Ensure the best specialized care for women of all ages

Women have unique health care needs

Your giving supports a range of specialized services for every stage of a woman's life

An illness or medical condition can affect women differently than men. And women have their own health needs that require special screenings or medical care, like mammograms and prenatal care. Support from our donors helps Mercy Health provide a comprehensive lineup of services for women in Lorain County.

Donations make a difference in providing medical equipment, birthing center enhancements, 3D mammography technology and many other investments that ensure the best health care for women close to home.

Mobile Mammography

We need your help to make life-saving breast cancer screenings accessible for all women across northeast Ohio! The Mercy Health Foundation is raising $1.5 million to purchase and equip a 40-foot coach that will provide mobile mammography services for women, right in their own community or at their place of work.

Busy women, those without medical insurance or who lack transportation too often skip this important annual screening. Mammograms are the first line of defense for detecting breast cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages.

Donate today to make Mobile Mammography available as soon as possible for women in and around Lorain.

Women's Health Center

When you support the Women's Health Center, you make specialized care available for women in one convenient location. Donations to Mercy Health Foundation Lorain helped purchase the latest life-saving 3D mammography technology that saves lives by detecting cancer in its earliest stages. And for women without insurance or the ability to pay, donations to the Women's Health Center ensure those with a financial need get the important annual breast cancer screenings they couldn't otherwise afford.
