Mercy Health – Care first

Mercy Health is a Catholic organisation grounded in a 2,000-year tradition of caring for others. Founded by the Sisters of Mercy, Mercy Health employs over 6,000 people who provide acute and subacute hospital care, aged care, mental health programs, maternity and specialist women’s health services, early parenting services, home care services and health worker training and development. Mercy Health employs people from many cultures and backgrounds who, irrespective of their beliefs, share a common bond to care for those in need.

In November 2014 Mercy Health underwent accreditation to the National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards. Following a week-long onsite survey, Mercy Health was deemed to have met all 209 criteria relating to the 10 National Standards for health services. Mercy Mental Health also met the additional 68 mental health standards. This achievement is testament to the passion and commitment of our staff who are committed to improving the safety and quality of care for all consumers.

The National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards were developed by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care to drive the implementation of systems and improve care. The 10 Standards provide a nationally consistent statement about the level of care consumers can expect from health service organisations.
