Health improvement and wellness

Mercy Hospital conducts scores of programs to prevent illness and improve the health and well-being for patients, families and community members. Programs reach a variety of age groups and touch on virtually every health topic.

Based on data collected since 1995 by Mercy and Unity's hospitals Wellness Program, 30 percent of students in Anoka and Coon Rapids are at a higher risk of developing heart disease because of their blood pressure or total cholesterol readings.

We welcome questions about our programs and services, but we cannot answer questions about individual medical concerns, provide second opinions or make specific recommendations about therapy. We encourage you to discuss those issues with your health care provider.
