Unity Point Health Announces Temporary Cut Backs
UnityPoint Health has announced a temporary reduction in
hours for certain team members, limited furloughs and salary reductions for executives.
Like health systems across the nation, UnityPoint Health hospitals and clinics are facing
unprecedented challenges and volume declines as a result of the global pandemic. As a health
system, we have already taken necessary steps to ensure we emerge from the current situation
in a strong position. This includes pausing elective services, deferring or delaying all capital
projects, reducing unnecessary spending and now, implementing additional workforce changes.
UnityPoint Health determined additional measures were needed to focus resources and
optimize the response to COVID-19. Effective April 26, 2020, the organization is implementing
the following changes:
• Short-term, limited reduction in hours for administrative, support, ancillary and clinical
team members and leaders.
• Reduction in hours available to work or furloughs for those areas that are not operating
at capacity or experiencing closures.
• 15% average reduction in executive pay.
UnityPoint Health is providing resources to affected team members including continuation of
benefits and financial assistance resources where applicable.
