About UsEl Capitan- Yosemite

The Mercy Medical Center Merced Foundation was established in 1984 to assist Mercy Medical Center Merced, a not-for-profit hospital, with the expanding need for health care services in our local communities. Since then, the Foundation has raised over $17 million for Mercy Medical Center.  These funds are used to support capital projects, purchase equipment for the medical center, expand patient programs and services, and provide additional staff training and education.
