Mercy General Hospital is a nationally recognized not-for-profit private community hospital located in the East Sacramento neighborhood of Sacramento, CA. The hospital has 342 beds and over 2,000 clinical staff, and serves as the major Cardiac Surgery referral center for the Greater Sacramento Service Area Dignity Hospitals, as well as for Kaiser Permanente.[1] The Mercy Heart Institute and the Mercy Stroke Center are key features of the hospital. It is a member of the Dignity Health network.

In 2014, The Alex G. Spanos Heart & Vascular Center was opened. This four story addition to the hospital added: 71 private, family-friendly patient rooms, 21-bed cardiac ambulatory procedure area, 20-bed cardiac surgery ICU, dedicated Cardiovascular Operating Room (CVOR), and a new interventional cardiac catheterization lab.

With this expansion all cardiopulmonary services were brought under one roof: Cardiac Rehabilitation, Cardiac Support Unit, Cardiopulmonary Services (Respiratory Care, EKG, Echo), and Electrophysiology.
