The History of Community Mercy Health Partners
When Community Mercy Health Partners was officially formed July 1, 2004, it was one of the greatest examples of collaboration this community has ever seen.
But the roots of our organization go back more than a century … and we have reached countless milestones since then with diverse people working together to better serve our community. Indeed, they established a Heritage of Collaboration.
Community Mercy Health Partners – today with more than 2,800 associates and a comprehensive network of facilities and health care services – traces its beginnings to a 15-bed hospital staffed by four nurses on Springfield’s East Main Street.
