Inspiring Philanthropy. Changing Lives.

Mercy Foundation presents the 2015-2016 honor roll of donors | 10

President’s message As you read through this edition of Horizons, I hope you are filled with a sense of comforting familiarity, as the stories you will read all have a wonderfully similar theme that never gets old. Unlike daily newspapers and most other periodicals that tend to highlight the negative aspects of our world, every Horizons issue is filled with uplifting stories featuring “heroes” committed to bettering the lives of others in our community. They lift our spirits and inspire us.

Katie Wells, with Sister Mary Michael Murphy, RSM, demonstrate how telehealth technology is used to assist retired Sisters living at the Lady of Lourdes Life Center in Auburn when medical attention or a doctor’s visit is required.

Telemedicine “Robot” Provides Reassurance and Comfort to Retired Sisters of Mercy Being ill or injured and needing to see a doctor for evaluation is challenging for most, and even more so as we age. For the retired Sisters of Mercy living at the Lady of Lourdes Life Center in Auburn, it is no different. Currently, fourteen retired Sisters live in the Life Center’s skilled nursing facility and an additional fourteen reside in the private residence upstairs. “Because of the age group of the Sisters, certain minor illnesses can become quite serious quite quickly if left untreated,” says Teresa Tuttle, RN, Nurse Manager for the Sisters’ skilled nursing residence. “It is hard for the Sisters here to have to go to the emergency room in the middle of the night or on the weekend,” says Tuttle, “and when they are not feeling well, that situation can be upsetting.” Thanks to the generosity of Mercy Foundation donors, in October of last year, the Foundation utilized funding designated for the Sisters of Mercy to gift a telehealth robot. Dignity Health Telemedicine Network built the unit specifically for the Sisters in Auburn, using an InTouch Viewpoint telehealth robotic system. InTouch donated the software for the system which enables physician, Julie Wei Shatzel, DO, to provide care remotely, any time of day. Through the robot, Dr. Wei Shatzel works with onsite caregivers at the Life Center to assess and diagnose the Sisters any time of day, preventing them from having to wait for an in-person visit or needing to visit their local Continued on page 3

Each story of inspiration could not be told were it not for the numerous “silent” heroes, otherwise known as our generous Mercy Foundation donors. For over 60 years, you have generously and most often quietly, supported Mercy Foundation and the Sisters of Mercy Ministries. Please know how much Mercy Foundation and the Sisters of Mercy appreciate your thoughtful generosity and on-going support. By giving through Mercy Foundation to the ministry of your choice, you are changing lives in our community by providing healthcare, education, housing and care for the poor and elderly. As we say good-bye to summer and head towards fall, I wish you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday season. Thank you for being a hero! Sincerely,

President and CEO

Partners in Philanthropy


2016 Distinguished Service Awardees

To celebrate the end of the fiscal year, Mercy Foundation hosted its Annual Leadership Luncheon—an event held to recognize and thank members of the Board of Trustees and volunteer and ministry leaders for their continued partnership and support. One of the many highlights of this event is to honor board members who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, commitment and contribution to Mercy Foundation that has resulted in enduring value to the works of the Sisters of Mercy and Dignity Health. This year, two trustees were nominated by their peers for their outstanding dedication and service to Mercy Foundation, each receiving the prestigious Distinguished Service Award: Mark Read, who truly lives the values of the Sisters of Mercy and is a steadfast supporter of their mission. Mark represents the third generation of Reads to serve on the Mercy Foundation Board and has served continuously since 1994. During this time, Mark has chaired, and served on, a variety of board committees and has given generously of his time and resources. He also recently served as chair of the Board of Trustees for two consecutive terms. Alan Shatzel, DO, has been a board member, officer and committed supporter of Mercy Foundation since 2010. Dr. Shatzel and his family have given generously over the years and he remains one of the greatest supporters of the Sisters of Mercy ministries. In addition, Dr. Shatzel is an incredible advocate for Mercy Foundation, helping to engage other physicians and grateful patients. Mercy Foundation is tremendously appreciative and grateful for the years of extraordinary dedication and service represented by Mark Read and Dr. Shatzel!

