New hospital opens in Merced
Modesto Bee

With a police officer stationed at every stoplight, motorists on G Street on Sunday saw a river of ambulances trundling from one end of town to the other. Those ambulances, each with a patient aboard, made more than 120 trips from the only hospital Merced has known for the past few years to Mercy Medical Center’s new facility on North G Street. It opened at 6 a.m. Sunday. From 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., 125 patients were moved.
