About Us

Together we can touch more lives. Save more lives. And improve more lives.

As the Sisters of Mercy before us, we bring to life the healing ministry of Jesus through our compassionate care and exceptional service.

Mercy is deeply committed to the flourishing of our communities. The call of Mercy Health Foundation is to build and strengthen relationships with those who have been touched by our ministry and who seek to use their gifts for the common good.

“Let charity then be our badge of honor.”

– Catherine McAuley

 

Mercy was founded in gratitude.

When a young Irish woman named Catherine McAuley received an unexpected inheritance, she gave thanks to God and her benefactor. Catherine used those funds to open the first house of Mercy, serving impoverished women and children in Dublin. Catherine founded the Sisters of Mercy, a new kind of religious community – one that lived outside cloistered walls. The sisters were known as the “walking Sisters” because of their willingness to go out and serve the community.

Today, the mission Catherine began over 100 years ago is stronger than ever.

Mercy was named one of the top five large U.S. health systems in 2018, 2017 and 2016 by IBM Watson Health. Serving millions of patients annually, Mercy includes more than 40 acute care and specialty (heart, children’s, orthopedic and rehab) hospitals, 800 physician practices and outpatient facilities, 44,000 co-workers and 2,100 Mercy Clinic physicians in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Mercy also has clinics, outpatient services and outreach ministries in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
