2011 Annual Report
Through Many Eyes
“As the Sisters of Mercy before us, we bring to life the healing ministry of Jesus through our compassionate care and exceptional service.”
To do something extraordinary, one must step away from the ordinary. That’s what Catherine McAuley did when she asked the Sisters of Mercy to venture into communities to tend to the sick and marginalized. At a time when many religious orders remained cloistered, it was a revolutionary idea. Her vision quickly came to life well beyond Dublin, Ireland, as thousands of Sisters shared in her ardent desire to help people. Our 38,000 co-workers share a common spirit of service today. We see how our diverse skills and ideas work together to dramatically change how we care for people. What was once “pioneering” is now becoming our new standard of care. And we’re determined to reach even further, so the many people we serve in seven states can also imagine a better future for themselves and their children.

How One Person Makes A Difference,
Thousands Of Times Each Day
Unlike any other story in our recent history, people want to hear about Joplin. Mercy leaders have spoken to countless groups since the May 2011 tornado. They recount tales of loss and recovery … unimaginable damage and rebuilding. The real story, however, is not about a twisted shell of a hospital or of construction cranes setting new steel. It’s about the potential in each of us to overcome challenges. Rebuilding in Joplin has required the focus and talents of thousands of people, each willing and able to do the right things. In less than a year, we progressively provided better facilities for families there. We partnered with the Joplin community to make sure we were providing the most needed services. We imagined how we could make things even better than they were. It took lots of hands working together, and the job isn’t done yet. This same exciting work is taking place everywhere in Mercy today. As we unite under one name and symbol, we’re shaping the future of health care around you to be more effective, convenient, personal. Just one co-worker can bring Mercy to a patient or family member. When we’re all working with that same goal, great things happen. You’ll see some examples in this report. Our new name is a tribute to our heritage. Its accompanying symbol not only celebrates the unique gifts each of us lends to our work, but our shared vision to improve people’s health and lives. If you haven’t already, you’ll soon see our new logo and signs on Mercy buildings in your area. Thank you for your interest and support of Mercy. Blessings and best wishes to all in 2012.

One devastating storm,
Nightmare Comes to Life
On May 22, 2011, the unthinkable happened. Within minutes, an ordinary springtime Sunday turned deadly as an F5 tornado ripped through Joplin. It destroyed nearly everything along a path a mile wide and 22 miles long – including Mercy Hospital.
thousands of helping hands
In only 45 seconds, a deadly tornado destroyed Mercy’s hospital in Joplin, Mo., but it didn’t break our spirit or commitment Joplin. In fact, it’s stronger than ever.
off, and everything large or small became a potentially deadly projectile in the voracious winds. Miraculously, the staff, along with visiting friends and families, safely evacuated the patients – through darkness, ankle-deep water, broken glass and fallen beams. Sadly, five patients on life support died, as did one visitor. While the basic hospital structure withstood the storm, most everything else was destroyed.
Emerging from the Rubble
Mercy co-workers worked closely together, and quickly, to establish a triage center outside the crippled emergency department. Co-workers who weren’t scheduled to work that day came by the hundreds to assist in the evacuation and to provide medical care. This was one of the deadliest tornadoes in U.S. history. More than 180 patients and 117 Mercy co-workers were in the hospital, and one surgery was in progress, when the tornado hit. While caregivers moved patients into interior hallways or shielded those who couldn’t be moved with their own bodies, windows and walls were blown out, portions of the roof pulled Thanks to our electronic health record system, installed in Joplin just a few weeks prior, medical records for all 183 patients were readily available. Within a few hours, a substitute hospital was set up in downtown Joplin. Many co-workers walked miles across the rubble to carry materials salvaged from the hospital.
Mercy promises Joplin it will have a hospital back up in one week. By the following Sunday, a 60-bed mobile hospital was functioning.
Mercy breaks ground on new Mercy Hospital in Joplin.
Within less than a year, Mercy opened a component hospital with 120 beds and increased services.
By 2015, a new permanent Mercy Hospital will open with 424 beds.
