Mercy Medical Center

250 Mercy Drive
Dubuque, IA 52001


In 1879, the Sisters of Mercy arrived in Dubuque at the request of Bishop John Hennessy to launch a healing ministry now known as Mercy Medical Center.  Today, Mercy–Dubuque is the leading hospital in the tri-states, with the most comprehensive cardiology center in the area and the only level II regional neonatal intensive care unit.  Other services include a trauma center, a CARF-accredited inpatient rehabilitation unit, home health care, orthopedics, cancer care, retail pharmacies, palliative care, and a wide range of outpatient and community services.  Mercy operates two hospital-based skilled nursing units and a 40-bed nursing home.

In recognition of the strength of its nursing service and the overall quality of patient care, Mercy was the 134th hospital in the country to be designated a Magnet® hospital, the nation's most prestigious award for nursing excellence.  Also accredited by The Joint Commission, Mercy–Dubuque is a member of Mercy Health Network in Iowa and of Trinity Health of Livonia, Michigan.
