A century ago, students from St. Anne’s Academy (founded by the Sisters of Mercy) gathered around this grotto. A U.S. president even once lived at this site in Fort Smith, Ark. #TBT #throwbackthursday

We’ve come a long way since Captain E. O. Bartlett broke ground in Joplin (in 1898) for St. John’s hospital. On March 22, we’ll celebrate the opening of the new, state-of-the-art #MercyJoplin!

Recognize this waterfall? Sister Josephine Nulty (Knapp) and Sister Celestine Kennedy were photographed in front of an unknown location between 1891-1918. Best guess is Seven Falls in Colorado. The #SistersOfMercy ran a hospital in Manitou Springs in that same time period. #ThrowbackThursday #tbt

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

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

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
