The Mercy Community’s Mission is not contained by the physical borders of our West Hartford campus. We are committed to promoting wellness and enhancing the quality of life for all people, especially those who are sick, poor and underserved.
Our community is closely interconnected with the surrounding community, and we have a long and rich history of community and global outreach through activities like our Clinical Pastoral Education Program – a partnership with Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford – and our Global Outreach Program.
Clinical Pastoral Education Program
Global Outreach Program
Through the Global Outreach Program, the Mercy Community seeks to share our medical, clinical and administrative skills with those who are in need around the world. This outreach program translates caring into commitment and puts our faith to work abroad. By partnering with in-country colleagues, we help support health community development and provide health services to the economically poor.
The Global Outreach Program is provided in sponsored facilities in Guatemala, Haiti, Peru, Brazil and Jamaica. In recent years, the Mercy Community has sent nursing personnel, a dietician and pastoral counselors to provide assistance in these impoverished communities.
