Friday, April 27, 2018 - Mercy Iowa City awards health careers scholarships

The Mercy Hospital Foundation has again awarded ten Health Careers Scholarships of $1,000 each, renewable for up to four years. The recipients are students graduating from high schools in Mercy’s ten-county service area who plan to pursue degrees leading to a health care career. The recipients were honored at a reception on April 26 when each individual was able to share their personal motivation for pursuing a career in health care.

The Health Careers Scholarship program is made possible by generous donations from Mercy Iowa City employees and the Mercy Hospital Guild with supplemental funds from the Mercy Hospital Foundation.

The Carly M. Ambrisco Health Careers Scholarship, an endowed fund, was awarded to Mary Crompton, Regina High School, who will be majoring in Physical Therapy.

This is the sixteenth year that Mercy Iowa City has awarded Health Careers Scholarships.
