Home > About Us > Community Benefit
Community benefit has been a part of Mercy'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.®
As a locally owned and operated hospital since 1900, Mercy is committed to the health and well-being of the communities we serve. Mercy recognizes the significant downstream effect of community conditions on an individual’s health. To advance health equity, Mercy wants to support and partner with those organizations that are engaging in strategies to address the root causes of poor health. This year’s funding is available to local nonprofits whose proposed initiative(s) focus on one or more of these areas: access to behavioral health services, food insecurity, or safe and affordable housing. Applications are due March 28, 2022.
