Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, had a dream and she was confident that God’s merciful work would endure through each of us. Our doctors, nurses and staff and the service they provide our patients are the most important elements in living out our mission. Each day, we are reminded of the values inspired by the Sisters of Mercy and their vision – they are our gifts – and each day we continue to put these gifts to work and bring them to life in all that we do.
The Mission of Mercy
Like the Sisters of Mercy before us, we witness God’s healing love for all people by providing excellent clinical and residential services within a community of compassionate care.
The Sisters of Mercy have long believed in the power of individuals, encouraging others to join them in making a positive difference in the world.
One such individual dedicated her life to serving the Sisters of Mercy and spreading their mission. Miss Georgia Rush served as unofficial campus matriarch to generations of medical residents in an era when physicians-in-training lived onsite. Working at Mercy for nearly 70 years, Miss Georgia modeled a life in service to others, and unknowingly inspired those around her to follow by example. Miss Georgia was a woman of profound faith and compassion who was beloved by the Sisters of Mercy and her coworkers.
Like Miss Georgia, thousands of employees and staff continue to make a positive impact on the lives of our patients each day. Empowered by the Sisters, they give their best, fostering a future filled with optimism and hope.
