On the morning of May 18, “Mercy Baby” families joined in the 100th anniversary celebrations by taking a group Mercy family photo on the lawn in front of the hospital. Multi-generations participated in the day, parents and their children to grandparents and grandchildren. The families joined in the lobby and shared their history at Mercy. All involved enjoyed a great morning.
Established on the Feast of St. Patrick on March 17, 1913 in a 13-bed former sanitarium in Hempstead by the Nursing Sisters of the Sick Poor, Congregation of the Infant Jesus, Mercy has grown and developed over the decades into one of Nassau County’s leading medical institutions.
