The numbers are in, and Mercy Hospital experienced a 17% increase in inpatients and a 12.5% increase in outpatients from the previous year. These increases may be partially attributed to completion and dedication of the surgical wing in January 2019, and addition of patient admission consultation rooms by the May 2019 Mission Team. This does not include the thousands served during mobile clinics by Mercy Village Outreach Services. 733 patients received inpatient treatment and 5,473 patients received outpatient services in 2019.
