Mercy Medical Center celebrates first anniversary of St. Paul Square

In November, Mercy Medical Center celebrated one year of caring for the residents of Northeast Canton at Mercy Medical Center St. Paul Square. The first to provide services in this designated Health Professionals Shortage Area (HPSA), St. Paul Square operates under the medical home concept of team-based health care delivery. The state-of-the-art, handicapped-accessible facility offers primary and dental care, as well as behavioral health through Community Services of Stark County.

Sister Carolyn Capuano, HM, vice president of Mercy Mission and Ministry, says collaboration with many local organizations was key to establishing this philanthropically funded health center – formerly a convent and church rectory. The Most Reverend George V. Murry, S.J., Ph.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Youngstown, gave Mercy the building for $1 per year.

“When Mercy learned of overwhelming health care needs of people in Northeast Canton, we recognized that opening a medical home was the right thing to do,” says Capuano. “Bringing services here fit our mission completely. Our neighbors tell us our presence is a sign of hope and is making a positive difference in their lives.”

Mercy Medical Center is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
