The Alex G. Spanos Heart & Vascular Center is built upon the legacy of compassionate care established by the Sisters of Mercy, who have faithfully served the Sacramento community’s health care needs since 1895. Mercy General Hospital, at its current site since 1925, is today a premier destination for cardiovascular services with a long list of accolades.
In 2017, the national reporting agency Healthgrades recognized Mercy General Hospital as one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Surgery and one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Cardiac Care. Mercy General also received 5-Star Ratings for Coronary Artery Bypass (15 years in a row), Valve Surgery, Heart Attack and Heart Failure.
More than 500 generous grateful patients, their families and community members donated more than $22.8 million through Mercy Foundation to make the Alex G. Spanos Heart & Vascular Center possible. Stockton businessman, philanthropist and Mercy General Hospital grateful patient Alex G. Spanos and his wife, Faye, made a substantial lead gift, an important catalyst for philanthropic giving. For sixty years, Mercy Foundation has raised funds for Sisters of Mercy ministries within the Sacramento region, with one mission: To enhance the lives of people in the community.
