A Case Study of the Spiritual Formation Programs of the Mercy Health System



This is a case study of Mercy Medical Center, a Catholic hospital located in Rogers, Arkansas. The purpose of this case study is to examine the spiritual development programs of the Mercy Medical Center. I researched the development of the plans throughout the existence of the initiative, as well as the programs currently in practice today. This case study was performed with the objective to evaluate the success of employee development programs in health care and document how these programs enhance the value of the service organization.
