Mercy Children’s Clinic was created out of the belief that local businesses, churches, and individuals – and not solely the government – should help shoulder the burden for providing care for these children. Mercy has mental health and social services, enabling Mercy to provide even more comprehensive, integrated care. The Chronic Care Medical Home was established to ensure the proper management of the care-plans of our patients inside and outside of Mercy. Hundreds of Mercy’s patients must see anywhere from two to 12 (or more) specialists in order to receive the care they need. Through the Chronic Care Medical Home, Mercy is able to serve as the “general contractor” for each of these patients.
How we help: There is a line item in our budget each year to support Mercy Community Healthcare. We encourage participation in their fundraiser, the Franklin Classic 5K and 10K held each year on Labor Day.
