And improve more lives.
Who We Are
Mercy Health Foundation St. Louis is an organization that supports Mercy Hospital St. Louis and Mercy Clinic East. The Foundation supports initiatives across our communities in creating treatment options to all who need it, regardless of their ability to pay. The Foundation also helps fund the acquisition of advanced medical technologies and life-saving equipment.
Mercy Health Foundation St. Louis is a nonprofit institution. We are dependent on the donations and support of generous corporations, foundations and caring individuals like you. Your gifts to Mercy Health Foundation St. Louis help enhance patient programs, fund life-saving equipment and capital projects and support charity care programs and services for those who need it most.
Thanks to your generous donations, Mercy Health Foundation St. Louis has helped bring new specialized forms of cancer care and increased access to dental care for underserved individuals. The Foundation has also generated tremendous growth in services for children with developmental disabilities, provided more support for families coping with mental health issues, purchased new advanced medical equipment and so much more.
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.
Patients in, and around St. Louis, should be able to access health care services conveniently and confidently. With your help, patients are able to see primary and specialty care providers without leaving their community.
Your gifts help treat the most challenging diseases while keeping patients close to home.
Cancer Care Navigation
Mercy believes that no one should battle cancer alone and seeks to transform the patient care model to meet the complex medical and life needs of cancer patients by introducing cancer care navigation. Navigators will help patients coordinate appointments, identify care needs, facilitate communication with clinical staff, streamline referrals, increase patient satisfaction and offer survivorship education.
Mercy Kids Therapy and Development Center
Mercy is building an advanced center large enough to offer all therapy – development and Autism spectrum services – under one roof. This space will offer innovative treatments and personalized care in addition to providing family support, community education programming, a comprehensive behavioral health component and the capacity to more than double the number of children, teens and families served.
Charity Care for Underserved
Mercy Hospital JFK Clinic offers medical, obstetrical, gynecological and pediatric services to approximately 6,000 uninsured or underinsured patients. Mercy seeks support to cover the costs of preventative dental care, eye care, durable medical equipment and additional charity care services.
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.
Need To Know
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.
