Employees Lend a Hand

Empowering Employees to Make a Difference in the Community

Dignity Health employees work in an environment in which compassion and concern for those in need are part of everyday values.

Mercy Foundation offers employees yet another way to show their compassion through the Employees Lend a Hand (ELAH) program. ELAH empowers employees to make a difference in the lives of countless people in our community who need health care, education, housing or other support services to survive. Donations fund critical Dignity Health programs and services that otherwise would not be available to those in need.
