Washington Mo. - Pharmacists and physicians from Mercy Hospital-Washington teamed together to conduct a series of three-day-long educational training seminars on the optimal use of antibiotics in the hospital for a group of new health care employees.

The $27,000 in proceeds they received from developing and presenting the seminars were donated to Mercy Hospital Washington Foundation toward the expansion and renovation of the hospital’s new Emergency Department.
