Dignity Health’s Mercy Hospital of Folsom is dedicated to delivering compassionate, patient-centered care and is an avid supporter of the local community. As the community’s only primary acute care provider for the last 40 years, the mission-driven hospital is passionate about both improving the health of the people they serve and actively supporting the Folsom community they are proud to call home.
“Serving the community is at the heart of what we do,” says Lisa Hausmann, president of Mercy Hospital of Folsom. “Our longstanding legacy in Folsom has allowed us to deeply integrate ourselves in the fabric of the city and grow together to meet the future needs of our community.”
Demonstrating their commitment to support Folsom’s future growth, Dignity Health is in the initial stages to build a Medical Office Building (MOB) that will provide outpatient care services. Located in the new Folsom Ranch neighborhood, the MOB is phase one of what will eventually be a state-of-the-art integrated medical center that will expand access to the safe, high-quality and affordable care Dignity Health provides.

“Health care continues to evolve, as does the health needs of our community,” Hausmann says. “Dignity Health is positioned to meet these changes so we can continue to provide the highest quality of care that is affordable and accessible.”
The last three years have been challenging for the health care industry because of the pandemic. Hausmann recognizes these challenges and says that the hospital had a choice — to come together or fall apart. “We came together and are stronger for it,” she says. “What makes Mercy Folsom so unique is our incredible team that shares a sense of purpose driven by our mission. Our collective focus has been on culture and creating a strong, high-performing team, which includes offering professional development opportunities for staff at every level.”
With Open Enrollment now open, Hausmann says she hopes residents will consider Dignity Health for their health care needs. “We want to care for as many lives in Folsom as we can,” Hausmann says.
