Mercy Responds to COVID-19
As part of our mission and heritage for almost 200 years, we care for those in our community regardless of the illness or circumstance. It's what we do. It's who we are. Our Sisters of Mercy, long known as the Walking Sisters, have always turned and walked toward those in need. Whether it was a cholera or typhoid epidemic in Dublin, Ireland, in the early 1800s, or a smallpox outbreak in Springfield, Missouri, at the turn of the century, the Sisters were many times the first to serve, without hesitation, whenever needed.
Today, Mercy's mission remains unchanged. We serve our communities with compassionate care, dignity and medical expertise.
