Why Innovate?

Innovation is especially essential to our ever-changing industry. It's not a side gig, a project or a distraction. It's about creating a culture, a learning organization, where team members are celebrated for their creativity and for trying new ways of doing things. It's a constant drive to improve -- to achieve the best outcomes, deliver the highest quality of care and provide an experience unique to UnityPoint Health.

We know you have ideas, so we're doing something about it. You bring your idea, and we'll bring the support. Let's shake things up, try new things and learn from our successes and our failures. Let's lead the transformation we know our industry needs instead of being disrupted by it. Our communities and patients need this. And so do we.


Your role is crucial in achieving the best outcome for every patient every time. Through innovations, we can exceed even our own high expectations.

Our common goals are clear:

If you have an idea, but aren't sure where it fits, submit it anyway and we'll figure out how it fits.

The Innovation Center was created to help turn your ideas into innovations that impact our organization and the health care industry. The simplest ideas can lead to innovation and can have a tremendous impact on achieving and exceeding our goals, so every idea is welcome. The Innovation Center is a space that inspires you to think, and then supports the realization of that thinking. Keep an eye out for upcoming challenges that can impact the people we serve. You could even find your name on a patent!
