You’ve hopefully heard that Mercy Medical Center is now MercyOne. But maybe you’re wondering, Why? And what does this mean?
A little background: Mercy Medical Center has been a part of Mercy Health Network for twenty years. Mercy Health Network (now MercyOne) is a leading health care system and one of Iowa’s largest employers with more than 20,000 colleagues. We’re a group of 40 hospitals and 230 clinics, caring for 30% of Iowans, but we’ve never really presented ourselves as a united group.
So why now?
The change to MercyOne reflects Mercy Health Network’s significant growth over the last 20 years and is a key step in connecting its many points of care across the state. Simply said, we think becoming ONE will make it easier for you to identify care locations, enhance the coordination of medical expertise and services, and ensure consistent experiences across all locations.
“We are excited to bring our mission and vision to life with our new unified brand. Our transition to MercyOne allows us to be more recognizable to the people and communities we serve and celebrates the remarkable work of our teams across the state to build a better-connected system of care and services,” said MercyOne President and CEO Bob Ritz. “MercyOne represents our incredible team of over 20,000 people working together with one purpose, helping every individual we serve live their best life. The health of our patients and communities is at the center of the circle of all of our efforts.”
With the new brand, our hospitals and clinics have modified our names and logo. So, Mercy Medical Center – Dubuque and Mercy Medical Center – Dyersville are now MercyOne Dubuque Medical Center and MercyOne Dyersville Medical Center. But you’re welcome to refer to us simply as MercyOne. You can expect to see us transitioning to our new name and logo over the next several months, including the change in signage on our buildings this summer.
Through everything we do, we’re committed to ensuring that you’re living your best life possible. By being there, doing right, and inspiring confidence as one team and one unified system of care – MercyOne – we can deliver on this promise with strength, coordination, and consistency.
