Mercy - Timeline Photos

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!

In 1884, the #SistersOfMercy traveled by covered wagon from Lacon, Illinois to Indian Territory, now Oklahoma. Seems a tight fit for six adults. #tbt #ThrowbackThursday

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

#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

These lovely #Mercy nurses were all dressed up for their Nursing School Graduation in Joplin in 1905. #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

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

What's your favorite fishing spot? This Sister of #Mercy is enjoying a summer day outside with her fishing pole! #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
