Who We Are

Our Foundation

Mercy Health Foundation Jefferson is a charitable organization supporting Mercy Hospital Jefferson and Mercy Clinic South. The Foundation supports programs and services to help those who are unable to afford the care they need, as well as helping advance technologies and purchasing life-saving equipment. Mercy Health Foundation Jefferson also helps in the launch and expansion of much-needed programs in our community such as our behavioral health intensive outpatient program. 

Mercy Health Foundation Jefferson is a nonprofit organization. We are dependent on the donations and support of generous foundations, corporations and caring individuals like you. Thanks to your generours donations, the Foundation played a vital role in the recent expansion of both adolescent and adult behavioral health services.  Your support has also had significant impacts on the child birth center, community education and charity care, as well as support for the Nurse Navigation program.

When you invest in 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

Cancer Care
Mercy Hospital Jefferson’s cancer center offers the latest advancements in cancer treatment for residents of Jefferson County, MO. Our Cancer Care fund enhances the services offered to Mercy’s cancer patients and their families, and helps support the screening and diagnostic procedures of uninsured and underinsured patients.

Behavioral Health Services
Support to help adults and adolescents struggling with mental, behavioral or substance-abuse problems receive the care the need. A single day of Intensive Outpatient treatment can cost up to $275 for those who are under-insured or uninsured. Medication costs also present difficulties for many patients and families.

Women’s and Children’s Services
With your support we can help ensure that every mother and child have the best possible beginning. Giving to the Mother and Child Fund will help families purchase necessary items they need to care for their baby, including car seats, beds, meal vouchers and gas cards. Donations also help purchase new essential equipment in Labor and Delivery, such as bassinets and fetal heart monitors. 

Striving to continue the legacy of Catherine McAuley, Women with a Mission giving society combines resources, vision and passion for helping others to support and improve health care in our communities.
