Our Mercy Health Mission

Our Mission extends the compassionate ministry of Jesus by improving the health and well-being of our communities and brings good help to those in need, especially people who are poor, dying and underserved.


Our Mission Lives in us

At Mercy Health, we believe that our work brings our Mission to life. As we serve with tenderness and care, we can see the difference it makes to our patients and their families. Join our team and answer the call to help advance care for all our communities.

Our Vision

Our Vision, inspired by God's hope for the world, is that we will be a ministry where associates want to work, clinicians want to practice, people seek wellness and communities thrive.


Our Values

  • Compassion - We commit to accompanying those we serve with mercy and tenderness, recognizing that "being with" is as important as "doing for".

  • Human dignity - We commit to upholding the sacredness of life and being respectful and inclusive of everyone.

  • Integrity - We commit to acting ethically and modeling right relationships in all of our individual and organizational encounters.

  • Service - We commit to providing the highest quality in every dimension of our ministry.

  • Stewardship - We commit to promoting the responsible use of all human and financial resources, including Earth itself.

Supporting Our Community

Compassion and service are a huge part of who we are and the work we do at Mercy Health. Through a myriad of internal, local and nationally based partnerships we are extending Jesus healing ministry to all.

Giving back

While we offer our expertise to established and developing programs, we also make sure that we can help our communities in every way possible. Through our charitable giving, we support organizations that are already doing the work our regions need and help them make an even greater impact. Every day, we give nearly $2 million back to the communities we serve. That adds up to a yearly giving total of over $600 million. We are proud of our contributions to each of the organizations we help, and we are excited to continue our giving traditions.

Our History

Our history of compassion and carrying forth the healing ministry of the church began in 1831 with the founding of the Sisters of Mercy. In 1847, the sisters established the first Mercy hospital in Pittsburgh. With a focus on healing the poor, sick and dying, our hospitals have always been a place where everyone can find compassionate care.

Focusing on our mission to improve the health of communities helped Mercy Health expand into multiple facilities across eight regions in Ohio and Kentucky. On September 1, 2018, Mercy Health and Bon Secours combined to become the United States’ fifth-largest Catholic health care ministry and one of the nation’s 20 largest health care systems. Together, our shared Catholic heritage is helping us lead the way to the future of care.
