Mercy Expansion and Renovation Project


For 50 years, Mercy Hospital has been caring for the health of our communities, one person at a time. As we look to the next 50 years, Mercy's new expansion and renovation project addresses the current and future health care needs of the region.


The project is designed to enhance patient care, safety, and privacy, while reflecting the personalized, high quality care our dedicated staff provides to all our patients.


This investment in the health care of the region features a new, two-story addition that relocates the hospital’s main entrance. The project will also include major remodeling of existing space.

  • Emergency Department with private treatment rooms
  • Diagnostic Imaging, including inhouse MRI
  • Laboratory Services
  • Admissions
  • Expanded Gift Shop
  • Private Patient Rooms, including 2 ICU rooms
  • Birthing Suites and Nursery
  • Comfortable Family Waiting Rooms
  • Opens the week of January 12

Renovations of the existing hospital will include:

  • Addition of third Surgery Suite and new pre- and post-op rooms
  • Meditation Room
  • Chemotherapy & Infusion Services
  • Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy
