Mullen, President and CEO, Mercy Health Services, Mercy Medical Center.

We believe that engaged employees enable us to consistently provide exceptional care to our patients daily, in keeping with the values and the mission of the Sisters of Mercy. This honor is further testimony to the efforts of everyone who makes Mercy a great place to work,” Mr. Mullen said.
