Mercy Health Services, Inc. (DBA Mercy Community Healthcare) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Franklin, TN with a team of more than 120 full and part–time staff, including twelve medical providers.
Mercy’s patients come from more than 30 counties in Tennessee. Why do they come from so far? In the for-profit medical communities, it is unprofitable to care for the underserved and uninsured. Consequently, 80% of Mercy’s patients are uninsured, on TennCare (Medicaid), or Medicare.
