Heritage Awards


Due to the recent concerns in our community about the Coronavirus, COVID-19, and for the safety of our leaders, colleagues, friends and family we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Mercy Heritage Awards scheduled for Sat., March 14, 2020 at the Mid-America Center, Council Bluffs.

We are disappointed because honoring individuals who have given so much to our community is something we look forward to every March. However, we think it is best to reschedule for later in the year. In the next few weeks, we will publish the new date of the Mercy Heritage Awards, and all tickets will be honored.

"CHI Health Mercy Council Bluffs deserves a lot of credit for making this tough decision," said Jerry Mathiasen, one of the four respected Heritage Award recipients to be honored this year. "Their mission is to continue building healthy communities, and they are showing leadership in this area by being precautionary. I respect that."

Mathiasen added, "We can celebrate our community later in the year after we get through this."

Thank you for your support of CHI Health Mercy Council Bluffs and of our longstanding Mercy Heritage Awards. We look forward to seeing you in a few short months when we can all celebrate the contributions of this year’s wonderful recipients.
