The Case for Mercy
Compelled by the grace of God and the biblical mandate to serve our neighbors in “word and deed,” Mercy Community Healthcare is distinct as THE community health center in this region. Opened in 1999 through the efforts of the citizens of Franklin and many in the faith community, Mercy fosters an “everyone is welcome” attitude.
Today, Mercy has more than 165 full- and part–time staff. Each of our physicians is board-certified. Our patients come from more than 30 counties in Tennessee. Why do they come from so far? Great doctors giving great care! In the for-profit medical communities, it is unprofitable to care for the un- and under-insured. Consequently, 67% of Mercy’s patients are uninsured or on TennCare, which is why we need your support.
