Eastgate Village’s local neighbor, Mercy Hospital, was the recent proud recipient of a $500,00 donation check from the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, an event that brought over 4,000 participants who raised an astonishing $9.1 million.

Mercy’s Foundation will use the generous grant¬†to support the patient navigation program at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center, enhance services with the addition of a state-of-the-art Breast Module Tracking System, and supports the purchase of a new digital mammography machine and ultrasound platform.

Eastgate Village is home to many of Mercy’s physicians and other clinical staff, as well as high-energy, interesting¬†professionals who work all over Chicago. Many thanks to Avon in supporting our important neighbor!
