The Next Chapter

The Next Chapter Program is a six-month program for people who are approaching retirement or who are recently retired. The program assists individuals who are discerning who God is calling them to be and what God is calling them to do in their next chapter of life. The program is grounded in Ignatian spirituality and is sponsored by the Office of Ignatian Spirituality of the Jesuits USA Central & Southern Province. The next cohort will begin in October. Information sessions will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday, May 13, and Wednesday, June 5, at Mercy Conference and Retreat Center, 2039 Geyer Road in Frontenac. To RSVP for an information session, email Tom Auffenberg at [email protected]. For more information, see www.nextchapterprogram.org.

Mercy to build new Wentzville campus

Mercy announced that it has filed a letter of intent with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services to construct a 75-bed hospital in Wentzville. The new campus will address a population growth in the state’s tri-county area, including St. Charles, Lincoln and Warren counties. With a projected investment of $650 million, the 483,000-square-foot medical complex will be located on approximately 60 acres near the intersection of Interstate 64 and Interstate 70 and be the state’s first completely new, acute-care hospital campus built since 2015 when Mercy opened its hospital in Joplin following the 2011 tornado.

Mercy’s focus on the tri-county region began in 2010 when a community master plan was developed, tapping area residents and leaders for feedback about needed services. It intends to expand its model of health care to the tri-county area in the years to come.
