Thank a Health Care Hero

Show your gratitude by supporting the nurses who care for you

Skilled hands and compassionate hearts care for you and your loved ones

Support the well-being and professional development of Mercy Health nurses. It's a gift that comes back to you through the care you receive.

Nurses answer a call to serve. They take care of you and your family during challenging times of illness or injury. Through donor generosity, we can serve and support them in return.

Donations provide special resources to help ensure the physical and emotional well-being of nurses and provide opportunities for nurses to grow and advance in their profession. Your gift can even be made in honor of a nurse or caregiver who made a difference in your life.

Excellence in Nursing

Nursing is a profession that can be both physically and emotionally taxing. Our nurses at Mercy Health are dedicated to caring for every patient with equal parts skilled medical care, comforting kindness and hospitality.

Donations to the Excellence in Nursing fund ensure resources are available to support nurses in their day-to-day work as well as long-range career growth in their profession. When nurses need to recharge to be their best for every patient, donations provide special comforts and support.

Contributions also benefit programming that helps our nursing staff achieve and maintain Magnet status, an exclusive achievement given to fewer than 10% of U.S. hospitals with nursing teams that demonstrate superior patient care in a number of measured benchmarks. Thanks in part to donor support, Mercy Health St. Elizabeth Boardman and St. Joseph Warren Hospitals are the only Magnet facilities in the Mahoning Valley.

Give Back

There's no better way to thank a nurse than to support them in their work


Donations for Mercy Health Foundation Mahoning Valley's scholarship fund invest in the nurses and medical professionals that will care for our community in the years ahead. Helping more students complete their education ensures high quality health care is always available to meet the Mahoning Valley's growing needs.

With ongoing donor support, the Foundation provides a number of scholarships for nursing students and other fields at many of the colleges and universities in northeast Ohio. Some of our scholarships are dedicated to Mercy Health associates or their children. Others are open to any student and for many fields of study. Every gift toward scholarships helps build a skilled, compassionate health care workforce.
