RSS news feed What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) enables our site visitors to keep track of frequently updated events and information.  Visitors can add RSS feeds and RSS feeds from other websites to their own personalized RSS Aggregator / Reader.  RSS makes it easier for you to be updated on new information posted to our site and others without actually having to visit each website. 

RSS Aggregator / Reader

RSS feeds can be read using what is called a "reader" or "aggregator."  Several free readers can be found across the Internet.  Subscribing to a reader allows the RSS feed to be easily transformed into readable text that can contain anything from the full article to just a title with a link to the source's web page.  Aggregators constantly check the RSS feeds for new content.  When new information is found, the RSS reader will post it for you to read.

How do I set up an RSS Feed?

Currently, Mercy Medical Center offers RSS feeds for their news stories. You can use the RSS link to manually set up any RSS reader. If you are currently not subscribed with a reader, you may follow the instructions provided.
