Mercy College of Health Sciences welcomes you to visit our campus! Nestled on the edge of downtown Des Moines, Iowa, take in the city skyline everytime you walk to class. Des Moines was named #4 best place to live by U.S. News & World Report's 125 Top Places to Live in the USA in 2018. Campus is just a short walk away from the Historic Court Avenue District where you can grab food, coffee, and study or shop between classes. Did we mentioned one of our clinical affiliates, MercyOne Downtown, is just a short walk away from campus?


Campus Visit Days

Campus Visit Days provide opportunities for you to get up-close and personal with our high-tech classrooms and healthcare technology.
