Who We Are
CHI Mercy Health has been a part of the Valley City community since 1928 when it was founded by the Sisters of Mercy. Their vision was to build healthier communities through a healing ministry.
Over the years we've progressed to meet the needs of the community. Whether it's a routine cataract surgery or colon cancer screening or an unexpected broken arm, we're here for you - just down the road.
CHI Mercy Health of Valley City is part of Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI): the third largest Catholic, not-for-profit health care system in the country. CHI operates hospitals, long-term care facilities, assisted living facilities and residential units in 19 states.

CHI Mercy Health is excited to continue holding monthly, free, community health workshops at the Gaukler Family Wellness Center over the summer months.
We have held monthly workshops since January including topics such as: Organ and Blood Donation, Heart Health and Fitness, Healthy Heart Tips and Tastes, Domestic Violence Awareness, and two Free CPR classes.
Our next workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, June 20, from 7:00pm-8:00pm in the first floor conference room at the Gaukler Family Wellness Center. The topic will focus on Chronic Pain management. Our workshop will be led by CHI Mercy Health’s Chief Nurse Anesthetist, Clark J. Kruta, CRNA, APRN, MA, and Operating Room Manager Stephanie Kruta, RN, MSN, to learn about effective treatments for Chronic Pain. Chronic pain is best managed if the plan of care is individualized to each patient. It should include at a minimum: physical therapy evaluation and stretching, regular exercise, education on self -care (sleep/nutrition/lifestyle), and behavioral health care. Learn about effective methods to treat chronic pain including pain injections.
It is the mission of CHI Mercy Health to “…create healthier communities.” and we are bringing these monthly, free to the community workshops to help local individual’s lead healthier lives. Part of these workshops is funded through a Center for Rural Health Flex Collaboration Grant that CHI Mercy Health was awarded. Please contact Stephanie Mayfield in the CHI Mercy Health Foundation/Mission office (direct #845-6557 or email@example.com) with any questions you have regarding any of the workshops.
