Like so many of our neighbors, we love our community. We’re committed to contributing to its prosperity and health. That's why hundreds of Samaritan employees act as volunteers, non-profit board members, church and community leaders. It's also why we support other non-profit organizations through our annual Social Accountability grants. And it's why we provide free community health programs and charity care for thousands of low-income patients.
All of these things are part of our Community Benefit program, which encompasses our efforts to build healthier communities through volunteerism, direct and in-kind support of community health programs, and opportunities for those who could not otherwise afford medical care.
Each year, we create a Community Benefit Plan, which details a comprehensive strategy for building the health of our community through a variety of programs services.The plan includes important information about the current health status of our region and establishes six major goals for improving community health.
