At Mercy, we believe that every person should have a healthcare home and primary care provider. Studies show that having one primary care provider makes patients more apt to get an annual well-check to watch for trends and changes in health. When a patient is sick, they have one place to go to get well where their health care records are kept.
“We are excited to present our health fair to the community and invite everyone to get to know Mercy Community Healthcare on June 11. If you are without a primary care provider, this is a great way to get find a home. If you need help with the Health Insurance Marketplace, we can help you navigate the portal. We will also have medical staff members on site to answer questions, screen, and test for a variety of conditions. At Mercy, we are defined by our ability to provide exceptional care in an integrated way – body, mind, spirit. Come find out more!” said Beth Ann Wilmore, Director of Nursing.
“Not all who struggle for access to proper healthcare are poor. Many who are employed full-time are underinsured or their conditions are not covered. Access to mental healthcare is especially challenging. St. Philip Church partners with Mercy Community Healthcare because together we can do far more than the Church could ever do alone,” said Rev. Father Edward Steiner, D.Min., Pastor, St. Philip the Apostle Church.
