Our Story
Mercy Breast Center

Leaders in Women's Health

1994 brought fanfare, celebrations and a special focus on women. For the first time, Women’s Health was elevated in stature in a way it had never been before. Born out of a commitment by the Sisters of Mercy that women and children would be a top priority, Mercy Medical Center launched its first dedicated Center of Excellence, The Center for Women’s Health and Medicine at Mercy.

That commitment has become a promise fulfilled. Top-rated surgeons, nurses and experts have led our Women’s Center ensuring our patients receive the best possible care. State-of-the-art technology, ongoing research and clinical trials, first-class facilities, as well as amenities, support services and patient education all have been carefully put in place to meet the needs of our patients and their families.

2019 marks 25 years of achievements, accolades and milestones for The Weinberg Center for Women’s Health and Medicine. We are proud to be the hospital-of-choice for women across Maryland and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Driving Excellence

Throughout the past two and one-half decades there have been numerous regional and national achievements. These are important, gratifying and acknowledge the remarkable work of our doctors, nurses and staff. But they only tell part of the story. Saving lives, caring for patients who fought overwhelming odds and loving the families of those who lost their battle with cancer is what separates The Women’s Center at Mercy from others.

Partners in Mission

The Woman's Doctor

It was unprecedented. When Mercy partnered with WBAL-TV to air weekly health education segments on The Woman’s Doctor, many believed the value would be limited. Instead, the opposite happened. Women became more informed and active in their health care.

The Woman’s Doctor is one of the longest running programs in Baltimore television history. 


Community Events

The spirit of Mercy is a powerful force that has transformed lives. Memorable events such as Brananza, Breast Fest, National Cancer Survivors’ Day and countless others have given Mercy the opportunity to work with remarkable women throughout our community.

These events have helped raise awareness and some much-needed funding to provide care for the underserved and invaluable program improvement support.


Together we can continue to raise the bar of excellence in addressing the full spectrum of women's health issues.
