About Us

Via Christi Health

Mercy Regional is part of Via Christi Health, the largest health system in the state of Kansas. Founded in 1995 by the Congregation of St. Joseph and the Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother, Via Christi offers acute care, senior care, retail and outpatient, and insurance services to Kansas communities.

Mercy Regional Health Center also partners with local and regional providers in Riley County and Pottawatomie County to provide the best medical care possible to citizens throughout the region.

Mercy Regional Health Center

Mercy Regional Health Center was built to serve the local community. An acute care facility licensed to operate 150 beds in two facilities, this private, not-for-profit organization was created in 1996 by combining The Saint Mary Hospital and Memorial Hospital. The primary mission of Mercy Regional is to promote community health by providing quality, compassionate healthcare services that embrace our values of quality, human dignity and community. In other words, our purpose is caring for, and about, our patients.
 
Mercy Regional is committed to meeting our community's healthcare needs through an exceptional, compassionate, modernized healthcare system. On a day-to-day basis, that means approximately 150 physicians, more than 800 employees, and about 350 volunteers serving the people of Manhattan and the surrounding areas with a wide range of quality health and wellness services.
 
It is the outstanding quality of life that retains and attracts citizens to the beautiful Flint Hills — after all, this is what creates a "home." Mercy Regional Health Center's expansion efforts are about continually improving and making home the best, safest and most comfortable place possible. It is our vision to provide the highest quality health care in the country...right here in the heartland.
