Mercy’s state-of-the-art hospital in Joplin, at I-44 and Main Street opened in March 2015– along with additional health care services in Joplin. The hospital includes expanded service lines to include medical surgical, critical care, women’s/children’s (labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum rooms), behavioral health, and neonatal intensive care. The hospital is equipped with 200+ inpatient beds. In total, Mercy’s commitment to Joplin included upwards of $950 million – something unheard of in most communities today. Committed to the community since 1885 when the Sisters of Mercy first provided much needed health care to local miners. Those efforts continue today. This new footprint in Joplin will allow Mercy to deliver health care in a new way.
