COMMUNITY HEALTH IMPROVEMENT

Beyond providing traditional hospital-based care, not-for-profit hospitals sponsor health-related activities which promote wellness to benefit the community at large. Such community outreach activities address gaps in care which often result in disparities in health status for under and uninsured populations. 

UniHealth Foundation is committed to supporting community health improvement activities of hospitals by funding health education, prevention and treatment programs. Health education includes information dissemination on a broad range of topics, including health systems navigation and informed consumerism or the development of culturally sensitive educational materials. Prevention, in addition to clinical preventive services, might include injury and violence prevention or caregiver support services. Funding for treatment services targets activities aimed at improving health status and quality of life, including aspects of chronic condition management, dental care, end-of-life care and rehabilitation services.
