Our Community

We employ and care for people of all faiths and no faith. Our team come from many cultures and backgrounds but share a common goal: to provide compassionate and responsive care to people in need while honouring our Mercy Values. 

Establishing Mercy Parklands

The modern story of Mercy Parklands began with the founding of the Order of the Sisters of Mercy in Dublin in 1831 by Catherine McAuley, who dedicated her life to serving people in need. 

The Sisters went on to found convents schools and hospitals across the world. They arrived in New Zealand in 1870, led by Mother Cecilia Maher.

In 1990 Mercy Hospital Auckland was looking for a standalone hospital for their aged care patients, consequently purchasing the Parklands Hospital and Retirement Home and establishing Mercy Parklands as a residential aged care facility.  

Mercy Parkland’s reputation is synonymous with excellence in care and hospitality. Our Mercy history, and our future direction, is based on responding to the most significant needs of the time.
