Welcome to Mercy Health Foundation! Since 1984, we have worked to improve the quality of life in northwest Arkansas through projects that benefit health care and education in our community.
As we look back, 20 years ago, the seeds of a long-term strategy were planned. The 50-year-old St. Mary’s facility could not serve the growing and changing needs of the region. With community support, we developed a new $140 million medical campus. We had a foundation to build on!
In 2016, we embarked on a multi-year expansion to produce exponential, systemic change. Our theme for this effort – Opening Doors: Our Commitment Continues – is not only descriptive but also hopeful of what we believe we can accomplish, together with the community.
Currently, health remains a vital element of community infrastructure. Over the next 10 years, Mercy will address three main pillars: (1) Access to and Quality of Healthcare, (2) Economic Development, and (3) Quality of Life with emphasis on the poor and disenfranchised.
The most effective response is three-fold, involving facilities and people:
