NOTEBOOK: UnityPoint adds a Hy-Vee grocery locker


Not long after I wrote up a little Insider Notebook item for the April 19 issue about a Sioux City hospital installing a Hy-Vee Aisles grocery locker on-site https://bit.ly/2GVS4fV, I got word from Senior Marketing Communications Specialist AJ Ellingson that UnityPoint Health-Iowa Methodist Medical Center had added a locker of its own. As of press time for the article in the April 19 issue, Hy-Vee didn’t have any Des Moines-area employers participating in the program, but was seeking businesses. UnityPoint is piloting the program in an effort to make it easier for the employees — many of whom work crazy hours — to place orders online and then pick up the groceries from the on-site locker. Via Joyce McDanel, vice president of human resources and education: “We know many of our team members and patients don’t want to stop at the grocery store on their way home from the hospital, so this is a way we can help preserve some of that precious family time and add a convenience to their lives.”
