Our Commitment to Community
Mercy Health is dedicated to the anchor mission philosophy by committing financial resources to the communities we serve.
In 2019, Mercy Health joined the Healthcare Anchor Network, a coalition of 70+ healthcare systems, to reaffirm our mission to serve the poor, dying and underserved people in the most marginalized corners of society.
As part of this collaboration, we work with community partners to achieve healthy equity by supporting employment, business development and economic growth in underserved areas.
The anchor mission philosophy strategically allocates human and financial resources to three pillars.
First PillarInclusive Local Hiring: We represent the local communities we serve at all levels within the ministry.
Second PillarInclusive Local Purchasing:
We support local women and minority-owned businesses (WMOB) in our supply chain.
Third PillarPlace-Based Investing: We make direct institutional and project-based investments in the communities we serve.
