Mercy Care

Member of the Council badgeWith 10 primary care clinic sites, Mercy Care is a medical home to thousands who want high-quality, comprehensive affordable healthcare services. Mercy Care proactively builds trust with Atlanta’s most vulnerable through outreach programs. These programs lead to more preventive care, housing, improved quality of life and reconnection to family and support networks.
