Corridor Business Journal: Mercy Iowa City is ending its search to find a new health care partner, instead opting to remain affiliated with the MercyOne health network. A spokesperson with Mercy Iowa City confirmed to the CBJ the hospital is sticking with the status quo, despite “several proposals” from larger health care systems. Mercy Iowa City began its strategic affiliation agreement with Mercy Health Network in 2017 before announcing in June 2021 they would explore options to find a new partner.
