Hot Springs hospital assists sister facility in Joplin

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) -- St. Joseph's Mercy in Hot Springs is sending aid to its sister hospital, St. John's Mercy in Joplin, Mo. after a deadly storm.

For the first time in Mercy hospital history, one of its facilities is unable to provide help in a time of need.

"The hospital was made inoperable so for the foreseeable future, St. John's will not be able to see patients there," says Executive Vice President of St. Joseph's, Patrick McCruden.

In fact, they are on the receiving end this time. McCruden says when St. John's makes its formal request for aid, they will be ready.
