ST. LOUIS - Mercy made a commitment to residents of St. Charles County to provide more convenient access to its services. The largest symbol to date of that commitment, Mercy Zumbehl Road, opened Sept. 17, at 1820 Zumbehl Rd. The facility includes offices for family and internal medicine, cardiology and cardiac diagnostic services, OB/GYN, imaging and laboratory services.
This new location also marks a first within Mercy serving as a prototype for new facilities in the area and across Mercy’s four states. Elements such as a covered canopy area for drop off and pick up, an open gallery-style waiting area for check in and a central kiosk with access to MyMercy, wider corridors and larger exam rooms were incorporated to make the experience with Mercy as easy and comfortable as possible.
“We are listening to our patients, visitors and co-workers and using what we hear to plan,” said Don Kalicak, regional vice president of development at Mercy. “In the coming months, more Mercy locations are scheduled to open in response to requests for Mercy services closer to home.”
In addition to more locations for pediatricians, primary care and specialty physicians, Mercy’s expansion in St. Charles County will include extended hours in many Mercy Clinic practices. The planning of these Mercy facilities continues with the help of input from community members through community roundtables held in St. Charles, Warren and Lincoln counties.
Mercy’s goal is to enhance health care in St. Charles, Warren and Lincoln counties and to bring services closer to patients and co-workers who live in the area. Approximately 2,200 Mercy co-workers live in the three counties, with some 50 Mercy Clinic physicians currently practicing in nine locations. Mercy also has two urgent care facilities, an imaging center, rehabilitation services, an endoscopy center and a maternal and fetal health center in the region.

Mercy Clinic Family Medicine Zumbehl, Ste. 130A
