Mercy's Division of Nursing Service supports the medical center's faith-based environment as well as its mission of providing compassionate care for all who come to us. Nurses play a vitally important role in that mission, working side by side as team members with physicians, dietitians, social workers, chaplains, pharmacists and others to assure that we maintain the highest standards of patient care.
We are also committed to providing nurses with an environment of personal satisfaction and professional growth. We promote shared decision-making and participatory management. Our Healthcare System provides us a wealth of resources which allows Mercy Medical Center to be on the cutting edge in nursing as well as in medicine. Our focus is always on ever-improving patient care. To that end, the Division of Nursing at Mercy actively participates in the American Nurses Association Quality Program with focus on Patient Safety first.
