David Brandon, president and CEO of UnityPoint Health-Dubuque (Iowa), is resigning, effective June 1. Mr. Brandon will also leave his position as senior vice president of West Des Moines, Iowa-based UnityPoint Health.

Mr. Brandon is moving back to Indiana, " to be closer to his family," according to an emailed statement from UnityPoint Health. He is considering job opportunities both in and outside of healthcare.