An arrangement with the nearby McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital in Carthage helped open additional beds and surgical space.
In August, a temporary hard-sided hospital replaced the tent hospital
The only thing unscathed at the hospital was a statue of the Mercy cross being elevated by two strong hands. It quickly became an inspirational icon to all who came to view the destruction and those involved in the clean-up and rebuilding.
“Our ministry has never been confined to a building. Our people and our spirit are at the core of who we are and what we do. We are already rising from the rubble stronger than ever before.”
~ Lynn Britton, Mercy President and CEO
Beginning to Rebuild
Mercy immediately pledged to remain in the community, keep Joplin co-workers on the payroll and give them recovery assistance. A mobile, 60-bed tent hospital was erected near the destroyed hospital on a cleared parking lot. By the end of June, planning for a new hospital was on a fast track. An arrangement with the nearby McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital in Carthage helped open additional beds and surgical space, and put nearly 800 co-workers back to work. Another 1,800 found work at other Mercy facilities. In August, a temporary hard-sided hospital replaced the tent hospital and a location for the permanent replacement hospital, roughly three miles from the devastated campus, was selected. The facility should be ready in spring 2015. To meet the immediate needs of the community, Mercy opened a component hospital in April. This 150,000 squarefoot facility was constructed from 224 modules in less than six months. Expanded services include surgery, an ICU, obstetrics and pediatrics, and more beds.
• Steel, aluminum, copper, concrete and asphalt are being salvaged and recycled. • Once the destroyed hospital buildings have been removed, Mercy will restore the land. We have already donated 12 acres to the Joplin school district for a new elementary school that will replace two schools destroyed in the tornado.
“God Loves a Cheerful Giver”
– Catherine McAuley, Sisters of Mercy founder
Keeping the Earth in Mind
Mercy has developed plans to assure the new hospital is built in ways that preserve southwest Missouri’s beauty. • 400 native saplings were hand-dug and transported from the new hospital site to a nearby nursery. These saplings will beautify the grounds of the new hospital. • Large trees were harvested into lumber to help rebuild Joplin. • Fixtures from homes being cleared from the site will be used by Joplin’s Habitat for Humanity.
In the months since the tragedy, more than $1.3 million has been given by co-workers, community members and businesses for Joplin tornado relief. The donors are too numerous to name individually, but we would especially like to thank: • The Bank of America Charitable Foundation, Inc. • Branson Cares • Coventry Health Care Inc. • Crossland Construction Company, Inc. • MHA Center for Education • Missouri Foundation for Health • United Way of Southwest Missouri and Southeast Kansas Our gratitude goes to countless others who gave of their time, talent and generosity to help us continue our ministry in Joplin.

2,200 Providers: One Mercy Clinic
In 2011, we launched Mercy Clinic, bringing together more than 1,600 primary and specialty care physicians and 600 advanced practitioners.
Your Mercy Team
Patients and families are learning the benefits of having a care team that’s truly working together to keep them well. Ask a new mom who quickly needs her child’s immunization records or a newly diagnosed diabetic senior living alone. These patients and many others have found Mercy Clinic. The team continues to grow, ensuring patients receive care that is: • Complete. Family medicine doctors, internists, pediatricians and OB-GYNs easily work together with cardiologists, surgeons, pediatric ENTs and other specialists. • Coordinated. With our industry-leading electronic health record, information is complete, up to date and readily available to all team members, wherever a patient is seen. • Connected. We’re using today’s online and mobile communications technology, such as MyMercy, our online patient tool, to stay connected with our patients and their families. • Convenient. Our goal is to create greater access, reduce barriers and ease the path our customers take to receive the health care they and their families need.
Adding More Providers
Community leaders and residents in many Mercy communities spoke. And we listened. We recently announced plans to add: • 500 new primary care physicians in the next five years. • 300 specialty care providers. • More nurse practitioners, physician assistants and care managers.
