Mercy Home Medical Equipment
Mercy Home Medical Equipment provides a variety of state-of-the-art respiratory and home medical equipment for our patients who have been hospitalized and are preparing to go home, as well as others with special medical needs.
Something as small as a wrist brace or as large as a hospital bed can be found at Mercy Home Medical Equipment. We serve all ages, and work with many health issues.
For new moms ready to go home, we have breast pumps. For those recovering from surgery or treatment for a variety of injuries, we have ankle and wrist support braces; blood pressure monitors; support hose; raised toilet seats; support pillows for legs or lower back.
The Mercy ReNew Image Center offers the best post-surgery and cancer recovery products available. Located on the first floor, just inside the main entrance of the Hall-Perrine Cancer Center.
For those in nursing homes or assisted living, or needing help at home, we have bath and shower stools and chairs, walkers and canes. We also have accessories for walkers, such as baskets and pouches for carrying things.
Some of our equipment is available for rental, rather than purchase, because the need may be short term. Oxygen tanks, hospital beds and wheelchairs are available under this arrangement, pending insurance approval, as are rehabilitation and some respiratory equipment for conditions such as sleep apnea.

For patients with sleep apnea, we offer Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) breathing equipment that helps ease breathing and snoring during sleep. In addition, we offer health care expertise and service on the use of these units through our clinics.
Our CPAP and BiPAP Clinics are offered quarterly from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the 10th Street Lobby in Mercy Medical Center. These are free, walk-in clinics for individual consultations, mask fittings for sleep comfort, pressure checks on current equipment, evaluation of supplies and new product displays. If clinic times are not convenient for you, call (319) 363-1308 or 1-888-686-4498 to set up an appointment.
