2016 Partners in Unity Dinner

The 2016 Partners In Unity Dinner was held on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 to recognize the major donors who supported UnityPoint Health in 2016. At this time we also honored the annual and lifetime Partners In Unity donors as well as members of the Legacy Society.

The evening was filled with great food, lively conversation and even a few laughs. We also had the privilege to present the Dr. Ward H. Eastman Award, the Merle Yontz Leadership Award and the Henry Allovio, Jr. Leadership Award.

This year’s award recipients were honored and humbled to receive these awards. The Dr. Ward Eastman Award was presented to Dr. Brian Cohen. This award honors a physician who has demonstrated enthusiastic commitment to their patients and UnityPoint Health.

The Merle Yontz Leadership Award was presented to Jamie Stevenson. Jamie chairs the Methodist Health Services Corporation Board of Directors. This award recognizes a member of the Partners In Unity Society whose history of support distinguishes them as a person who demonstrates the attributes of charitable giving and service to others.

The Henry Allovio, Jr. Leadership Award was presented to Ron Miller. Ron chairs the UnityPoint Health – Pekin Board of Directors. This award honors a person whose contributions to UnityPoint Health have resulted in improvements in the quality of healthcare.

These people join a long list of individuals and organizations who have made a significant difference in the lives of the people we care for at UnityPoint Health. A sincere thanks to all those who supported the Foundation in 2016 to make our success possible and we look forward to working with you to help us ensure the Best Outcome Every Patient Every Time in 2017.
