Community Impact

Mercy’s community impact goes beyond the compassionate care and services provided by our exceptional healthcare professionals every day. As one of the largest employers in Greater Portland, we have more than 1,400 dedicated employees who live, work, and raise their families in our community. The local economy benefits from Mercy’s $400 million in annual economic contributions and more than $43 million community health education and benefits every year. In addition, Mercy educates, guides, and inspires the next generation of healthcare providers.  Clinical internships and training opportunities expertly prepare prospective nurses, physicians, lab technicians, pharmacists, and occupational therapists from the University of Southern Maine, University of New England, Saint Joseph’s College, Southern Maine Community College, and other institutions of higher learning.
