In honor of his lifelong commitment to the Friends of Mercy and Mercy Hospital itself, the Friends of Mercy board has moved to rename this fun filled night “The Andy Healey Luau. 

Andy was a major force within the Friends of Mercy beginning as a teenager when he was part of the Honor Guard in 1972 at his first Mercy Ball.  Andy dedicated 45 years of service to the “Friends”.  He served as Chairman of multiple events over the years and was involved on almost every committee year after year. Andy is a former Past Vice President and President of the Friends of Mercy.  For the last 9 years Andy served as Advisor to the FOM Board.  In 2015, Andy proudly received the prestigious Theodore Roosevelt award for his  dedication and service.

Andy enjoyed every Friends of Mercy event, but none more so than his beloved Mercy Luau which he originally introduced to the FOM event lineup and also served as chairman. Donning his festive Hawaiian shirt he led the famous “Reverse Raffle”.  Never shy to sell “some” raffle tickets, Andy reached out to all of his close friends, colleagues and cohorts to make it a most successful event. Along with Andy’s family, we are proud to now call this the Andy Healey Luau! We hope you all have a great night in Andy’s honor.  Aloha!


The Luau will support two exciting projects coming to Mercy Hospital: the opening of the Pain Management Center of Excellence and a state-of-the-art Pre-Surgical Testing Center, both expected to open in 2023.

Proceeds & Support

Proceeds 2022

Profits generated from Friends of Mercy events will be split between two areas for 2022.

*$100K to the upcoming Pain Management Center of Excellence slated to open in the 4th Qtr. of this year.  This location will be a 5,00 0 square foot, state of the art facility that will boast highly advanced equipment, multiple treatment options to give patients safe and effective pain management (without the need of opioids) and an interdisciplinary medical team to assist with the management of acute and chronic pain.

*$100K to the forthcoming Pre-Surgical Testing Center scheduled to open first quarter 2023. The Pre-Surgical Center will be located on the second floor of the impending Family Care Center.  Building the PST Center outside the hospital will allow patients to not have to enter the hospital as they complete their pre-surgical preparation. This new site promises to improve patient satisfaction while offering this much needed service to the community in a more convenient setting.
