A Message from Leadership

UI Health Care Leadership

With health care changing rapidly in Iowa and the nation and the need to ensure safe, high-quality health care with a commitment to service excellence, it is more important than ever for UI Health Care to reach out, make connections, and build bridges—across our organization and the university, throughout the state, and around the world.

This report features examples of the ways we have been building those bridges and creating those connections—through our patient care, education, and research missions.

The stories in this report represent some of the most important work done in the past year as part of our commitment to serve the people of Iowa and beyond, including:

Building a partnership with three major health systems in Iowa to form the UI Health Alliance. This network of quality providers will serve a substantial portion of the state’s population, improving the health of patients and communities.

Bridging our world-class care from the main campus of UI Hospitals and Clinics to the new primary and specialty care clinics at UI Health Care—Iowa River Landing. Located in Coralville, Iowa, the new facility is expected to eventually accommodate 300,000 clinic visits annually.

Reaching out to rural physicians with a new program in the Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine to educate and train physicians who are committed to serving rural Iowa communities.

Connecting discoveries by UI Health Care research scientists to solutions for some of the world’s most perplexing diseases, including cystic fibrosis, blinding eye disease, and diabetes.

Through these partnerships and the commitment of UI Health Care faculty and staff, we remain extremely confident in our ability to deliver outstanding patient care, research, and education to Iowa and the world.
