About Mercy Medical Center
Mercy Medical Center is a fully accredited Joint Commission, 25-bed Critical Access regional medical facility which serves an estimated 60,000 people from Western North Dakota and Eastern Montana. We are a rural facility that offers many of the same services you would expect to find in larger, urban centers. Our staff is comprised of approximately 450 employees making us one of the largest employers in the region.
Mercy Medical Center was founded in 1920 by the Sisters of Mercy to provide quality healthcare for the whole person regardless of socioeconomic status, race, or ability to pay. Since then, Mercy Medical Center has become a regional medical center offering a range of services including emergency services, surgery, wellness programs, cancer treatment, home health, hospice, chemical dependency programs, rehabilitation therapies, and many more.
In 1996, Mercy Medical Center was purchased by Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI), a national nonprofit health organization with headquarters in Englewood, Colo. The faith-based system operates in 19 states and includes 73 hospitals; 40 long-term care, assisted- and residential-living facilities; two community health-services organizations; two accredited nursing colleges; and home health agencies. In fiscal year 2011, CHI provided more than $612 million in charity care and community benefit, including services for the poor, free clinics, education and research. With annual operating revenues of approximately $9.6 billion, CHI is the nation's third-largest Catholic health care system.
In September 2008, Mercy Medical Center was designated as a regional Critical Access Hospital.
Today, Mercy provides the latest technology ranging from state-of-the-art diagnostics like Full Field Digital Mammography, MRI and CT scans in our Imaging Department to advanced treatment methods offered by our Leonard P. Nelson Cancer Center.
Mercy Medical Center is affiliated with the most respected physicians and medical providers in the region. Craven-Hagan Clinic offers the area's premier primary care group with physicians and providers specializing in family practice, internal medicine, pain management, general and orthopedic surgery.
