Who We Are

Our Foundation

Mercy Health Foundation Washington is a charitable organization providing philanthropic support to Mercy Hospital Washington. The Foundation also helps  provide exceptional health care to the residents of Washington, MO and its neighboring counties of Gasconade, Warren and St Louis County. As the only Level III Trauma Center in between St. Louis and Jefferson City, the hospital offers an experienced medical staff that is specially trained in trauma care. 

Mercy Health Foundation Washington 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 cardiology services at Mercy Hospital Washington. Additional areas impacted include pediatrics, behavioral health care, obstetric services and charitable dental services. 

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

Like the Sisters of Mercy before us, we are blazing a new trail to find lifelong cures through modern thinking and innovation.

Mercy’s physicians are treating the most challenging cardiovascular disorders while keeping patients close to home, but they can’t do it alone. Mercy Health Foundation Washington is in an ongoing campaign to enhance the facilities and equipment used by cardiac patients. The $2.1 million campaign will help fund technology-driven programs and projects and advanced diagnostic equipment.

Your gifts help treat the most challenging diseases while keeping patients close to home.

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.
