Mercy Health Foundation Jefferson in Festus, MO is a non-profit organization working to provide people in Jefferson County and its surrounding communities with today’s most advanced health care services.

Your generous donations help support projects that provide advanced technology and capital needs for Mercy Hospital Jefferson while administering compassionate care and exceptional health care services to the communities we serve. Your gift can be directed toward any of these three areas, all of which are in need of support:

  • Areas of Greatest Need (Catherine McAuley Fund) - In the past, funds have provided charity care for patients in need of financial support, educational programs for patients, medication assistance and much more. The Catherine McAuley Fund, named for the generosity of our founder, is an ongoing area of support for MercyWay campaigns.
  • Cancer Care / Oncology - Giving to Cancer Care / Oncology will improve treatment right here, in our community. Donations support screening and diagnostic procedures for cancer detection for uninsured and underinsured individuals, biopsies,  transportation and support services for cancer patients.
  • Cardiology - Donations support staff education and training in delivering quality care and increased safety for patients treated in the cardiac catheterization lab. Also, funding supports Cardiac Rehabilitation patients at Mercy Hospital Jefferson.
  • Chaplains’ Fund - Our Chaplains’ Fund is managed by the hospital’s Pastoral Advisory Committee and provides assistance to patients who cannot afford medical needs such as prescription drugs or medical equipment.
  • Co-worker Crisis Fund - Co-workers who are facing an immediate crisis and need guidance, counseling or financial assistance may apply for support. The Co-worker Crisis Fund is an ongoing area of support for MercyWay campaigns, and funds are allocated through a process developed by our Mission leaders.
  • Dialysis - Giving to the Dialysis Fund supports the inpatient dialysis program to provide equipment for patient comfort (recliners, warming blankets, etc.) as well as community outreach and education of kidney dialysis treatment and services.
  • Hospice - A Gift of Hope offers financial support that helps provide a meaningful experience for Hospice patients nearing the end of life. Your generosity helps Hospice volunteers, chaplains, nurses’ aides, social workers and physicians honor the dignity of each individual entrusted to our care.

If having local access to high-quality health care is important to you, would you please consider a tax-deductible donation to Mercy Health Foundation? In addition to monetary contributions, we welcome the assistance of volunteers to help us fulfill our mission.
