Engaging our mission in the community, beyond our hospitals' walls
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:
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 Health Improvement 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 1991 Dignity Health has made 3,700 grant awards totaling $86 million.
Are you dealing with an ongoing health condition? Are you taking care of someone with an ongoing health condition? Consider one of our six week Healthier Living Workshops.
Our hospitals conduct needs assessments and create implementation strategies to identify and address significant community health needs. Our current reports and strategies are linked on this page.
