Who We Are

Our Foundation

Mercy Health Foundation Ardmore provides philanthropic support for Mercy Hospital Ardmore. The Foundation’s goal is to help make an impact in our community by working with the hospital to improve quality of life and make health care accessible for all.  Donations to the Foundation help the hospital provide exceptional health care to the residents of Ardmore, OK and the counties of Carter, Jefferson, Johnston, Love, Marshall and Murray. Mercy also has a critical access hospital in Healdton, OK.

Mercy Health Foundation Ardmore 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 Ardmore 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, 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 Ardmore should be able to access health care services conveniently and confidently. Mercy Health Foundation Ardmore benefits telemedicine programs that leverage technology to remove geographic barriers and allow rural patients to see specialists without leaving their community. Other priorities include behavioral health and supporting patients in crisis with needs beyond standard medical.

Innovative Care
Through our 3D imaging project, patients at Mercy Ardmore are receiving the most advanced technologies to provide quick and accurate care. Through improvements in diagnostic ultrasound, mammography, nuclear medicine and radiation therapy, our patients do not have to travel elsewhere to receive the most advanced and innovative care.

Women’s and Children’s Services
Catherine McAuley, Mercy’s founder, had a particular concern for the poor. Even more specifically, she worked to assist women and children in need. Mercy Health Foundation Ardmore continues Catherine’s legacy by supplementing program and equipment needs for Ardmore’s labor and delivery unit, which ensures quality care for our community’s littlest and most fragile patients.
