Mercy was founded in gratitude.
When a young Irish woman named Catherine McAuley received an unexpected inheritance, she gave thanks to God and her benefactor. Catherine used those funds to open the first house of Mercy, serving impoverished women and children in Dublin. Catherine founded the Sisters of Mercy, a new kind of religious community – one that lived outside cloistered walls. The sisters were known as the “walking Sisters” because of their willingness to go out and serve the community.
Serving the health care needs of Lincoln and surrounding counties for over 60 years, Mercy Hospital Lincoln of Troy, MO, improves the quality of life in the communities it serves.
Catherine’s legacy lives on through the generous gifts of donors like you. Gifts to Mercy Health Foundation Lincoln support critical projects in this community. That’s right. Every dollar you give advances health care right here at home.
Mercy patients and their families often want to say “thanks” in some special way for the exceptional care they received. Our Grateful Families program is one way to express gratitude while helping share the gift of healing with others. Learn more.
