Social Media Public Guidelines

UnityPoint Health® supports and encourages the use of social media. Below are the terms and conditions guiding the use of channels run by our organization.*

The comments posted by others are not the opinions of UnityPoint Health or its team members. We reserve the right to edit or delete posts, if deemed necessary or offensive. 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.

UnityPoint Health can't provide patient-specific information due to federal privacy regulations (HIPAA). The information posted to our social media sites is not medical advice and you should contact your health care provider if you have medical questions.

When using UnityPoint Health social media sites, you will be upheld to the standards set by each individual channel. You also agree you will NOT do the following:

  • Defame or personally attack another person
  • Promote organizations or events not related to the content of the site
  • Release private, patient health information

As employees, we are held to an even higher standard. Please view our employee Social Media Policy on the Hub.

*The terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.
