Mercy, named one of the top five large U.S. health systems in 2017 by Truven, an IBM company, serves millions annually. Mercy includes 44 acute care and specialty (heart, children’s, orthopedic and rehab) hospitals, more than 700 physician practices and outpatient facilities, 40,000 co-workers and more than 2,000 Mercy Clinic physicians in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Mercy also has outreach ministries in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
Beyond Mercy’s hospitals and clinics in four states, Mercy serves 240-plus hospitals across 28 states by providing virtual care, supply chain and information technology expertise.
- Mercy's Virtual Care Center is the world’s first such facility dedicated to care outside its own walls, monitoring patients 24/7/365 across the country, using high-speed data and video connections and medically intervening when and where patients need it with a comprehensive team approach.
- Mercy’s supply chain, ROi, is one of the world’s top health care supply chain operations. ROi has been named to the Gartner Healthcare Supply Chain Top 25 List for eight consecutive years; the only health care provider in the world to make it in the Top 10 for all eight years.
- Mercy was among the first health care organizations in the U.S. to have an integrated electronic health record (EHR) connecting all points of care. Mercy Technology Services' broad use of its EHR has been recognized at one of the highest possible levels by Epic. Mercy’s IT services are of particular benefit to small to medium sized hospitals seeking to improve patient care and control costs.
