Springfield Regional Medical Center is celebrating a decade of serving the community at its current location.
While the seeds of our ministry’s caring for our communities dates back to 1887 when Springfield businessmen Ross Mitchell and John Thomas donated funds to establish the first local hospital, this celebration is focused on the first 10 years of the Springfield Regional Medical Center and our commitment to provide the highest quality and most compassionate healthcare for future generations.
Mercy Health – Springfield Regional Medical Center, at its current location of 100 Medical Center Dr., has seen several advancements in access and technology since opening its doors on Nov. 13, 2011.
