From providing comfort and treatment to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, I am proud to affirm that our skilled professionals are the face of the hospital. Let this year's commemoration of National Hospital Week and National Nurses Week [May 6 to 12] celebrate the history, technology and dedicated professionals that make Provena Mercy a beacon of confidence and care within our community."
