Regions Hospital - For Nurses - Mercy Case

Mercy Paul RN, Care Management

When Mercy was eight years old, her father took her to a leper institution that was run by Mother Teresa. There, she saw men, women and children as outcasts of society. “I remember being gripped with a sense of sadness. I didn’t realize how much this experience would shape my career.” After this, Mercy felt a strong and lasting desire to help others. Mercy has completed a dual degree-MSN and MHA and is a supervisor in our care management department.
