Legacy of Leadership
The Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce would not be able to function without support from all of its 1,500+ member organizations. It is because of your commitment to us that we can continue our work to increase opportunities for businesses of every size to succeed – and to grow jobs, our workforce and investment in the region.
A handful of organizations have gone above and beyond in their support of our mission and our initiatives, and we recognize them here as part of our Legacy of Leadership. A special thank you to these organizations for their dedication to the Chamber!

Mercy - Keeping Springfield Healthy Since 1891
For over 125 years – longer than any other health care provider – Mercy has partnered with Springfield. We’ve grown with our community and its people. We’ve been there as our city grew into a place where businesses thrive, where families flourish and where leaders are born, grow up and learn to dream big dreams. We’ve worked together to help our neighbors, friends and family feel their best and live their lives to the fullest.
Today, we’re still working to give everyone in Springfield access to a health care system that’s been recognized as one of the five best in the nation.
We’re using technology to give you easy access to care though tools like:
- Online scheduling that lets you make your appointment with a minimum of clicks
- First Available, a tool that gives you the soonest appointment with the nearest provider
- And MyMercy, a free online application that lets you manage your health from your computer, smartphone or tablet device whenever you need to from wherever you are
