, a 445-bed hospital located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has implemented Quantifi from

Founded in 1900 by the Sisters of Mercy, Mercy Medical Center offers a wide range of patient services, including state-of-the art cancer care delivered at the American College of Surgeons (ACoS)-accredited Mercy Regional Cancer Center, it touts.
