Helping others is the Mercy way. For the last two years, co-workers at Mercy St. Francis Hospital have generously donated to the annual MercyWay campaign; now they’re putting those funds to good use.
On Monday, Sept. 15, co-workers presented a $5,000 check to the Good Samaritan Care Clinic. Over the last decade, volunteers at that clinic have provided much-needed medical and dental services to the uninsured.
“These funds will provide medical and dental services to those who simply can’t afford them,” said Sheri Noble, clinic administrator; she’s one of three part-time staff members. “We will be able to buy dental supplies and equipment, as well as pharmaceuticals.”
The Good Samaritan Care Clinic is funded by the Mercy Health Foundation, Missouri Foundation for Health, and several churches and community members. It launched in February 2004; its first facility was a home donated by Mercy St. Francis Hospital. After providing services to hundreds of patients, the clinic moved to its current location at 510 W. US Highway 60 in Mountain View, Mo. Call 417-934-6500 for more information.
