Mercy is going to great lengths to provide Logan County residents with the very best health care services. This includes offering specialty clinics at Mercy Hospital Paris in gynecology, podiatry, and wound care. A new Sleep Disorder Center and Telemedicine will soon also be offered at Mercy Hospital in Paris.

Best of all, our providers are people you know and trust, and they understand the value of strong community health care. At Mercy, we’re going the distance to bring you the kind of health care services that you would drive hours to receive somewhere else, but those services are offered to you and your family, right here at home.
