“The simplest and most practical lesson I know … is to resolve to be good today, but better tomorrow.”

Catherine McAuley, RSM, Founder of the Sisters of Mercy

Returning to Our Roots

In 2007, Pittsburgh Mercy Health System refocused its mission, transitioned all of its former hospital-based services to other providers in the region, and returned to its roots of caring for the most vulnerable people in our community.

In many ways, the original mission of the Sisters of Mercy has come full circle. The Sisters of Mercy legacy of community-based service, heritage of hope, and “feet on the streets” approach to care continue to thrive throughout Pittsburgh Mercy and the Pittsburgh Mercy Family of Care®.
