Mercy Medical Center Merced is a modern, Joint Commission-approved hospital in which a great variety of patients are seen. It has a very active emergency room and a large, up-to-date and busy 24-bed ICU/CCU/TCU. It is the major obstetrical hospital in the area.
There is a Level II NICU which is affiliated with Valley Children's Hospital. It has diagnostic facilities often found only in larger community hospitals such as a Cardiac Catheterization Lab, CT Scanner, and MRI. All plain films are digital. The entire hospital uses a PACS radiology viewer software, allowing physicians to view radiology studies from any hospital computer.
The new hospital was opened in 2010, which added significantly to its ability to deliver high-quality care. The Family Birth Center features LDRP rooms, the ICU has spacious rooms which are also monitored by AICU - our tele-medicine partner. We anticipate that the hospital, along with the central valley will continue to grow and increase its census over the next years.
