Mercy Iowa City will join the Mercy Health Network statewide hospital network, effective June 1. Mercy Health Network and Mercy Iowa City each have missions focused on improving and transforming health care in the communities served. Both organizations were both founded by the Sisters of Mercy and share legacies of compassionate care and service to the poor.
Mercy Health Network was created to add value to participating organizations and communities by improving the quality of health care, reducing costs, increasing the accessibility of care and improving health. Dave Vellinga, Mercy Health Network CEO, said, “We are excited to have Mercy Iowa City join us in these efforts to transform health care across the region.”
