Community Benefit

At Mercy Health, we are truly part of the communities we serve. We live and work here, and our Mission calls us to take responsibility for the health of the people around us. 

Investing back into our communities is more than a job. It’s a way of life. It’s part of who we are. It’s what we were meant to do.

We provide an essential safety net for people who need our help. Those who come to us receive compassionate and quality care, regardless of their ability to pay. We will help people who don’t have insurance or who need additional assistance to meet their healthcare expenses. 

Nearly $1 million each day
In 2015, Mercy Health invested $321 million in community benefit unto the communities where we provide care, most of it targeted to people who are poor and underserved.

Community Health Needs Assessment
Mercy Health devotes significant time and attention to researching and planning ways to address each community’s most urgent needs. One element of this process is a periodic, comprehensive Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) for each Mercy Health facility. Through our focused assessments, Mercy Health is identifying the greatest health needs in each of our communities, enabling our team to direct resources toward the outreach, prevention, education and wellness opportunities that can make the greatest impact.
