Who We Are

Our Foundation

Mercy Health Foundation South is a charitable organization providing philanthropic support to Mercy Hospital South (formerly St. Anthony’s). Mercy Hospital South is designated a Level II Trauma Center, serving families from South St. Louis County and surrounding communities. Every day, Mercy caregivers strive to make a difference in the lives of those entrusted to our care.  Through Mercy Health Foundation South, donors help ensure the highest quality of care in our community, helping bring solace, peace and healing, as well as the latest medical discoveries and technologies.

Mercy Health Foundation South is a nonprofit organization. We are dependent on the donations and support of generous foundations, corporations and caring individuals like you.

Thanks to your generous donations, the Foundation played a vital role in the recent expansion of cancer care services with the groundbreaking for the new David M. Sindelar Cancer Center. Other areas impacted include: stroke and heart care, pediatrics, behavioral health care and hospice programs. 

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.
