Created in 2012, Mercy Health Foundation Oklahoma City is the successor organization to the Mercy Health Center Foundation, which was incorporated on May 1, 2000. The Foundation's purpose is to support Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City and to raise funds for Mercy within the Oklahoma City metropolitan region. Through the Foundation's philanthropic support, Mercy is able to provide the highest quality health care to residents living in Oklahoma City and throughout the state.
2015, Mercy Health Foundation Oklahoma City helped fund over $1 million in
hospital projects including those which focus on charity care, enhanced medical
services, health education programs, lifesaving medical equipment, and capital
improvements. Thanks to support from individuals, organizations, and
corporations, the Foundation also raised over $12 million to date for the
construction of the Coletta Building, Mercy’s new state-of-the-art cancer center in
Oklahoma City. However, the building construction is only the first step. Mercy
is dedicated to making the lives of cancer patients and their families the best
they can be. To make this a reality, Mercy
Health Foundation is working diligently to strengthen and expand innovative cancer
programs that address not only the patient’s physical needs, but also their
emotional and spiritual needs. Programs focusing on complementary and holistic therapies,
nutrition and wellness, patient navigation, and chemotherapy support are some
of the funding priorities for the Foundation in 2016.
Mercy Health Foundation Oklahoma City has identified the following needs in order to continue providing the residents of Oklahoma City with the highest quality health care available:
Mercy is a unique health care facility in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area in that we have remained true to our roots. Founded by the Sisters of Mercy, the purpose of the organization has remained consistent with the original ideals of our founders. We provide compassionate care in our everyday service delivery. We find that people believe in our mission and in the vision of the Sisters of Mercy. The foundation they built is incredibly important to all of Mercy's co-workers. We provide peace and comfort to those who choose Mercy as their health care provider. We have a legacy to build upon - and that is to provide the best health care that we can. Mercy excels in stroke, hospice, and oncology care, and delivers over 3,000 babies per year. Our Emergency Room sees over 56,000 patients per year. We have clinics located throughout the Oklahoma City metropolitan area and our patients can avail themselves with the best physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners in the city. We use technology to serve our patients better through a connected continuum of care. Simply put, Mercy is focused on care and service for the people who reside and work in our community. The Foundation supports Mercy in its mission.
Not only do we strive to carry on Mercy's mission of providing compassionate care and exceptional service to all of our patients, but Mercy has a unique focus of providing care to the poor and underserved within our community. The Foundation assists the hospital in carrying out this special focus. The delivery of quality health care in the United States has become increasingly difficult, burdened by an overwhelmed system of health care providers, insurance companies, government regulations, and consumers—many who cannot afford the high cost of health care. The Mercy Health Foundation is especially sensitive to these realities and supports the hospital in its community outreach efforts and its relentless commitment to assist the poor and underserved in accessing quality health care services in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area.
The service area of Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City is comprised of six counties (Oklahoma, Canadian, Cleveland, Kingfisher, Lincoln, and Logan) with a population of 1.4 million. Although the primary service area is the Oklahoma City metropolitan area, it is important to note that the hospital accepts patients from across the state.
A primary challenge for the Foundation is expanding its funding base to support the Oklahoma City hospital, the network of clinics located in the metropolitan area, and the slew of new programs which come along with the recent opening of the Coletta Building, Mercy’s breast health and cancer center. Mercy Health Foundation is working diligently to secure the philanthropic support necessary for these programs to thrive.
