On December 12, Mercy recognizes Foundation Day of the Sisters of Mercy. On that day in 1831, Catherine McAuley, Mary Ann Doyle and Elizabeth Harley took vows to become the first Sisters of Mercy and thus began a religious community dedicated to serving the poor, sick and uneducated.
Today, the Mercy that McAuley and “the walking Sisters” inspired is guided by the same philosophy to bring care where it’s needed most. Thanks to new and emerging technologies, Mercy's clinical teams can now serve more people where they are — in their homes, schools and workplaces. That's the highlight of a recent article, "Taking Virtual Care to New Places," featured in The Leaflet, a publication created for this year's Healthcare Facilities Symposium and Expo.
"Virtual care is a vital, growing part of our path forward," writes Dave Hirschbuehler, principal at the award-winning design firm, Forum Studio.
