At Carolinas Medical Center-Mercy, we believe that providing truly outstanding healthcare involves more than just treating a symptom, it means caring for a person – a person whose needs include a comfortable environment, a friendly face and a reassuring touch in addition to state-of-the-art medical services. For almost 100 years, we’ve been treating our neighbors from Charlotte and the surrounding region with that special combination of unsurpassed human compassion and leading-edge expertise.
CMC-Mercy was established in 1906 by the Sisters of Mercy as the first Catholic Hospital in North Carolina. On June 5, 1995, this not-for-profit adult health tertiary acute care facility was sold by the Sisters to Carolinas HealthCare System.
As an adult acute care facility, CMC-Mercy is licensed for 196 beds, and provides a full-range of services, from emergency room care to surgery to rehabilitation. In addition, we serve as the home to some of the area’s most advanced specialty services, such as The Heart Center, The Lung Center, Southeast Pain Care, The Sleep Center and several others.
Empowered by our dedicated team of caregivers – doctors, nurses, technicians, administrators and more – many of whom have been a part of the CMC-Mercy family for decades, we’re confident in our ability to provide excellent healthcare that incorporates “high-touch” as well as “high-tech.”
