What is Mercy Care?
Mercy Care is a registered company set up to manage the four voluntary Nursing Homes in the Northern Province. Avila in Bessbrook, Co. Armagh, St. Joseph's in Warrenpoint, Co. Down, Our Mother of Mercy in Newry, Co. Down and St. Macartan's in Clogher, Co. Tyrone. Although all of the Homes are run by lay management, Sisters of Mercy continue on the management board and also act as pastoral carers.

It is our aim to constantly and consistently deliver the highest standards of quality of life to every patient in our Homes through the provision of care which is sensitive to individual needs.
