UCS Healthcare 2022 Annual Report

February 28, 2023


From the Desk of Jen Pearson, CEO of UCS Healthcare


Thank you for joining me on this journey of growth and progress at UCS Healthcare. Our teams have made great strides toward building a brighter future, and we are well-positioned to achieve ambitious goals.


We look forward to continuing our positive momentum this year and are already making strides toward achieving our goals. Our team has identified several focus areas that will enable us to expand our reach, bring our health solutions to more Iowans, create an improved experience for our clients, remain competitive in the market, and create even more value for customers.


First, we plan on implementing new care and client support technology. As we continue to grow, we realized we were pushing our existing system to the limit. The new system and technology will be implemented during the Spring. We look forward to greater flexibility, faster access, and improved security for our patient records.


Second, we are investing in expanding our care to more Iowans. One example is our Mobile Healthcare Unit, which was put into service in 2022. During one of its first stops, UCS professionals provided a lifesaving dose of naloxone to reverse an overdose. We continue researching ways to offer our Medication-Assisted Treatment solutions via our Mobile Unit.


Finally, we will focus on leveraging emerging trends in harm reduction. This includes public awareness, education, and working with our partners across the state to build on the many successes we are experiencing in mental health counseling, substance use prevention, our successful support groups, and expanded treatment options.


The actual 'magic' at UCS is the people who work to bring the best treatment and treatment options to our patients. We are happy to report that even through a challenging labor market, we have recruited and hired top-caliber candidates.


As we look ahead to the future, I'm confident that with focus and dedication, we can continue building UCS Healthcare's success by creating innovative treatment solutions that better serve our clients and make a lasting impact in the communities we serve.


Thank you for your continued support and interest in our mission. I am excited to build upon our 25 years of success and look forward to a successful year for our organization and clients.
