Safe Sleep for Sweet Dreams: Mercy Helps Address Infant Mortality in Stark County

Posted by Cindy Hickey on Thu, Jun 25, 2015 - 10:13 AM in Community Outreach

         

Although our nation’s infant mortality rate has gone down in the last 10 years, Ohio’s has remained the same. Tragically, Stark County’s death rate for infants is not only higher than Ohio's, it also shows a disparity between white infants and African American infants. At Mercy, we are very concerned about this problem.

When Mercy Development Foundation needed a chair for its 2nd Century Campaign - a fundraising initiative dedicated to renovation and expansion of our emergency department (ED) - James King, MD, was an ideal choice.

Music to Their Ears: Green Intermediate Students Collect, Organize 1,000 CDs for Mercy Hospice

Posted by Cindy Hickey on Mon, Jun 1, 2015 - 8:04 AM in Volunteers

         

Sarah and Emily Kolesar have a passion for service, fostered in part by their Girl Scout troop's "Year of Service." So, when they learned Mercy Hospice needed someone to organize its small collection of music CDs, that was music to their ears - and inspiration for their minds. In Sarah's and Emily's capable young hands, the CD collection was destined to grow.
