The opening of Mercy Hospital Joplin brings an unprecedented leap forward in health care while fulfilling a promise to build a stronger community. Mercy’s commitment to Joplin dates to 1896 when the Sisters of Mercy began caring for this community. When there was a need, Mercy answered. Today, we need the Joplin community to join with us and insist that all our neighbors have Mercy as a health care option.
Our Mercy health system was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1986. But our heritage goes back more than 190 years. It began at an unlikely time in an unlikely place with an unlikely woman. In 1827, our founder, Catherine McAuley fulfilled her dreams and opened the first House of Mercy in Dublin, Ireland to help alleviate the health care, education and employment needs of poor women and children. In 1871, the Sisters of Mercy traveled to St. Louis and from there throughout the Midwest, beginning what would, today be known as Mercy. We’ve been caring for our communities ever since.
Founded in 1827. Yes, in 1827!
