SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

The city of Sioux City is recognizing a local hospital for its investment in the area. UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's today received the Growing Sioux City Award, which honors businesses for their local support.

The hospital built a new medical outpatient clinic in 2012, expanding its services to the growing Sunnybrook area.

"Our vision for this building is to put providers in one spot that convenient for patients and families. And also to, hopefully over time, reduce expense and improve service and quality by being under one roof," said UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's CEO Peter Thoreen.

The Sunnybrook location made it possible for UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's to create over 100 new jobs.

"We're very grateful for everything that's taken place here. We're excited about all the people that are coming into Sioux City now to be here and to use this facility. We are very grateful for all the healthcare providers that are here," said Marty Dougherty, economic development director for the city of Sioux City.

In honor of the award, a tree will be planted on site, signifying the company's commitment to growth in Sioux City.
