Mercy, named one of the top five large U.S. health systems in 2017 by Truven, an IBM Watson Health company, serves millions annually. Mercy includes 44 acute care and specialty (heart, children’s, orthopedic and rehab) hospitals, more than 700 physician practices and outpatient facilities, 40,000 co-workers and more than 2,000 Mercy Clinic physicians in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Mercy also has outreach ministries in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Mercy co-workers strive to bring to life the healing ministry of Jesus through their compassionate care and exceptional service. Dignity, Excellence, Justice, Service and Stewardship are the values Mercy uses every day to exceed the patient’s expectations of health care. Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Mercy’s heritage dates back to 1831 when Sister Catherine McAuley opened the “House of Mercy” on Baggot Street in Dublin, Ireland. Today, Mercy’s vision is to pioneer a new model of health care that will deliver a transformative health experience.
