Charitable giving is a personal choice. Some people give to express appreciation for a good experience. Others wish to honor someone or make a gift in memory of someone who has profoundly impacted their lives. Still others wish to make an investment in a long-standing institution or in today’s students and what they will someday accomplish in medicine. Whatever your reason for giving, we hope you will reflect on your relationship with Mercy Hospital & Medical Center and make us a philanthropic priority. Your gifts will bring lasting value and will make a tangible difference to the future of Mercy.
