Javon Bea, Mercy Health System CEO - Mercy Foundation’s EMS Scholarship Fund was established in honor of Dr. Michael Kellum, a longtime emergency medicine physician and EMS medical director at Mercy Health System. Dr. Kellum was instrumental in improving and simplifying CPR and other EMS services with his research and devotion to increasing cardiac arrest survival rates. With Dr. Kellum’s help, Mercy was the first rural area (Rock and Walworth counties) in the world to institute chest compression-only CPR to cardiac arrest patients.

Mercy Foundation’s mission is to inspire positive change and healing through philanthropic giving. Gifts and donations support community outreach programs, certain capital improvements, technological advancements and other programs integral to the mission of Mercy Health System.
