Mercy Care

Mercy CareSince 1985, Mercy Care has been a healing presence among Atlanta's homeless and uninsured populations by providing high quality integrated healthcare. In the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy, care reflects an understanding of and respect for vulnerable patients. As access and coverage inequities persist, a growing number of families and individuals rely on Mercy Care, a Federally Qualified Health Center, to meet their primary care needs. A network of eight clinics and five mobile clinic sites provide excellent medical care and are staffed with a mix of employed and volunteer physicians, dentists, dental hygienists, medical assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and optometrists. By providing a medical home for patients, Mercy Care alleviates the burden on hospital emergency rooms throughout metro Atlanta. In addition to primary care, an array of critical wrap-around services including dental and vision care, radiology, prenatal education, integrated behavioral health, HIV and homeless case management services are available.  Mercy Care’s committed staff, tireless volunteers and caring donors are a vital part of the city’s medical safety net, catching those who fall through the cracks of mainstream healthcare. Because it is with healing that hope comes alive. And hope is the best medicine.

In 2013, Mercy Care’s clinics provided medical care to 12,796 individuals; 83% were at or below poverty and 67% were experiencing homelessness. Less than 5% of Mercy Care’s $15 million budget came from net patient revenue. For the remainder, Mercy Care relies on compassionate donors, grantors, volunteers and partners to support our mission.
