• Changing the World Together


    Engaging our mission in the community, beyond our hospitals' walls

Community Health and Outreach


Our hospitals share a commitment to excellent care that spans decades. Through an investment in community health and outreach, the hospitals address priority health issues and extend a commitment of care to neighborhoods throughout the greater Sacramento region.

Our Collaborative Partnerships, Services and Programs

The mission-driven commitment of community health and outreach for the Sacramento services area includes hospital sponsored programs and as well as regional partnership efforts and initiatives.
Some examples of our collaborative partnerships, services and programs include: 

Community Grants

We can't change the world by ourselves. Partnering with others who share our vision and values is the only way to bring about real improvements in the healthcare system. Our Community Grants program is one way we are working with others to increase access to quality care. Organizations that receive grant funds from us are working to improve access to healthcare services for people in low-income and minority communities. Since this program began in 1990 we have made grant awards to nearly 3,010 projects totaling $52.1 million. Learn More
