Distinguished Young Alumnus
Kyle M. Wilcox was born and raised in Des Moines and attended Holy Trinity Catholic School and Dowling Catholic School, graduating in 2004. During his time at Dowling Catholic, he lettered in football and was named a Class 4-A First-Team All-State offensive lineman. He earned an athletic scholarship to the University of Northern Iowa and a transfer scholarship to the University of Iowa where he went on to receive his B.A. in Health and Sport Studies and his Master of Health Administration.
After graduate school, Kyle received a post-graduate fellowship at Grinnell Regional Medical Center. He is a board-certified Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and a board-certified Fellow of the Healthcare Financial Management Association.
After a decade of service in Grinnell, he now serves as the Vice President of Finance & Operations. Over this period, Kyle has helped oversee the growth, financial stabilization and ultimately the integration of a previously private hospital into the UnityPoint Health system. Throughout this time, he has also served as the president of the Healthcare Financial Management Association, Iowa Chapter, the president of the Grinnell Early Learning Center, served on numerous local and regional boards and volunteers to support child and adolescent development.
Kyle currently lives in Johnston, Iowa, with his wife Kaitlin. They have three children, Lawrence (6), Thomas (4) and James (3), and are members of Holy Trinity Parish.
He believes the quality of education provided by Dowling Catholic is a distinctive advantage for students as they enter the next phase of life, but even more so that the growth and development of faith is invaluable for the rest of their lives.
