Here’s what’s happening in and around Mercy Health Center!

Mercy’s Capital Campaign secures over $1 Million in Pledged Funds

Categories: New Releases

Since its beginning, Mercy Health Center has moved to four different locations due to lack of space and the continuous expansion of services. Mercy is one of the only health centers in Clarke County that provides continuity, acute and specialty care for the uninsured from Clarke, Barrow, Madison, Oglethorpe, Oconee and Jackson counties. In 2015, Mercy served approximately 1,900 patients and provided 10,479 visits.  Mercy is currently located at 700 Oglethorpe Ave., and operates out of an 11,000 sq ft. facility in which volunteers and staff provide medical, dental, pharmacy, and counseling services.  Mercy Health Center is seeking funds to make the facility its permanent home. As of March, Mercy’s capital campaign has secured over $1 million dollars in pledged funds! As the campaign continues, the organization is looking to garner continued support from the community by seeking gifts from foundations, corporations, churches and individuals.
