Who We Are

Our Foundation

Mercy Health Foundation St. Francis is a charity providing support to Mercy St. Francis Hospital. The Foundation has the distinct honor of garnering community support for health improvement projects, scholarships, life-saving equipment and the expansion of services and programs at Mercy St. Francis Hospital. Thanks to the support of the Foundation, Mercy St. Francis Hospital provides exceptional health care to the residents of Baxter, Douglas, Howell, Ozark and Shannon counties.

Mercy Health Foundation St. Francis 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 St. Francis 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

Patients in, and around, St. Francis should be able to access health care services conveniently and confidently. With your help, Mercy Health Foundation St. Francis benefits telemedicine programs that leverage technology to remove geographic barriers and allow rural patients to see primary and specialty care providers without leaving their community. 

Innovative Care
Mercy St. Francis Hospital is seeking support for some much-needed enhancements to our Radiology Department, including two specific pieces of equipment: a digital portable x-ray cart and a digital C-arm.

Access and Assistance
Mercy Health Foundation St. Francis strives to help the poor by investing in programs that serve our most vulnerable patients. This is demonstrated in the Foundation’s commitment to making the most advanced treatment options available to urban and rural patients alike. Your gifts help treat the most challenging diseases while keeping patients close to home. 

3D Mammography
A cancer diagnosis can be shocking, scary and devastating for anyone, but for patients living in rural areas, it can be even more worrisome when the answers they need are hours away.  Since 2012, Mercy St. Francis Hospital has offered digital mammography to patients in Mountain View and surrounding; however, recent technological progress has led to 3D mammography, the most advanced technology currently available.  3D mammography allows for more accurate detection and earlier diagnosis of breast cancer, providing physicians with the best information to guide plans for treatment – even when no other signs or symptoms are showing.  Your investment in 3D mammography will help patients in the Mountain view area receive quality care close to home, resulting in saved lives and improved quality of life for hundreds of families.
