Presence Mercy Medical Center

At Presence Mercy Medical Center, we meet the needs of the whole person:  medical, physical, emotional and spiritual. We treat people who are medically sick, physically hurting, emotionally distraught, and whose spiritual resources are challenged.

Our warm and caring pastoral staff provides a safe environment for patients to share their emotions and concerns anytime day or night.
