The Sisters of Charity Health System installed Paul C. Hiltz, FACHE, as president & CEO of Mercy Medical Center in October 2018. Hiltz served in this role in an interim capacity since July 2017.
Founded in 1908 by the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, Mercy Medical Center’s recent achievements and successes include delivering a higher standard of care for treatment of heart attack patients; several consecutive years of national recognition for outstanding quality care for cancer patients; new technology for preventing infections; innovative approaches to patient safety and monitoring; and investments in Jackson Township and North Canton that will expand outpatient services and help boost the regional economy.

That experience will prove valuable in his role at Mercy as payer models shift to value-based purchasing and population health management.
