More than 70 percent of our patients have one or more chronic illness and depend on Mission of Mercy for long term care. Upon diagnosis of a chronic condition, we schedule regular appointments for the patient so we can effectively monitor their conditions and provide an ongoing supply of needed prescription medications.

The most common chronic illnesses treated at our clinics are:

Hypertension
Arthritis
Diabetes
Joint Pain/Bursitis
