Community Health & Outreach
At Steward Health Care System, our commitment to helping our communities stay healthy and safe goes far beyond our walls. Improving the overall health of the individuals who live in our communities is a top priority, but a healthy community is more than just the absence of illness. Through our community health programs, we seek to respond to major health needs, promote healthy eating and active living, support safer neighborhoods, and improve overall wellness.
Achieving healthy communities requires a collaborative approach.
Each of our community hospitals plays a vital role in upholding our commitment to delivering affordable health care to our communities by building relationships and working with community partners to make measurable, sustainable improvements on important health problems.
Through a system-wide approach, we partner to improve the health of our communities and focus on three areas:
- Prevention and health promotion
- Commitment to the underserved and promoting health equality
- Addressing the social determinants of health
