Today, St. Mary's is the largest medical facility in the region and the Tri-State's largest healthcare employer with more than 2,800 employees. Its Regional Heart Institute, Regional Cancer Center, Regional Neuroscience Center and ER/Level II Trauma Center provide advanced care to the people of the tri-state region.