The Sisters of Mercy


Sister Eileen Enright, RSM:

Reflecting on the past and looking to the future This fall, as her beloved students mark the return to class, Sister Eileen Enright, RSM, President of Cristo Rey High School Sacramento, is marking a milestone of her own—her jubilee as a Sister of Mercy. “In some ways, I stand back and I think, ‘Can it really be 50 years?’” Sister Eileen reflects. “I’ve taken it day to day, year to year, and to now stand back and look—I realize that is only through God’s grace that this life is possible. He blesses us every step of the way with what we need.” For Sister Eileen, the jubilee anniversary offers a time for reflection, gratitude and humility. “For me, the jubilee means 50 years of professed, consecrated life. I look back and see that it is through great openness and trust that we move forward.”

Throughout the past 50 years, Sister Eileen has served others through her work in the Sacramento region, most notably in education. For 25 years, she served as teacher, principal and associate superintendent for Catholic schools at the Sacramento Diocese. She then spent 15 years working for Bishop William Weigand, first as director of lay personnel, then as chancellor and director of research and planning.

This year, Sister Eileen begins her sixth year as president of Cristo Rey. Her pride in the school and its students and staff is evident. “This year we have our largest enrollment yet—367 students,” she says. “We are continuing to grow and we are enjoying this beautiful new campus. We are so grateful to our donors and friends, Mercy Foundation, our board of directors, our staff and to the community for making this possible. It truly takes a village!” Looking forward, Sister Eileen is introspective. “I am always discerning what God is calling me to in the future. Through prayer and reflection, I trust that the path will become clear.” For now, Sister Eileen will continue to advocate for the students and staff at Cristo Rey, working to ensure that every possible opportunity is made available to those who work to earn it. And along the way, she will allow herself just a moment to reflect. “There is no way I could have imagined 50 years ago what I would be doing today. I truly stand in awe!”

emergency room. “The amazing gift of the robot provides real-time accessibility to the Sisters, allowing me to address urgent issues quickly.” says Dr. Wei Shatzel. “It’s having health care right in your own bedroom,” says Sister Susan McCarthy, who advocated for bringing the robot to the Life Center. “The Sisters know ‘Dr. Julie’ so well and she is so attentive to their care. With the robot, it is truly like having her right there with you. You can see her and talk to her. It’s remarkable!” Although initially reluctant to accept the generous gift, the Sisters appreciate the technology and the improved access to health care it brings. Having the robot at the Life Center has also inspired staff at the Dignity Health Telemedicine Network to explore new uses for the equipment, which had primarily been used as a means to connect rural hospitals with specialists at larger facilities.

By utilizing the technology of the telehealth robot, Dr. Julie Wei Shatzel (shown on screen) is able to provide care to the retired Sisters in Auburn in the convenience of their own home.

“The adventurous spirit of the Sisters combined with Dr. Wei Shatzel’s commitment to being an available provider has really made it work,” says Denise Pimintel, Dignity Health Telemedicine Network Telehealth ICU Coordinator. Pimintel feels strongly that providing the technology to the retired Sisters is also an important expression of gratitude. “I think of this telemedicine unit as a way to take care of our own—the Sisters who started the mission that we continue to carry out today. It is an opportunity for us as health care providers to reach out and support the women who started it all.” 3

