“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™.

A Member of Trinity Health

Pittsburgh Mercy is a member of Trinity Health, one of the largest multi-institutional Catholic health care delivery systems in the United States with an enduring legacy and steadfast mission. Trinity Health was formed in May 2013, when two smaller regional Catholic health systems – Trinity Health and Catholic Health East – came together to strengthen their shared mission, advance excellence, and transform care with a unified voice.

Trinity Health has annual operating revenues of $17.6 billion and assets of $23.4 billion. It returns $1.1 billion to its communities annually in the form of charity care and other community benefit programs.

Pittsburgh Mercy and Trinity Health serve together as a compassionate and transforming, healing presence within our communities. Our mission and values guide everything we do.
