Mercy Company Profile

10:51 EST 13th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

On a chilly November 11, 1874, six Sisters of Mercy arrived in Baltimore to take charge of a dispensary called The Baltimore City Hospital. Located in a former schoolhouse at the corner of Saratoga and Calvert Streets, it was a small, dingy building whose meager appearance belied its enormous promise. One hundred and twenty-five years later, that promised has been fulfilled thanks to the Sisters of Mercy and the many medical and lay staff who provide care to thousands of Baltimoreans. Today, Mercy Medical Center is a 285-bed, full-service university-affiliated medical facility, delivering a full range of health care services including internal medicine, obstetrics, pediatrics, urology, cardiology, gastroenterology, oncology, women's services, cosmetic surgery, ophthalmology, hospice, rehabilitative care, and emergency medicine. Celebrating 125 years of service to the city of Baltimore, Mercy's Mission remains the same as it did in the beginning: "To heal the sick, no matter their economic or social condition."
