 (ABC 6 NEWS)-- Mercy Foundation – North Iowa has announced a $1 million gift from the Sukup Family Foundation. 

 “This gift is for a project that will benefit all of north Iowa,” said Scott Smith, Executive Director of the Mercy Foundation.  “We’re honored to receive such a generous gift that will help so many people.”

The gift will be used for Mercy’s new cardiovascular suite involving the reconstruction of the existing two cardiac catheterization labs, the electrophysiology lab and the procedure recovery unit, and the addition of a hybrid cardiovascular suite capable of performing both catheter-based procedures and open-surgical procedures.   The new cardiovascular suite will enhance Mercy-North Iowa’s cardiovascular procedures that require specialized equipment and environment.
