The Dental Van provides cleaning and preventative dental care for children who may not otherwise receive it. Originally purchased through donations to Mercy Health Foundation Greater Lima, this ongoing partnership between St. Rita's Health Partners and Health Partners of West Central Ohio aims to improve the lives of our friends and neighbors in the community. “Helping so many children who can't get help….That is what we are all called to do,” said Lynne Adams, who coordinates the Dental Van program.
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.”
