for future community development. This plan focused on unique districts, one of which was a medical district.

Bringing medical services to one medical destination provides a better patient experience. In addition, restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, entertainment, arts, culture and a variety of services help fill out the Cedar Rapids MedQuarter business mix. Learn more here.
