Kenmore Mercy Hospital Foundation

Supporting Kenmore Mercy Hospital Since 1980

Our Mission

The mission of Kenmore Mercy Foundation is to raise charitable contributions to provide key financial support to Kenmore Mercy Hospital for educational programs, patient services, and capital projects.


Message from the Foundation President:

On behalf of the Foundation Board of Trustees and Staff, I would like to thank you for your continued support of Kenmore Mercy Hospital. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some of the successes you made possible at Kenmore Mercy Hospital so far in 2011.

Our Annual Fund is well on its way to surpassing its budgeted goals. The Annual Fund Campaign, which includes donations from our volunteer Board of Trustees, the business community, hospital employees, patients, physicians, parishes and our Kenmore Mercy Foundation friends, to date has raised a total of $87,126.

The Golf & Wine Event, held in June, was a great success raising $155,616 and surpassed its goal by over $5,000. Event Chair, Robert Beck, the committee and volunteers did a fantastic job of growing the event and increasing community support. Our annual Tribute to Angels event will be held in November and we are pleased to announce that the honorees of the Sister Mary Mechtilde Memorial Award are Ralph Vanner Sr. and George Carncross. Additionally, the Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to the Most Reverend Edward U. Kmiec. This group of honorees has excited the community and their support, giving us quite a head start on the way to meeting our goal of $138,000.

We are honored to provide key financial support to Kenmore Mercy Hospital through our Grants to Hospital Program. This year, our program has included the funding of 58 Staff Education Grants totaling $25,538 for nurses, technicians and hospital staff. The Foundation has also funded Mini Grants totaling $28,152 for 15 hospital departments to help serve our patients and their families.

The Foundation is proudly committed to giving $50,000 to Kenmore Mercy Hospital for Capital Equipment Grants which will include the purchase of: Bladder Scanner [3 East],  Allen Medical Yellow Fin Stirrups [OR], 2 Blood Pressure Modules [MRU], CO2 Phillips Monitor [ICU], Telemetry Transmitter [3 East], Steam Table [Dietary] and a Biphasic Defibulator [Nursing Administration].                              

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Foundation staff, thank you for your generous support of Kenmore Mercy Foundation and Kenmore Mercy Hospital.

The redevelopment of Kenmore Mercy Hospital's Emergency Department was in response to changing patient demands, to accomodate new technology and reduce wait times and overcrowding. The goals of redevelopment include providing more efficient and effective emergency care services which will meet the current and future needs of our community.

The Emergency Department groundbreaking will take place March 29 at 2:30 p.m. Construction is anticipated to take 12 - 15 months to complete and the new ED will open in mid to late 2012.
