A MESSAGE FROM
PRESIDENT ADREAIN M. HENRY
For over 120 years, Mercy College has persisted on a singular path: providing high quality healthcare education to students in central Iowa. Our students are among the best and brightest, coming from many different backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. They graduate and go on to become nurses, physical therapist assistants, radiologic technologists, medical assistants, paramedics, healthcare administrators, or public health professionals. Many continue their education and become doctors, optometrists, pharmacists, veterinarians, or dentists. It is rare to find an Iowan who has not encountered a Mercy College-educated healthcare professional, or been impacted by the College’s ministry in some way. Ours is a legacy built on our Core Values of Knowledge, Reverence, Integrity, Compassion, and Excellence. We pride ourselves on providing a quality healthcare education, both on our downtown Des Moines campus and through our online platforms.
