The Sisters determined that if the Perth community was to receive the high quality health care they deserved, the Congregation would have to build their own hospital.
This generous, innovative and courageous response to an issue has been part of the Sisters of Mercy character since their foundation.
Today, Mercy Hospital Mount Lawley is a Modern, Not-for-profit private hospital that continues to proudly serve its community with the same philosophy of exceptional care started by the Sisters.
Our Vision, Mission and Values
Our MissionHere at Mercy, Mission plays an integral part in everything we do from corporate level right down to our day to day work in dealing with people.
MercyCare is an organisation which was established by the Perth Sisters of Mercy to carry on the work which they began in Perth in 1846 and continued until 1999. Today, MercyCare is a Catholic organisation in its own right inspired by and faithful to the vision and spirit of Catherine McAuley, the founder of the Sisters of Mercy. This history and experience influenced the formation of our Vision, Mission and Values statement. The staff and Board of MercyCare participated in a process which reflected on our role in society and the core of what we are about. This statement is what we aspire to be and live towards every day.

Our vision is for a world where God's abundant love and mercy is celebrated by all and where every person has access to justice, equity and opportunities for wellbeing.
We realise this vision by working together in the spirit of the Gospels and with the ideals of Catherine McAuley. We cherish our vision as an inspiration for our decision making and as a motivation for our service.
Our mission is to bring compassion to life.
We align ourselves with the life-giving mission of Christ through practical acts of mercy and by responding energetically to the changing needs of people in our community. Through quality, caring services and through advocacy, we work for justice and we support people to enrich their lives. Our core commitment is to those who are vulnerable and distressed in times of disadvantage.
We hold the values of respect, justice, compassion, integrity and excellence to be central to our culture and to the achievement of our vision and mission.
We demonstrate these values in our creative responsiveness to social need: our persistence in the face of challenge: our commitment to human dignity and our hospitality to all.
Appreciating our diversity, we work together to create a climate of trust and collegiality so that in our relationships with each other and with those we serve, we honour each person's gifts and work.
