In 1852, four Sisters of Mercy came to Hartford to work among the sick and the poor. Since that day, the Sisters of Mercy have touched thousands of us, caring for us when we are ill, opening schools and orphanages to teach and nurture the children in our communities, and standing with the powerless in their quest for dignity and justice.
Today, the Sisters of Mercy sponsor institutions to address their enduring concerns. Health care facilities that are publicly recognized as “Mercy” are steeped in a heritage of excellence, service, and creative response to human need.
The Mercy Community is proud to have been founded by the Sisters of Mercy, Northeast Community, and to be a member of Trinity Health, Inc., a multi-institutional Catholic health care system with a dedicated commitment to the dignity of every individual and the sacredness of life, and a distinct devotion to caring for the poor, the elderly, and the disadvantaged.
