WEST DES MOINES, Iowa– UnityPoint Health earned nine national healthcare advertising awards in 2021 for a talk show version of their award-winning kid ambassador video series and a talent recruitment marketing campaign.

UnityPoint Health, an integrated healthcare system, with a footprint across Iowa, western Illinois, and southern Wisconsin, won four gold, two silver, one bronze, and two merit awards from the 39th Annual Healthcare Advertising Awards. The competition is the nation’s largest health care advertising awards program and had more than 4,400 entries in 2021.

Five awards recognized UnityPoint Health’s “Not So Late Show with Austin” marketing campaign, a short series of streaming talk shows featuring UnityPoint Health’s brand ambassador, Austin, a young boy introduced by the health system in September 2020. Two other videos featuring Austin also picked up awards in 2021, a video message asking consumers to show kindness to healthcare workers, and a holiday video highlighting spreading joy to everyone. This is the second straight year UnityPoint Health’s kid ambassador video series has won national recognition.

UnityPoint Health also won a gold and merit award for their 2021 “Day in the Life” talent recruitment video and online ad, respectively.

“We’re extremely honored to receive these recognitions,” said UnityPoint Health’s Chief Marketing and Communications Officer and Senior Vice President Mallary McKinney: “Health care organizations have had an important role the last two years in providing information to help our communities stay safe and healthy. We’re proud that our messaging has been memorable and impactful for our patients and individuals in the communities we serve.”