A Place to Call Home
The days of simply treating sick patients when they arrive at the office are over. Health care costs are rising, America is aging and more people are expected to have at least one chronic illness later in life. A medical home approach can be the answer. Mercy physicians and their staffs in five Mercy Clinic offices have transformed their practices into certified medical homes over the past year. And we plan to add another 20-25 medical homes during the upcoming year. The staffs of our medical homes focus on building relationships with patients that go beyond office visits. With additional team members, greater use of technology and new approaches, a medical home takes responsibility for meeting each patient’s physical and mental health care needs, including prevention, wellness and acute and chronic care. This includes coordinating specialty and hospital care, home health and community services and support. In addition, our medical homes strive to be more available, with shorter waiting times for urgent needs, walk-in and afterhours services, plus around-the-clock telephone or MyMercy electronic access to members of our care team.
One of Many . . . Medical Homes Make a Difference
64-year-old Steve Ward still remembers the day he bent down to put on his shoes and couldn’t get them on because his feet were so swollen. He was wise to seek help quickly because his condition required hospitalization. After more than a week, he went home with a new defibrillator in his chest and a diagnosis of congestive heart failure. Today, Steve’s care team at Mercy Clinic Primary Care in Bella Vista, Ark., monitors the readings that come in from a device in his home. Dr. Mark Lee will step in if Steve starts gaining weight or his blood pressure is out of a safe range. “The monitoring equipment allows us to be proactive about our patient’s health,” says Dr. Lee. “It also means they have a whole team of health care professionals looking out for them.”
Kids Are Number One
Kids are our future. The communities we serve have told us that keeping them healthy is a top priority. We agree.
Teaching Healthy Habits
“Help us keep our kids healthy.” That was a loud-and-clear message we heard from our community roundtable meetings. “Our future success and prosperity is built on healthy, well-caredfor children.” In response, Mercy quickly partnered with HealthTeacher to make health education available to nearly 737,000 students in 1,695 schools across Mercy’s service areas in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. Mercy has committed $5 million over five years to underwrite the program. HealthTeacher is a worldwide provider of online health lesson plans and resources focused on improving health from kindergarten through 12th grade. For more than a decade, HealthTeacher has been used with great success in some of the nation’s largest school districts.
includes our children’s hospitals in St. Louis and Springfield, Mo., and our 700 primary care providers and 125 pediatric specialists located across our four-state service area. Telemedicine is another important part of the strategy, making hard-to-find specialties available to families in rural communities. Our specialized children’s programs include: • • • • • • Sleep disorders Pediatric diabetes Specialized cancer care Urology Critical care Reconstructive surgery • • • • • • Neurosurgery Orthopedics Cardiology Cancer Autism Behavioral health
Expert Kids Care
Mercy’s focus on kids is as old as our ministry. The challenge today is to bring children the care they need, especially in locations where access to pediatric specialists is difficult. Mercy Children’s Hospital Services does just that. It brings physicians and other Mercy leaders together as their own operating division to further build services and programs for kids. Mercy Children’s
Mercy’s work on building children’s services in the upcoming year includes: • Renovation and redesign. Mercy Children’s Hospital in Springfield will expand to include new services and more convenience. • Research. Mercy in Oklahoma City is conducting first-time research with a “vein viewer” to start IV’s more eaily in tiny newborns and save them from the discomfort of multiple needle sticks. • Telemedicine. Parents can now get the right specialist for their child, a pediatric neurologist for example, even if that physician is hundreds of miles away.
Learning is vital to protecting kids’ health for the future. Our partnership with HealthTeacher provides educators with lesson plans and resources focused on early health education. Over 737,000 students in 1,695 schools now have access to these resources. Mercy has committed $5 million over five years to underwrite the program.
One of Many . . . Making Kids Care Easy and Complete
Grayson Langan was three years old when doctors at Mercy Clinic in Washington suspected he had salmonella poisoning. Grayson was sent to Mercy Children’s Hospital in St. Louis for a few days for treatment. All Mercy patients have a single medical record that is available to their care team in any location. This makes care more personal and coordinated – great for parents who are already concerned about their kids. “Everything they had in the computer in Washington was already there in St. Louis,” his mom Stacy said. After Grayson returned home, the local health department required more testing before he could go back to daycare. Since MyMercy also allows parents to access information about their children, Stacy could see Grayson’s results right away. “They sent me an email and I could log on to see the results. It was fast and the worry was over,” she said.
