The Gift of Hope
Health behaviors, socioeconomic factors, and the physical environment account for 80% of health. While Providence St. Mary will always invest in exceptional acute and clinical, we are expanding our health impact outside the walls of the medical center by providing navigation, education and tools that empower people to be healthy. As the healthcare leader in our region, we deliver comprehensive services that elevate community health. Since we cannot bill insurance for these preventative programs, your investment makes this work possible.
The COVID-19 pandemic showed us first-hand how important this work is. Your support equipped the Population Health team to take the front lines of the pandemic response. Community Health Workers were tasked with making calls to COVID positive patients who were quarantining in their homes. They discovered that people were struggling with their mental health. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to provide mental health first aid kits to keep people afloat.
When a need arises in our community, the Population Health team rises to the challenge to meet it. This work wouldn’t be possible without you. Because of you, we recently hired a Promotores de Salud Community Health worker to help connect with our LatinX neighbors.
The Good Samaritan Fund directly supports those struggling with illness who face significant physical, emotional, and financial burden. Your gift to the Good Samaritan Fund helps to address the barriers to health and recovery that are often overlooked or not covered by insurance.
