Giving Back to Our Community
Community Benefit has been a part of Mercy Medical Center's heritage for more than 100 years, when the hospital was founded by the Sisters of Mercy to take care of the sick and the poor. It is a way for our employees to reach beyond the walls of the hospital, making a difference in the community during work hours.
Mercy continually strives to expand the visibility and importance of community benefit activities, firmly believing that each person has the responsibility to reach out and touch the lives of others. From free health screenings to helping out at a non-profit organization, our employees' contributions are an expression of The Mercy Touch.®
AED Donation Program
The Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) donation program at Mercy is designed to equip local non-profits demonstrating financial need with the life-saving devices. The non-profits must also exhibit a need for AED coverage for their facility and participate in an application process. Download the application. Completed applications need to be returned by September 30, 2016.
