Mercy Hospitals East Communities operates two hospitals that are located in Creve Coeur (St. Louis metropolitan area) and Washington, MO.

Mercy Hospitals East Communities ("MHEC") provides quality medical health care regardless of race, creed, sex, national origin, handicap, age or ability to pay. In active pursuit of this mission, MHEC provided services in fiscal year 2019 to 50,505 inpatients, 129,043 emergency room visits, 1,411,867 outpatient visits, 9,542 Births, and 451,281 clinic visits.MHEC is a Catholic health care corporation that, pursuant to the organizational core belief that health care services are a vital and integral part of the Church's healing mission, engages in a ministry which provides general acute care, ambulatory, long-term and home care health services to individuals and families in its service communities. Consistent with the organization's commitment to social accountability and the provision of community benefit, MHEC offers other services and programs which further health promotion, maintenance and care. MHEC's services include two clinics which were established specifically for individuals who are uninsured or underinsured and do not have a means to pay for healthcare services. These clinics provide a significant focus on prenatal care. Many clinic patients were also treated, on a charitable basis, as inpatients. In response to the increased needs of the underinsured in the St. Louis area, these clinics have continually expanded, offering new services to more patients. The institution continues to focus on the provision of primary health services and education to the community, regardless of their means to pay for these services. The organization also has a continuing commitment to health research and to health education at all levels.Although reimbursement for services rendered is critical to the continued ability to provide healthcare services to all patients, MHEC recognizes that not all individuals possess the ability to purchase essential medical services and, further, that part of our mission is to provide healthcare services and healthcare education to the communities in which our facilities are located. In keeping with MHEC's commitment to serve all members of the communities it serves, MHEC provides (i) free care and/or subsidized care; (ii) care to persons covered by governmental programs at below cost; (iii) health activities and programs to support the community; (iv) health education programs; and, (v) a variety of broad community support activities. Among the community support activities offered by MHEC are the following: Community Education Programs Community Referral Coordinator provided in Emergency Department to connect low income/uninsured patients with a medical home Financial assistance provided with medications Indigent Care Clinics Pre-Natal and Well Baby Care for the Indigent Health Fairs and Screenings Immunizations Smoking Cessation Programs Health Professions Education Programs Financial Counseling and Discharge Counseling Services for all Patients Social Workers & Community Health Workers provide free screening and assistance for social determinant of health issues (no insurance, housing, food, transportation, etc.)MHEC provides care to patients who lack financial resources and are deemed to be medically indigent. As defined by the institution's charity policy, MHEC does not pursue collection of amounts determined to qualify for charity care. In addition, MHEC provides services to other patients under the Medicare Program and various state Medicaid programs. Such programs pay providers amounts that are substantially less than billed charges, and frequently less than the cost, of the services provided to the recipients. Care is provided to those with limited or no ability to pay. The cost, net of any payment received (net cost), to MHEC of providing care to persons qualifying for Charity/ Medicaid, and to elderly and disabled patients under the Medicare program totaled $69,654,516 for the year ended 6/30/19. These amounts do not include the cost of health activities and programs to support the community, health education programs and other community support activities. The services provided by MHEC, as well as the amount of charity care provided, demonstrate the ongoing commitment of the organization to serve in a leadership role as an advocate for responsive healthcare services for the community, with a deep commitment and sensitivity to meeting the needs of the poor.Each activity for which income is reported in column (B) of Part VIII is undertaken in furtherance of the organization's healthcare and community benefit mission described above.
