This will warm your heart on a cold day! Dr. Tim Quinn’s daughter, Delaney, had a very important note to share with Mercy staff as we enter this Thanksgiving season…

We couldn't agree more!

When this Information Services (IS) team learned about an elderly inpatient who wouldn’t be able to attend her husband’s funeral due to her own health challenges, they wanted to help.

After hours of research, her family was able to present the patient to funeral guests via their iPhone while the patient received them on an iPad at her bedside.

“They thanked me and I got a hug,” said Mike, second from right. “The patient was very appreciative and was able to see the whole service. It was a great thing all the way around, and it made me think, ‘This is what The Mercy Touch is supposed to be like.’”

The IS team is in the process of designating a few technologies for the sole purpose of ensuring no patient is forced to miss life events because of his or her hospitalization. Great work, IS!

As part of Mission Week, today chaplains like Elizabeth are  anointing the hands of staff like Joyce in gratitude for the work they do.

Anointing is a sign of healing and commissioning for a special ministry. At Mercy, we believe all of our employees are caregivers and were called by name to serve our patients.

May the work of our hands bring healing and peace to everyone we meet. Amen!

It's #ThrowbackThursday, and today we're going way back!

By early 1900, the Sisters of Mercy in Cedar Rapids had mortgaged their home and land to purchase the O'Hara home on the corner of 3rd Ave. & 6th St. SE. On November 14, 1900, they opened the 15-bed Mercy Hospital.

Total cost for the land, house and remodeling was $8,000, a frightening amount of debt for a group of women whose only income came from teaching.

115 years later, and look how far we've come!

They were going to admit me for my Lymphedema to put me on antibiotics and I asked them if I could leave my room to get some fresh air. They said no. Hospital rules/policy says the patient must stay in the room at all times. I looked at them and said, does it look like I have prisoner written across my forehead? Man, I bet their psychiatric ward is doing a booming business with rules like that. Told them not staying. You can give me a prescription for antibiotics cause I'm going home.

Treated very poorly. I had to to take a family member into the hospital, they were having problems with their mind and movements. They pretty much said we were medication seeking and pushed us out the door after getting their money. Brian Edker I think was the doctor who treated us poorly. Finally took my family member elsewhere and turns out she has a very awful disease that will eventually kill her. Don't go here.

We already attend a MercyCare location for our general practitioner. So, when we needed emergency care last weekend, it was an easy choice to head over to Mercy. We had an excellent experience with the ER staff on call that evening. The registrant was friendly when we walked in and greeted us immediately with her computer in tow. We had to wait about 5 minutes, but that was better than we had expected. The triage nurse was friendly and competent before showing us to our room. Our main nurse that evening, Elise, was incredibly friendly and comforting - very attentive. We needed some blood-work, and the gentleman taking blood was one of the best I've ever had take my blood - friendly, quick, competent. No one likes giving blood, and I especially don't! So, it was extra helpful to have him taking the blood, when I was already stressed about our situation in being there. The practitioner was also very nice, explained things well, and answered all of our questions with solid, helpful answers. All in all, the emergency room could have been a scarier situation, and it was a pleasant one. We're grateful for the care received! Thank you to the staff that evening.

Although I received excellent care at this facility I will never return. I will not give them more business. I called in twice with my bills in hand to pay and they told me not to pay because I had overpaid and received a refund check.They had looked up on the computer system and everything was good. Then all of a sudden debt collectors were after me. I am still dealing with this half a year later and have a black mark on my credit score. So not worth my two stitches. If the staff cannot manage the billing effectively I have no confidence in them over all.

When I became suddenly ill I couldn't have asked for better care. The staff was kind, caring and considerate. Dealing with a new diagnoses is scary and the staff were so great to me and my family. They were very accommodating. Thanks Mercy!

During a recent crisis with a loved one, we couldn't have had a better experience. Social worker Courtney and ER RN were compassionate, caring and utterly professional. In the ICU, Nurses Claire, Rebecca, and another - who's name I can't recall - were attentive, vigilant and caring in every way. I would go there for anything from a sniffle to if I was dying. Can't say enough good things...
Response from the owner - 8 months ago
Thank you for the kind words, James! We will make sure those teams see your nice comments. Thanks for taking time to write a review for us!

I'm not going back to Mercy due to problems with their billing. I had a procedure performed in June 2013. In late Oct 2013 I received a bill for my share which was not covered by insurance, and I paid this amount in full within 11 days. And then in June 2014 (8 months later) I received another bill for still an additional amount for the same procedure that was performed almost a year earlier. Somebody there can't seem to get their billing straight, and they told me it's related to "system processing" (learned after many phone calls to AvadyneHealth and my insurance company). Fix the system, or am going to get still another bill to see if they can milk some more from me?
