This year Mercy Hospital St. Louis and Mercy Hospital South began an important collaboration, consolidating our efforts to bring one annual gala to the St. Louis Community. We were able to celebrate the 16th Annual “Oceana” Mercy Masquerade. At the Mercy Health Foundation’s Oceana Masquerade, guests experienced to three distinct ocean-themed destinations; Exotico Beach, The Living Sea and The Lost City! The evening culminated with dancing and tours of the new Saint Louis Aquarium.
The partnership allowed Mercy to expand their reach to 40,000 underserved patients. The event helped raise over $1 million. Donations and gifts allow Mercy Health Foundation to continue to meet the growing needs of families in the community by providing them with access to medical, dental, social and mental health services – regardless of their ability to pay.
