Community grants to help address Merced’s health needs
Modesto Bee

Mercy Medical Center is working on awarding $115,000 in community grants to projects that try to improve the health of Merced residents.

Every three years, Dignity Health, the hospital’s parent company, conducts a health needs assessment in which it prioritizes a community’s needs.

The grant program awards funding to nonprofit organizations that partner together and develop proposals to respond to the priorities identified in the health assessment.
