A throwback to Mercy's heritage that began in the early 1800s.

#TBT to 1905 when #SistersOfMercy opened a 30-bed infirmary in what was once a school in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Many of the Sisters had nursed wounded soldiers during the Civil War.

#Mercy Sisters offer an Irish toast to our friends and family. Cheers to a happy and healthy New Year! “In the New Year, may your right hand be always stretched out in friendship, but never in want.” #throwbackthursday #tbt #newyear

Funny how fashion comes full circle. Check out those glasses and plaid! They’d fit right in today. This young mom was visiting the JFK Clinic at #Mercy Hospital St. Louis (then known as St. John's) in the 1960s. #throwbackthursday #tbt

  • Mercy

    It actually opened when the hospital moved to it's current location 50 years ago, December 1963

Who loves volunteers! We do! Check out the Pink Ladies getting "pinned" for their service in the late 50s at Mercy Hospital Jefferson. This volunteer program is celebrating its 55th year of service this year! #throwbackthursday #tbt
