My Well-Being

Programs, activities and resources designed to enhance physical, financial and emotional well-being.

Paid Time Off (PTO)

UnityPoint Health PTO plans across the organization are a simple, easy to use plan. All benefit eligible team members accrue PTO into one account that will combine vacation, individual sick days, holidays and personal days in order to give you maximum flexibility in scheduling time away from work. Providers should refer to their employment agreement for details surrounding their time off.

Note: Dubuque Team Members should refer to their local policies or the available benefit guides.

Years of Service CompletedPTO Accrued per HourMaximum Accrual*Maximum Carryover
0-40.0923192 hours / 24 days320
5-90.1115232 hours / 29 days320
10-140.1231256 hours / 32 days320
15-190.1346280 hours / 35 days320
20+0.1385288 hours / 36 days320

* Maximum accrual is based on the first 80 hours paid per pay period and 2,080 hours paid annually.

** To calculate your PTO accrual per pay period, multiply the “PTO Accrued per Hour” number above by the number of hours you are paid per pay period. For example, if you have 16 years of service and are a .75 FTE or are paid 60 hours per pay period, your calculation would be as follows: .1346 x 60 = 8.07 accrued hours in a pay period.

*** The six recognized holidays are New year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

EAP provides team members with support to manage the stress and challenges of life including counseling sessions, health & wellness discount programs, local support services and other resources.

Paid Parental Leave (PPL) Program:
UnityPoint Health believes it is important to support team members, both women and men, as they balance their work with the wonderful but challenging role of becoming parents, or as their families grow. Therefore, all full-time benefit eligible team members receive one week of 100% paid parental leave when they serve as a primary caregiver following the birth or adoption of a child. This benefit provides broad coverage that includes either the mother or father and both natural birth and adoption.

Bereavement Leave:
UnityPoint Health has aligned to a single Bereavement Leave policy across the system. In the event that a benefit-eligible team member experiences the death of a family member, UnityPoint Health will provide between one and five days off with pay to grieve, make arrangements due to the family member’s death, or attend the funeral. The amount of time provided is determined by the relationship to the family member.

Jury Duty:
UnityPoint Health has also aligned to a single Jury Duty policy across the system. In the event that a benefit-eligible team member is selected for jury duty, UnityPoint Health will allow team members to receive their regular rate of pay for scheduled time lost. Team members can also retain any money received from the courts for serving as a juror or a witness.
