Pre-Employment Process

For New Hires

Congratulations! We're excited that you are joining the UnityPoint Health – Meriter family! To make the coming weeks as easy as possible, we've included information below on employee orientation and the steps you need to take before your first day at work.

Prior to Your First Day

Schedule a Pre-employment Health Assessment with Employee Health

All employees must be screened by Employee Health before beginning to work. This includes a post-offer, pre-employment drug screening and health assessment. The length of your health assessment will vary depending on the amount of contact you will have with patients. At the time of your offer, you should have been connected to Employee Health to schedule your appointments. If you need to reach them, please contact Employee Health at (608) 417-6158.

Have Your Employee ID Photo Taken

After completing your Health Assessment, you can have your employee photo taken in Guest Services in the Meriter Hospital lobby. Photo services are available 10 am – 2 pm, Monday-Friday. If you are unable to visit Guest Services during these times, please contact (608) 417-6276 to make arrangements.

Receive your Parking Assignment

After you've had your photo taken, please talk to Guest Services about your parking assignment.

Complete New Hire Paperwork

You will receive an email from your Recruitment Partner with your new hire paperwork. Please print, review, and complete. These documents, along with proof of education level obtained, should be turned into Human Resources at the Meriter Business Center at least one week prior to your start date. If you do not have access to a printer, the forms will be available when you come to the Human Resources Department.

If you did not receive your forms, please contact your Recruitment Partner.

Choose your Primary Care Provider 

At Meriter, we want to ensure our employees have access to our topnotch doctors and clinics in order to maintain their own health. Scheduling a free Meet and Greet with a Meriter primary care physician for you and your family is the first step. For more information on the financial benefits of using a Meriter physician, please visit the benefits section.

On Your First Day

We provide organization-wide orientations to help new employees learn about our organization. You will be scheduled for orientation either on your first day of the job, or in the first two weeks of employment. You should have received a schedule and information about your orientation prior to your first day of work. If not, please call Human Resources at (608) 417-6291. Please make sure to contact your supervisor regarding your work schedule before you attend this orientation training.

Please note the following about orientation:

  • Orientation begins promptly - please allow enough time for finding parking and checking in.
  • Dress for orientation is business casual.
  • Orientation is held at the Meriter Business Center
