Who We Are

Our Foundation

Mercy Health Foundation Springfield was founded with the mission of improving community healthcare, enhancing patient programs, providing life-saving equipment and raising money of capital enhancements for Mercy Hospital Springfield. The hospital provides care to more than 576,000 patients annually and offers comprehensive care with the region’s only pediatric cancer center within its dedicated Children’s Hospital, as well as the only Level 1 Emergency Trauma Center and Burn Center. The 947-bed hospital also provides Life Line medical helicopter services, a Cancer Center, Heart Institute and a nationally-certified Stroke Center.

Mercy Health Foundation Springfield’s charitable efforts in support of the hospital enhance the healthcare opportunities for the Springfield community, as well as throughout Southwest Missouri including Aurora, Branson, Cassville, Monett,  Mountain View and the entire Ozark region into Northwest Arkansas.

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

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.

Our Focus

Mercy Kids 
Catherine McAuley, Mercy’s founder, had a particular concern for the poor. More specifically, she worked to assist children in need.

Donors like you continue Catherine’s legacy by supporting Mercy Health Foundation Springfield’s campaign to build a Mercy Kids Children’s Hospital. The new facility will include an advanced pediatric emergency department, pediatric intensive care unit, inpatient center and a child-friendly test and treatment center.

Access and Assistance
Patients in and around Southwest Missouri should be able to access health care services conveniently and confidently. Funds raised by Mercy Health Foundation Springfield will support the construction of a 50,000 square foot, multi-specialty facility in Branson, MO. This will help to bring quality health care closer to home for thousands of patients and their families.

Mercy’s cardiologists and cardio vascular surgeons offer advanced treatment for the most challenging diseases while keeping patients close to home, but they can’t do it alone. Mercy Health Foundation Springfield is committed to supporting technology-driven programs and projects, education for co-workers in advanced and specialized fields, advanced art diagnostic equipment and cutting-edge treatment options at the new Mercy Heart Hospital.

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.
