Angel of Mercy Hospital

Angel of Mercy Hospital is a location in Season One of Showtime's series DEXTER.

It is abandoned hospital in Miami.



Harry Morgan's father was employed as a janitor in this hospital, before "working his way up to Chief of Maintenance." Two weeks before it closed, Harry and Dexter had their photo taken together in front of the building. While there, Harry experienced brief heart pain.

The Ice Truck Killer held Tony Tucci hostage in the abandoned hospital and performed live amputations on him. He left the body parts on display in public places that were reminiscent of Dexter Morgan's childhood (such as Petrie Beach and the McCaffrey Pumpkin Patch).

Dexter found Tucci in this building, abandoned, cut up, and begging for a merciful death. Since Tony did not fit The Code of Harry, Dexter refused to end his life. He sent an anonymous tip to Debra to check out the hospital. When Tony was found alive, Captain Thomas Matthews praised her.

On arrival at home, Dexter burned the photo of of him in the hospital standing near Tucci that the Ice Truck Killer had left for him. As he watched it go up in flames, Dexter thought:

"What about me? Maybe I'll never be the human Harry wanted me to be, but I couldn't kill Tony Tucci. That's not me either. My new friend thought I wouldn't be able to resist the kill he left for me...but I did. I'm not the monster he wants me to be, so I'm neither man nor beast. I'm something new entirely. My own set of rules. I'm Dexter."
