OELWEIN (KWWL) - An emergency public meeting was held Tuesday night to discuss Mercy Hospital in Oelwein.

This comes after Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare, the parent company of Mercy Hospital, announced it would dissolve Mercy's Board of Directors by Thursday.

"We are committed to continuing to provide quality care at Mercy Hospital in Oelwein. The board on the local level will be dissolved, but the decision making power of the board will be enhanced. Mercy Hospital will have two Oelwein representatives on the Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare-Iowa Board," said Jack Dusenbery, President & CEO Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare-Iowa.
