The story of Mercy begins over 90 years ago during the devastating flu pandemic of 1918, when we first opened our doors as Queen's Hospital on the corner of Congress and State Streets in Portland, Maine. Over the years, Mercy has faced many challenges, among those a growing and changing population, and dramatically different medical technologies. As we continue to fulfill Mercy's mission of service to the changing health needs of the greater Portland community, we will be implementing a two-phase plan that ultimately relocates most of our State Street services to the Fore River campus - though State Street will continue to operate as a full-service hospital and 24-hour Emergency Department. We plan to begin work on Phase II of the Fore River campus within the next few years, and expect to fully relocate well in time for Mercy's 100-year anniversary in 2018. Mercy State Street Campus is located at the corner of State & Spring Streets. Mercy Fore River Campus is located on Fore River Parkway.
