Located in the community of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, in the Fox River Valley along the western shore of Lake Winnebago, Mercy Medical Center provides a wide array of health care options to the roughly 70,000 immediate residents and the 160,000-plus citizens in the greater metropolitan area. These options include emergency/trauma care and surgical services as well as many medical specialties such as cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, intensive care, obstetrics and neurosurgery. Mercy is the home of the Kennedy Center for the Hip and Knee, a nationally recognized program for hip replacement. The facility boasts 157 patient beds and more than 300 medical staff.
Patient care is paramount for Mercy and the board regularly looks to stay on the cutting edge. But investing in enhancements to its health care offerings isn’t limited to new facilities, highly trained staff members or medical equipment, as a patient would know it.
