About Mercy

Mercy Hospital Guild

The Mercy Hospital Guild was organized in 1962. The Guild’s mission is now, as it was then, to provide service to Mercy’s patients, families, and visitors and to provide financial support for the hospital. The Guild is one of the Mercy Hospital Foundation's largest donors and since 1962 has donated more than $2.5 million for the purchase of needed equipment and materials.

Benefits:

  • An invitation to the Guild Annual Meeting
  • A 20 percent discount in the Mercy Gift Shop on the day you volunteer
  • A chance to be part of a group that supports Mercy Iowa City

Membership in the Mercy Guild is $10 a year or $100 for lifetime.
