In response to the growing demand for health care professionals, renovation and design of the newest additions to the Mercy College campus are underway.
Mercy Medical Center - Des Moines has entered into a non-binding Memo of Understanding with Newbury Living to redevelop a building formerly known as Mercy Court, for future use by Mercy College students for apartments. In addition, Newbury Living is creating a 20,000 square foot building on the site for College offices and classrooms with the architectural help of Simonson & Associates. Newbury is working to have student apartments available and open the new building by fall 2017.
