Community Benefit

As a not-for-profit, regional hospital, we maintain a constant focus on helping the people in our community. In addition to providing top-quality medical care, we search for every way possible to give back to area citizens. To learn more, click the links below. 

Charity Care
In 2011, Mercy Regional Health Center provided more than $3 million in charity care. This number includes medical care for the uninsured and under-insured. 

Support Groups
For local citizens who are facing a physical or emotional crisis, or both, there are several support groups available through Mercy Regional Health Center.


Education
Mercy Regional offers: 

Youth and Health Care
As we strive to give our community the newest, most effective technologies and treatments, we must also remember that the future of local, regional and national health care depends on today’s youth. 

Unless children and teens begin to consider healthcare careers now, the nation will be facing a serious shortage of healthcare workers in the not-so-distant future. It is projected that by 2020, the U.S. will be short over a million nurses and thousands of other healthcare professionals.
 

Mercy Regional has chosen to confront those numbers head on.  

  • Mercy offers "Got Guts? Consider a Career in Healthcare," a program that encourages youth ages 13-18 to consider a career in Healthcare.
  • Our annual Discover Health Careers Extravaganza brings area middle-schoolers to the hospital to learn about health care and related careers.
  • We offer several pre-professional opportunities to teens and college students interested in healthcare careers.
