Mercy becomes efactory partner
Nothing makes us happier than a new partner. We’re excited to share that Mercy is the latest addition to the efactory partner program.
The Mercy health system’s heritage dates back more than 185 years.
It began with an Irish woman named Catherine McAuley, who wanted to help poor women and children in Dublin, Ireland. In 1827, she opened the first House of Mercy in Dublin, intending to teach skills to poor women and educate children. A few years later, Catherine founded the Sisters of Mercy, the first religious order not bound to the rules of the cloister. By the time Catherine died in 1841, there were convents in Ireland and England, and in 1843, the Sisters of Mercy came to the United States.
In 1871, they traveled to St. Louis and throughout the Midwest, forming what is now known as Mercy.
Today Mercy serves millions annually. The system was named one of the top five large U.S. health systems in 2016-2019 by IBM Watson Health.
Mercy includes more than 40 acute care, managed and specialty hospitals, 900 physician practices and outpatient facilities. The system is made up of more than 45,000 coworkers and 2,400 Mercy Clinic physicians in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.
