Our Mercy health system was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1986. But our heritage goes back more than 185 years. It began with an Irish woman named Catherine McAuley, who wanted to help the poor women... more and children of Dublin. Though Catherine had a modest upbringing, she received an unexpected inheritance that allowed her to fulfill her dreams. In 1827, she opened the first House of Mercy in Dublin, intending to teach skills to poor women and educate children. Many volunteers came to help. A few years later, Catherine founded the Sisters of Mercy, the first religious order not bound to the rules of the cloister, whose Sisters were free to walk among the poor and visit them in their homes. By the time Catherine died in 1841, there were convents in Ireland and England, and in 1843, the Sisters of Mercy came to the United States. In 1871, they traveled to St. Louis and from there throughout the Midwest, beginning what would, today be known as Mercy.
Since our creation in 1986, Mercy has grown into the sixth largest Catholic health care system in the U.S., serving millions annually. Mercy includes 32 acute care hospitals, four heart hospitals, two children’s hospitals, three rehab hospitals and one orthopedic hospital, nearly 700 clinic and outpatient facilities, 40,000 co-workers and more than 2,100 Mercy Clinic physicians in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Mercy also has outreach ministries in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
Im very dissappointed on a visit my best friend had there with Doctor Rachelle Hunt, my friend was the only one there n was called back 30 minutes later than appointment was scheduled for, after in room... more she again waited 30minites, for Dr.Hunt to come in from across the room said "YOU PROBABLY EAT TO MUCH SALT, SO U SHOULD PROBABLY STOP THAT, PROBABLY HAVE A LITTLE ARTHRITIS", I FEEL SHE DIDNT CARE ABOUT MY BESTFRIEND AS A PERSON. I AM CONCERNED BC MY FRIEND DONT COMPLAIN ABOUT THINGS HURTING, she has been n alot of pain n only one of her legs hurt its so swollen nits clear i seen it, its not salt or all of her would swell, and arthritis, everyone in my fam has it and tests were done to determine it. So they were prescribed medication for it, so why was that done for my friend? Why exactly is Dr.Hunt not concerned about the fact she could have a blood clot, which could kill her? I think she is a Bad Person that should be investigated or her license pulled.. That is a Person Who is Loved, a friend, a mother, a daughter, a sister and She Matters to Me and alot of others
Clinic is useless. Hours are posted as 8 - 5 daily, but when I arrived, there was no doctor on duty to see anyone. The receptionist said she doesnt usually work there and had no clue how to direct me.... more Why even be open? Running joke in my family is "Its Paris!"
