Who We Are

Our Foundation

Mercy Health Foundation Ada provides charitable support to Mercy Hospital Ada supporting the hospital’s commitment of providing exceptional health care to the residents of Ada, Oklahoma and the counties of Coal, Garvin, Johnston, Hughes, McClain, Murray, Pontotoc, Pottawatomie and Seminole. Mercy Health Foundation also supports a critical access hospital in Tishomingo, OK.

Mercy Health Foundation Ada 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 Ada help enhance patient programs, fund life-saving equipment and capital projects and provide charity care programs and services for those who need it most. 

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

Our Focus

Access and Assistance
Patients in and around Ada should be able to access health care services conveniently and confidently. Mercy Health Foundation Ada benefits telemedicine programs that leverage technology to remove geographic barriers and bring primary and specialty care to patients in rural communities. The Foundation supports programs such as the Community Paramedic Program that help close gaps in care for rural residents.

Innovative Care
Like the Sisters of Mercy before us, we are blazing a new trail to find lifelong cures through modern thinking and innovation.

Mercy Cancer Center – Ada is the only one of its kind within 60 miles. Mercy’s oncologists offer advanced treatment for the most challenging diseases while keeping patients close to home, but they can’t do it alone. Donations to Mercy Health Foundation Ada help provide technology-driven programs and projects, education for co-workers in advanced and specialized fields, advanced diagnostic equipment and cutting-edge treatment options.

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 Ada continues Catherine’s legacy by providing program and equipment needs for the hospital’s labor and delivery unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, breast health services, as well as funding a youth diabetes initiative.

Ada Golf Classic

Mercy Health Foundation Ada’s Annual Golf Classic is an opportunity to support our community’s tiniest patients. Your sponsorship or donation will help provide technology improvements and renovations of the Birthplace and NICU Nursery at Mercy Hospital Ada.

Join us for this four-person scramble event on Monday, August 9, 2021 at the beautiful Oak Hills Country Club that attracts golfers from all over the state of Oklahoma.
