OUR Leadership


Thomas R. Mullen

President & CEO, Mercy Health Services

Thomas R. Mullen holds the distinct honor of serving as the first lay President and CEO of Mercy Health Services and its subsidiaries Mercy Medical Center, Stella Maris, St. Paul Place Specialists and the Mercy Health Foundation.

The Sisters of Mercy selected Tom in 1999 to lead the downtown hospital and further their mission of care and compassion. Since then he has earned his place among the nation's leading health care executives. Many honors and distinctions have been garnered by Mercy under his leadership. Mercy is proud to have been:

  • Recipient of the Greater Baltimore Committee  MBE Award: Bridging the Gap
  • Named to the nation's list of Top 100 Performance Leaders by Solucient
  • Recipient of the Campaign for Medicare Excellence Leadership Award by Delmarva Foundation
  • Named One of America's 10 Best Women's Centers by Self Magazine
  • Named One of the Top 100 Hospitals in the United States by HCIA & William Mercer

Tom also has led Mercy's efforts to revitalize the neighborhood surrounding the hospital. Mercy’s crowning achievement under Tom’s leadership was the opening of a new replacement hospital, the $400 million, 20-story Mary Catherine Bunting Center in December 2010. The beautiful new hospital features 15 state-of-the-art operating rooms and 196 all-private patient rooms with breathtaking views of the Baltimore skyline. Three levels of rooftop gardens and a multi-denominational Chapel of Light are among the building’s highlights. The new hospital is connected by an all-weather bridge to a 1,300 parking garage one block west of I-83, the JFX South.

In 2003, Mercy opened The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Center, a signature $42 million outpatient center featuring expressive, metropolitan architecture as well as the Saratoga parking center. The Weinberg Center houses the renowned Weinberg Center for Women's Health & Medicine as well as the acclaimed Institute for Cancer Care at Mercy.

In addition, Mercy served as catalyst with its corporate neighbors and the City of Baltimore, on behalf of the residents in the downtown business district, in revitalizing Preston Gardens, an historic park across from the hospital.

Tom earned a Masters Degree in Finance from Loyola College, is a graduate of the University of Maryland in College Park and remains a devoted fan of Terrapin sports. Among his professional honors, Tom was appointed a Commissioner for the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission (HSCRC). He also has served as Treasurer of the Executive Committee for the Maryland Hospital Association (MHA) and as Chairman of Financial Policy for MHA. Prior to being named President and CEO of Mercy Health Services, Tom served as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Mercy from 1991 to 1999.

In 2004, Tom was the recipient of the Maryland Stars of Life Award from the Maryland Institute for Emergency Services Systems (MIEMS) for his efforts in savings the lives of two young men pulled from the freezing waters of Chesapeake Bay with the help of his wife, Rosemary. Tom also is the recipient of the Health Services Leadership Award from the Baltimore Area Council, Boy Scouts of America.

Tom Mullen is respected as a man of vision, integrity and superior leadership.
