UnityPoint Clinic is the largest primary care and multi-specialty physician group in Iowa, providing care for more than 1,500,000 patient visits annually. The point of unity is you. UnityPoint Health has a vision for health care, and it starts with you: "Best outcome for every patient every time." UnityPoint Clinic provides care across Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin in 8 large geographic regions. Our regions work together and have access to the resources of the UnityPoint Health network and maintain the ability to provide compassionate care to the local community. You will work with your patients to clearly and effectively address their health care in the most appropriate setting: whether that is a clinic, a hospital or at home. Our 24,000 employees, including home care experts, our hospital teams and more than 900 doctors and specialists, focus on your patients care, healthcare concerns and overall health. We are constantly looking for better ways to work together to improve the way healthcare is delivered. You take the lead in your patients care. Connecting with your patient matters to you. Traditionally, patients could feel lost in the connection through the course of an illness or treatment. We are changing that by emphasizing the role of the physician, not just as a healer of individuals but also as a professional team leader. Our vision includes physician leaders who are able to elevate the quality of care for every patient, even for procedures or treatments that are being addressed by other physicians or health care professionals. Which is why we describe our professional culture as "physician-led."
