“We are incredibly proud of our team members, emergency responders and community,” Jenni Friedly, UnityPoint Health-Marshalltown President said in a statement. “Approximately 28 of our team members endured significant damage to their personal property or lost their homes, yet the resilience that has been displayed has been nothing short of amazing. The promise we’ve made to show every person they matter is not a gimmick. It’s our way of life and our team members live it with such compassion and commitment. Thank you to all those who have given and offered support during this disaster. Marshalltown Strong. Together, We Matter.”
