Since 2016, MercyOne Children’s Hospital has served as one of Principal Charity Classic (PCC) Tournament Charity Partners. Proceeds from Principal Charity Classic have impacted the pediatric cardiac care program at MercyOne Children’s Hospital in meaningful ways.
Every year at PCC, we feature MercyOne Children Hospital Heart Superheroes, who are all former patients who experienced life-saving cardiac care surgeries and procedures through the pediatric cardiac care program.
