Community Health

Continuing the legacy of Mercy’s Founding Sisters to serve those in need, Mercy Hospital  is involved in a broad range of community service programs to improve the health of the people we serve on Long Island, with special attention to the medically indigent.

Mercy conducts various free screenings for prostate, skin, breast and colorectal cancers. And Mercy participates in various community health fairs sponsored by towns, recreation centers, churches, etc., and provides health education speakers for numerous senior centers, schools, libraries and other community organizations.

Mercy also sponsors a wide range of support groups, including programs for mental health and substance abuse, and bereavement, and provides information about groups for those living with cancer.

Mercy also participates in Rotacare, an initiative of the local Rotary International Clubs, in which Mercy provides back-up hospital care for the un- and under-insured who are treated at Rotacare’s Health Care Program in Uniondale.

A more detailed overview of Mercy's community programs are contained in the below or by contacting Liz Schwind, community relations, at: 516-705-3133.
