Patients and volunteers often do a double take because of two TCU nursing students who are regular volunteers at the clinic. Ellie and Emily Sullivan brighten the hallways and rooms of the clinic with their infectious smiles and compassionate hearts. The ministry of Mercy Clinic was introduced to them by their grandparents who had seen the clinic sign during a visit to church. Knowing their granddaughters were freshmen nursing majors and fluent in Spanish led to a quick connection. For Emily and Ellie, the ministry combines 3 of their passions: Spanish, medicine, and Jesus. Emily particularly appreciates the opportunity to pray with patients. Both enjoy the freedom to observe patient care and using their nursing skills; and the wonderful balance between treating the patient and teaching moments. Emily and Ellie have invited their fellow nursing students to volunteer as well. Rachel Farrow and Mallory Dean are TCU nursing
students who loves the cooperative spirit and the caring volunteers that also serve at Mercy Clinic.
2020 Vision: Looking to the Future
These needs exist for the purpose of serving our neighbors. 2020 Vision is our road map to meeting these needs better by the year 2020.
Central to 2020 Vision is expanding our capacity and services from two nights a week to five days a week. In order to achieve this goal, a new, state-of-the-art facility is required to meet anticipated increases in patient demand. Our new home will allow us to meet current and future needs for our 76110 patients as well as expand services to adjacent zip codes.
On May 1, friends, volunteers, and members of our board gather at the Hemphill property site to dedicate the new property. Volunteers, friends, and staff come out to the dedication of the new property.
More Than A Building
Our mission is to show the love and compassion of Jesus to our neighbors in Fort Worth. In addition to employing a full-time executive director, Mercy Clinic will also employ a full-time counselor-evangelist to minister to our patients. These positions are vital to ensure that our patients receive adequate and consistent physical, mental, social, and spiritual care.
Goals for 2020 Vision
- Retirement of the Hemphill Street Land Purchase Debt and Abatement/Removal of Existing Building
- Construct New Medical/Dental Clinic Building
- Ongoing Operational Support
- Endowments for Ongoing Maintenance and Operational Support
