Overview The Sisters of Mercy arrived in North Dakota for the first time in 1884 from Omaha, Nebr., with the goal of starting a school for Indian children at Belcourt. It was 11 years later the the Rev. Mother M. Genevieve Sheridan came to Devils Lake to start a hospital. The old public school building on Fifth Street was abandoned; its purchase was negotiated for use as St. Vincent's Hospital. The hospital had two wards and 11 private rooms. The first patient was received November 3, 1895. It was soon known that the facility would not be large enough to handle the needs of the growing community, so plans were initiated to build a new one.

In June 1902, the cornerstone was laid for the first wing of the present Mercy Hospital and in May 1903, the building was completed and dedicated. At that time, the hospital was modern, had three wards, 25 private rooms, laboratory, an operating room, and an X-ray department. Another unique feature was it's School of Nursing. The entire hospital was built at an approximate cost of $75,000.

On September 17, 1936, the cornerstone was laid for the second addition, which increased the bed capacity to 75 and improved the facilities for the Nurses Training School.
