News: Cardiology Providers at Mercy
Mercy was recently notified of the decision by the former Cardiologists, LC (now called UnityPoint Clinic – Cardiology) that they will no longer provide care for cardiac patients at Mercy, effective June 1. As a result, Mercy has been receiving numerous calls from patients and families confused and upset about this decision.
Mercy wants to reassure our patients:
- Mercy has and continues to be committed to offering award-winning, high-quality cardiovascular services. In fact, Mercy was recently rated #1 in Linn County for medical excellence in cardiac care.
- Patients have the right to choose where they receive care and we encourage them to continue to select Mercy as their hospital of choice. Patients need to simply select a cardiologist that provides services at Mercy, such as Cedar Rapids Heart Center.
- Mercy encourages patients to continue to use Mercy’s ER for their cardiac emergency needs, where cardiologists provide timely and quality on-call coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
For questions about cardiology providers at Mercy, contact Molly Flynn, Director of Clinic Operations, at (319) 398-6131.
