According to rankings just released by the Lown Institute, UnityPoint Health – Marshalltown ranks fifth in the state of Iowa based on a combination of civic leadership, value of care and quality of care.

The rankings are part of a bigger study by the Lown Institute, which assessed nearly 3,330 hospitals nationwide on 42 performance indicators. The assessment measured outcomes in three categories:

  • Civic leadership, which assesses a commitment to equity, inclusion and community health.
  • Value of care, which measures use of unnecessary services.
  • Quality of care, which evaluates patient outcomes, safety and satisfaction.

"At a time when communities are relying on them like never before, hospitals must rethink what it means to be great,” said Dr. Vikas Saini, president of the Lown Institute. “COVID-19 highlights how hospitals are essential community partners for anyone in need. To be great, however, a hospital cannot only provide care that’s high in quality. It must also deliver value and advance equality. Our index is designed to help them do just that.”
