What This Means

For 150 years, the University of Iowa and Mercy Iowa City have served the health care needs of patients in our community and beyond. From the beginning, both our institutions have focused on bringing accessible health care to Iowans, regardless of their ability to pay. It is that same spirit of steadfast commitment to service that will be vital as we plan to join our two organizations in early 2024.

At a time when many hospitals nationwide are experiencing significant financial challenges, we are heartened to begin the planning to bring Mercy Iowa City into UI Health Care. Focused on serving together, we will preserve and enhance access to quality health care and jobs for those throughout our region.
