You may have noticed a bright spotlight shining above the Dyersville MercyOne medical center. MercyOne installed these lights at centers throughout the state of Iowa, as a beacon of light and a sign of appreciation for their amazing colleagues, physicians and providers who provide personalized care at clinics, patient homes, labs, testing sites, affiliate partner locations, medical centers and more. The lights, visible for miles, depending on weather conditions, were illuminated at 5 p.m. daily Jan. 1-7.
These beacons were installed at MercyOne locations in Centerville, Des Moines, Newton, West Des Moines, Clinton, Elkader, Dubuque, Dyersville, Mason City, New Hampton, Cedar Falls, Oelwein, Waterloo, Primghar and Sioux City.
“We are incredibly proud of the quality and personalized care provided by our colleagues to patients and each other along with the innovation underway. As we continue to battle COVID-19 together, we are filled with hope and gratitude. These lights signal to our colleagues and communities we will persevere together and move toward a brighter future in 2021,” said Bob Ritz, MercyOne President and CEO.
