Legacy Fund

The Legacy Fund was established in celebration of our centennial year (1918-2018), to honor our foundresses, the Sisters of Mercy and build on the Legacy they created.  The Legacy Fund will help Mercy Health St. Rita’s address the community’s most pressing needs.  

While the most pressing needs have changed over the last 100 years, the Sisters mission of extending the healing ministry of Jesus to improve the health of the community remains. 

Throughout 2018 the funds raised for the Legacy fund will help address the opiate epidemic through prevention, education, treatment and community outreach.  One key component of this is the Opiate Withdrawal and Linkage program.  This program has been serving patients who have recently completed inpatient detox, with linkage to services that help them through various aspects of recovery.

“We’re seeing the results of this program.  People are recovering.”
