Who We Are

Our Foundation

Mercy Health Foundation Northwest Arkansas provides philanthropic support for Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas, serving the communities of Rogers, Benton, Carroll, Madison and Washington counties in Arkansas and McDonald and Barry Counties in Missouri. Through charitable support, we partner together with the community to provide increased access to care at our hospitals and clinics across the region.

The health care needs of our community will always outpace our resources. Your support will help ensure that the work of Mercy continues to touch the lives of families, friends and neighbors in our community.  The simplest health care initiatives begin by caring for our neighbors.  

Mercy Health Foundation Northwest Arkansas is a nonprofit organization. We are dependent on the donations and support of generous foundations, corporations and caring individuals like you. Your gifts to Mercy Health Foundation Northwest Arkansas help enhance patient programs, fund life-saving equipment and capital projects, and support charity care programs and services for those who need it most. 

When you donate to Mercy Health Foundation, you support critical projects in our community. That’s right. Every dollar you give advances health care right here at home.

Our Focus

Access and Assistance
Mercy Health Foundation Northwest Arkansas continues its crusade to deliver the highest quality of care possible, while keeping patients close to home. Campaign donors are helping increase the capacity of the hospital as well as open seven new clinics to support the growing health care needs of our community.

Women’s and Children’s Services
Catherine McAuley, Mercy’s founder, had a particular concern for the poor. More specifically, she worked to assist women and children in need. Mercy Health Foundation Northwest Arkansas continues Catherine’s legacy by providing program and equipment needs for the hospital’s labor and delivery unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and breast health services.
