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 from Ft. Scott, Kan., used to love spending time outdoors in Gunn Park. What do you suppose they were cooking?#throwbackthursday #tbt

#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

    How long as the JFK Clinic been around?

  • 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

The Sisters of Mercy first opened #Mercy Hospital in a temporary building in Joplin in 1896. This photo of a horse-drawn ambulance was taken in front of the new hospital building which opened in 1900, and renamed St. John's. #throwbackthursday #tbt

Sisters of Mercy were taking some time away from their duties at the hospital to enjoy the carousel ride at Riverside Park in Independence, Kan. #throwbackthursday #tbt

Sisters of Mercy cared for kiddos quarantined during the 1899 smallpox epidemic just outside of Springfield. #throwbackthursday #tbt

Sister Bernard loved her little parakeet, as they worked together in the medical records office in Ft. Scott, Kan. in 1967. #throwbackthursday #tbt

This Sister of #Mercy is standing proudly with a cutting-edge piece of medical equipment in the 1960s. The heart-lung machine keeps oxygenated blood circulating during surgery. #throwbackthursday #tbt

These Sisters of Mercy are ready for a joyride in their new set of wheels. Taken in 1967, the building in the background is the #Mercy School of Nursing in Fort Scott, Kansas. #throwbackthursday #tbt