Telemedicine: Virtual One -to-One Care
Technology allows Mercy to reach patients in new ways, especially those living in small communities that lack specialty and emergency care. Telemedicine is providing expert attention that saves and improves their lives.
First Virtual Care Team
Patients value a personal connection with their doctor. It’s a chance to understand more about their health issues, ask questions and share concerns. Now telemedicine uses two-way video technology for a face-to-face, coordinated experience … even when doctors and patients are miles apart. Mercy’s Virtual Care Center is a $90 million investment in connecting people to the care they need. The center will be staffed by hundreds of doctors and nurses linked electronically to Mercy hospitals, clinics and even patient homes using
telemedicine technology. Office visits won’t be a thing of the past, but the center will instead offer specialized services that are hard to find in some communities: • Radiology and pathology – Virtual teams interpret digital images and other testing information 24/7, for faster diagnosis and treatment. • Specialty physicians – People in rural areas can have faster, more efficient access to care via telemedicine. • Nurse On Call – With a simple telephone call, patients can get help deciding the most appropriate level of care. • Remote disease management – Patients are “connected” to the center via in-home technologies to monitor weight, blood pressure, blood glucose and more.
When Minutes Matter
“The moment you have a stroke, the sand in the hourglass starts running out, and if you don’t get care quickly, many people die or have to live with severe disabilities,” says Chris Veremakis, MD, medical director of Mercy’s Center for Innovative Care. Expanded stroke care was a logical first step in Mercy’s telemedicine strategy because of its great potential to help people, especially in remote locations. Using two-way video and other technology, Mercy neurology/ stroke experts work with a patient’s local care team to diagnose and treat stroke in the ER. The neurologist can interact and talk with the patient to make a full assessment. For some patients, a clot-busting drug called t-PA may help restore blood flow and prevent damage to the brain. Stroke care is paving the way for other specialty care that may be offered through telemedicine in the future. Imagine, for example, parents in a small town consulting with a pediatric urologist without a long drive or overnight stay.
One of Many . . . Stroke Expertise is Always Available
Buddy Bilyeu lives in Spokane, MO. His Sunday took an unexpected turn as he was getting ready for church. “I couldn’t pick up the toothbrush,” he recalls. “In fact, my right side wasn’t responding at all.” Buddy’s wife Judy, a retired RN, recognized the signs of stroke and immediately called 911. He was transported to Mercy Hospital Springfield. Thanks to Mercy’s telestroke program, the local stroke team always has quick access to a neurology specialist. Sometimes a simple phone call is all that’s needed. Neurologists may also use Mercy’s two-way video system to evaluate patients when needed. In Buddy’s case, the stroke team quickly administered a clot-busting drug and performed other life-saving procedures. “I don’t remember much about what happened when I reached the hospital,” Buddy admits, “but I felt peaceful and was released in 48 hours with no restrictions. I call that a miracle.”
Lots of Medical Information, All In One Place
Mercy is a leader in the use of electronic health records that make sure a patient’s medical information is complete and readily available to caregivers and patients alike.
One Patient, One Record
There was a time when a patient’s medical information (doctor notes, lab results, and more) could be kept in many different places. Not anymore. Mercy’s electronic health record stores everything in one place, so doctors, registration staff and other care team members can instantly share the same information. There’s no need for patients to repeatedly write down health history, medications and past treatments when they visit different locations. And the benefits go much deeper. With the EHR available at most Mercy locations (and more hospital locations added in 2011), care teams use information to reduce medication errors and unnecessary tests, improve patient safety, and even make decisions based on the bestknown treatment recommendations.