Ministry News


New Friendship Park Underway at Loaves & Fishes Since 1983, Sacramento Loaves & Fishes has provided an avenue for the underserved in our community to receive food, shelter, and access to a variety of services, all in a safe and welcoming environment. For the past 20 years, Friendship Park has been the cornerstone of Loaves & Fishes. Originally intended as a place for guests to wait for the daily meal offered at Loaves & Fishes, Friendship Park has blossomed into a beacon of security, support and comfort. On a typical day, up to 700 men and women pass through Friendship Park between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. “The park is truly a source of privacy and peace for Sacramento's poor and homeless,” explains Sister Libby Fernandez, RSM, Executive Director, Loaves & Fishes. “It has become a place of acceptance where our guests can begin to feel they matter, a first step toward understanding they deserve more from life than the streets can offer.” After 20 years of continuous use, Friendship Park has become congested and dilapidated, outgrowing its current location, both in size and function. Planning began several years ago to create a new park that would not only be more comfortable for guests, but would also improve the campus’ efficiency. “We want Friendship Park to be safe and welcoming to all,” says Sister Libby. “Our new park will offer easier access to our services, including the dining room and the library.” Thanks to the generosity of the community and to Mercy Foundation donors, construction on the park is now underway with hopes of it being completed by late October. Mercy Foundation has helped raise over $1 million on the $2.5 million project. “Our efforts continue,” says Sister Libby. “We want to provide a wonderful spot for homeless men and women to come to during the day, with the best facilities and easy access to services they so desperately need. The new Friendship Park will do exactly that, but it is only possible with the support of our generous community…every dollar counts!”

“Our new park will serve as the hub for all of Loaves & Fishes,” says Sister Libby (shown above). “A memorial water feature honoring former guests will be the centerpiece for the relocated Friendship Park. The park will also provide new restrooms and showers for guests, as well as paved walkways, making it easier for our guests with walkers and wheelchairs to get around.” 4

Philanthropy in Action:

Cancer Institute nurse navigators are able to provide gas cards, bus passes and transportation service vouchers to Dignity Health patients undergoing cancer treatment.

Generous Mercy Foundation Donors Support Cancer Patients Cancer is a challenging illness, and for many patients who have limited income or lack of familial support, transportation to medical appointments creates additional obstacles. Patients facing lack of support and transportation hardship sometimes have no alternative but to go without the treatments they so desperately need.

Thanks to the generosity of Mercy Foundation donors who support the Area of Greatest Need, Mercy Foundation provides special grants to many of our ministries each year. Through the Oncology Transportation Grant, Mercy

In just the first 10 months of the year, the grant provided assistance to nearly 200 patients—patients who face the challenges of cancer and require help with the most ordinary task—getting to the treatments they need. Your gifts have helped remove an obstacle for hundreds of patients, changing their lives and allowing them to focus their energy on their health and healing…and for that, we thank you.

Honoring a Friend or Loved One

The Charitable Gift Annuity: Income for Life As people approach retirement, they often wonder how they will ensure a steady income for themselves. One option is a charitable gift annuity made through Mercy Foundation—the simplest, most affordable, and most popular way to receive lifetime income and still feel the satisfaction of making a substantial gift to the mission of the Sisters of Mercy. Many of our donors have used gift annuities to accomplish both their income and philanthropic goals. A Mercy Foundation charitable gift annuity can be set up with a gift of $10,000 or more and the benefits may include: • Fixed payments for life for you and/or a loved one • Partially tax-free income • An immediate income tax deduction • A lasting contribution to a Mercy Foundation supported ministry If you are interested in learning more about creating a charitable gift annuity, or to request a personal gift illustration, please call Kevin Duggan at (916) 851- 2703. You can also visit the Plan Your Legacy section of our website at supportmercyfoundation.org If you have left Mercy Foundation in your estate plan, please let us know so we may welcome you into our Legacy Society.

With the holidays soon approaching, you can embrace the spirit of the season by making a special gift in honor or in memory of someone who has inspired you. Gifts made “in honor” offer a unique way to celebrate and recognize those dear to you with a special holiday gift that will benefit others. Gifts “in memory” provide an opportunity for you to memorialize the legacy of someone meaningful, or express sympathy to a family who has lost a loved one. One hundred percent of your tribute gift supports the mission of the Sisters of Mercy and Mercy Foundation, helping to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, educate the underserved and care for the sick at local Dignity Health hospitals and clinics. For more information on tribute gifts, or to make a gift by phone, call: 916.851.2700 To make a gift online using our secure donation form, go to: supportmercyfoundation.org/ donate
