Having access to advanced clinical technologies is important to patients.

This commitment to advanced technology continues with the installation of a new linear accelerator – the machine that targets and destroys cancer cells – in Mercy’s radiation oncology center. With community support, a $2 million capital campaign is underway that will provide cancer patients with the newest technology available to fight cancer.

As a major provider of health services, Mercy is committed to working with other health care provid-ers to assure a full continuum of excellent, cost-effective health care services accessible to all persons.