Helping Patients Take Charge
Our electronic health record powers MyMercy, our online patient tool. Over 220,000 patients now can have secure, online access to their own health information. If they choose a Mercy Clinic physician, they can also message their doctor with questions or updates, request appointments online and request prescription renewals. In a growing mobile world, patients like the ability to access their information from anywhere they have a computer or Internet-enabled device.
““I feel like I finally have ownership of my medical care. I feel like I’m now in partnership with my doctor. I’m not alone. We’re a team.”
–Taresa Copeland, 62, patient
One of Many . . . MyMercy is a Family Affair
Caryn Adams was diagnosed with lupus in her mid-20s. MyMercy not only helps her manage her own health, but also keeps track of three kids and her husband, Tim. The Oklahoma City couple also helps Tim’s ailing 80-year-old father who suffers from dementia and other chronic conditions. “If at the end of the day, I need to get my daughter in the next day to our doctor, all I have to do is go on to MyMercy,” said Caryn. “It only takes a second. I can pull up MyMercy wherever we are and see what I need to see. How cool is that?” Caryn’s husband Tim serves as medical power of attorney for his father. “Before MyMercy, tracking my dad’s health was chaotic because we did it by calling and talking,” Tim shared. “Now, we have one electronic record that we can refer to 24/7.”
Hundreds of locations: One Name
This past year, our facilities began adopting a common Mercy name and logo. What has always been our only mission is now our only name: Mercy.
Bringing Us Together
We recognize that we continue the work of the Sisters of Mercy. A common Mercy identity helps us connect our coworkers and facilities, and better serve our patients. We want people to instantly associate our name and visual identity with an exceptional health care experience, knowing they now have access to a large team of skilled people and services that extends well beyond what is physically located in their local communities. The most visual part of this transition – announcing new names and placing new signs – will be
complete by the end of 2012.
Honoring the Sisters
Our connection to the Sisters of Mercy and the principles that guide our ministry remain rock solid. In fact, taking on the Mercy name has been warmly supported by the Sisters and is seen as a way to honor and preserve the Sisters of Mercy legacy. In addition, Mercy’s new logo is a contemporary version of the original cross which Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, adopted for her ministry. The outer extensions of the cross represent a ministry that is diverse but aligned around a common purpose. The inner cross is a reminder that we should dedicate ourselves to the work God has given us, take up our own cross and serve with a deep respect for others.

Community Benefits: One More Way We Serve
Taking care of everyone who lives in the areas we serve is important to us. Mercy provided community and financial benefits valued at $272 million to communities in our areas of service.
Charity care – free or unreimbursed health care we offer to people who are poor and who lack insurance or the financial means to pay for their care. Charity care doesn’t include bad debt, which is health care provided to people with the means to pay for some or all of their care, but who don’t.
Community services offered for free or at a financial loss – programs such as community health education, community-based clinical services such as health screenings for people who are poor or uninsured, community health initiatives addressing specific health needs among the poor and vulnerable, health care support groups and pastoral outreach programs.
Shortfalls from Medicaid reimbursement – financial losses we incur providing health care to people who are poor but for whom we receive some reimbursement through the government’s Medicaid program.

Mercy’s Financial Performance Fiscal Year 2011
Mercy ended the fiscal year 2011 with $85 million in net operating income, 95% of our budgeted results of $89.5 million.1 Compared to fiscal year 2010, our operating results increased by approximately $13 million, or 18%. We experienced soft volumes, both in our hospitals as well as our physician clinics, with flat, and in some cases, lower volumes compared to the previous year. We were significantly impacted by several substantial winter storms in numerous Mercy communities. Additionally, we launched our electronic health record in four communities, which further influenced volumes and increased expenses. During fiscal year 2011, we experienced an increase in charity care and bad debt. On the other hand, our operating results benefited significantly from improved revenue management, which included generating additional funds for the services we provide, utilizing automation and reducing the cost associated with our revenue cycle. Through these efforts, we realized approximately $70 million in increased revenue and lower costs. Mercy leaders are pursuing revenue and expense initiatives to ensure we achieve our fiscal year 2012 operating budget of $97.2 million, a 14% increase over fiscal year 2011.
