Hospice of Mercy & Mercy Hospice House support the end-of-life journey empowering patients to live their final days with dignity and respect. The Mercy Health Foundation works to raise the support necessary to cover spiritual care, bereavement, charity care and other expenses not reimbursed by Medicare or insurance.
Donations to Hospice of Mercy support spiritual care, bereavement services and volunteer coordination, which are not reimbursed by Medicare or insurance. Donations to Hospice House support charity care and unforeseen capital or operational needs.
The Mercy Project is designed to financially assist uninsured patients who do not have the ability to meet their financial obligations for services rendered at Mercy. It is available to all established La Plata, Archuleta and San Juan Colorado county residents who have received services at Mercy Regional Medical Center. 100% of funds raised stay local for Mercy patients and families.
Mercy Regional Medical Center continues to experience an increase in providing charity care. As a response to the growing number of uninsured and staggering unreimbursed charity losses, the foundation started the Mercy Project in 2002 and then expanded services to prescription drugs, transportation, lodging and other exceptions.
This program allows patients who “fall through the cracks” to apply for assistance through our financial counselors. Patients maintain their dignity as they become responsible for a small portion of their bill and make small payments for their portion.
