We support and encourage the use of social media. These are the terms and conditions guiding the use of our channels.

  • The comments posted by others are not the opinions of UnityPoint Health or our team members.
  • Relevant, respectful discussion, questions and feedback encouraged. Posts we deem offensive, defamatory, spam, inaccurate or otherwise objectionable may be deleted.  No solicitation.
  • Keep in mind, unless it's a private message, your comments are not private.
  • We caution against posting your personal information, such as financial information, insurance numbers or hospital room numbers, that could leave you vulnerable.
  • We can't provide patient-specific information due to federal privacy regulations (HIPAA).
  • The information posted to our social media sites isn't medical advice. Please contact your healthcare provider if you have medical questions.

When using UnityPoint Health social media sites, you’re held to the standards set by each individual channel. You also agree to not engage in the following actions:

  • Defame or personally attack another person.
  • Promote organizations or events not related to the content of the site.
