UnityPoint Health has been recognized again as one of the top places to work in healthcare in the country by a national industry publication. 

The health system, based in West Des Moines with operations in the Quad Cities region, announced in a news release Thursday, April 11, that Becker’s Healthcare included UnityPoint Health on its 2024 list of “150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare.”

The list highlights hospitals, health systems and healthcare companies that prioritize workplace excellence and the happiness, satisfaction, wellbeing, and fulfillment of their employees. 

UnityPoint Health, which provides care across Iowa, western Illinois and southern Wisconsin, is  the only health system headquartered in Iowa to be named to this year’s list and one of only a  handful of health systems in Illinois and Wisconsin to be included. 

“It’s truly an honor to be recognized as a top place to work in healthcare for the third  consecutive year,” UnityPoint Health Chief Administrative Officer Jessica Meisner said in the release. “We continue to have a strong commitment to our culture and team members and this recognition is affirmation of that ongoing effort across our organization.” 

In naming UnityPoint Health to this year’s list, Becker’s Healthcare said “(UnityPoint Health)  utilizes engagement channels for team members to share information, network and explore  opportunities to improve overall team member experience. The feedback is then used to identify  improvement opportunities for all team members. Advancing talent and culture is at the center  of UnityPoint’s strategy, and it works to offer best-in-class career experiences by recruiting and  hiring diverse talent and supporting team member growth.” 

In addition to the top place to work recognition, UnityPoint Health has also been named a top employer by Forbes (three times) and by the West Des Moines Chamber of Commerce since 2021.  

UnityPoint Health has relationships with more than 370 physician clinics, 17 regional and 19 community network hospitals, five community mental health centers, three accredited colleges and home care services throughout its eight markets. Its entities employ more than 30,000 employees. To search for open career opportunities, visit unitypoint.org/joinourteam
