Delivering Health Care Where It's Needed Most
Founded by the Sisters of Mercy, Saint Joseph's Mercy Care Services was created in 1985 by volunteer nurses and physicians and grew from modest beginnings into a "medical home" that provides an excellent, integrated system of primary medical care for adults and children, dental care, behavioral health, optometry and vision services, education and social services reaching thousands of persons in need throughout Atlanta each year. We operate five fixed-site clinics: Mercy Clinic Downtown, Mercy Clinic North, Mercy Clinic at St. Luke's, Mercy Clinic at The Gateway and Mercy Clinic at City of Refuge. Six other clinics are conducted in community partner facilities or onboard our mobile health coach.
Our clinic services are available to the uninsured, underinsured, persons of low income, the homeless and HIV-positive individuals on a sliding-fee scale according to a patient's ability to pay. We offer resource referral, supportive services, case management and mental health assessment. We also provide health education programs on a variety of topics including prenatal care, parenting and child education to Atlanta's Hispanic community.
