ST. LOUIS - John Sopuch, MD, Mercy Clinic OB/GYN and labor and birth hospitalist, has seen many changes in his nearly 50 years with Mercy. He was an intern when the hospital moved from its Euclid location to St. Louis County.
Since Dr. Sopuch’s first days with Mercy, he's seen lots of changes – from ward-style units with beds separated by curtains and dads not allowed in the unit to beautiful new suites with comfort measures for mom and birth partner.
Incidentally, Dr. Sopuch’s daughter, Maggie Marcrander, MD, followed in her dad’s footsteps. She’s also a Mercy Clinic OB/GYN and helped with the design of our new mother-baby areas.
