Mercy Medical Center | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

Mercy Medical Center (Baltimore). The organization once known as the Baltimore City Hospital through the aid of the Sisters of Mercy has become the Mercy Medical Center, one of the largest hospitals in Maryland. A Catholic nonprofit hospital, Mercy Medical Center was named the No. 2 hospital in Maryland by the U.S. News & World Report for 2014-15 and carries a Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

The hospital became affiliated with the Sisters of Mercy organization in 1874, through which it partnered with medical and nursing schools and improved its patient outcomes. It changed its name to Mercy Hospital in 1909 and eventually became Mercy Medical Center, which now includes specialty centers in women's health, orthopedics, cancer and digestive health.

Mercy Medical Center also leads in technology adoption, including the use of the da Vinci surgical robot system and 3D mammography. Surgeons at the 281-bed hospital performed 7,366 inpatient and 20,755 outpatient surgeries in 2014, and the hospital employs 195 full-time physicians and 482 nurses.



In their own words:

"Since its inception, Mercy Medical Center has been blessed by the service and dedication of the Sisters of Mercy. Over the years, the Sisters have served in a wide range of roles in support of the hospital and its mission. They are, without hesitation, the reason for Mercy’s past, present and future successes.

Mercy has cherished its legacy as a teaching hospital for physicians and continues to serve as a host site for a number of college nurse training programs and their clinical hospital training. Mercy has a national reputation for women’s health care; this year marks the 20th anniversary of Mercy’s acclaimed Center for Women’s Health & Medicine under the medical direction of internationally renowned gynecologic oncologist Dr. Neil B. Rosenshein.

Mercy Medical Center is a welcoming, patient-friendly environment; a physical testament to the Values of the Sisters of Mercy – Dignity, Hospitality, Justice, Excellence, Stewardship and Prayer."
