As a values based organization, St. Joseph Health has a long-standing commitment
to the community it serves. We commit resources to improve the quality
of life in the communities we serve, with special emphasis on the needs
of the poor and underserved. St. Joseph Health in Northern California
has formed county-wide Community Benefit departments, which serves the
service areas of Humboldt, Napa, and Sonoma Counties. Through the development
and implementation of these key programs and initiatives, Community Benefit
helps generate improved mental, physical and spiritual health.
Our work is planned and carried out in response to regularly conducted
community health needs assessments. Based on our most recent assessments,
the top priorities are:
- Access to Care
- Healthy Eating and Active Living
- Mental Health and Substance Abuse
- Health Aging
- Oral Health
- Children’s Health and Well-Being
- Childbirth, Breastfeeding, and Parenting Classes and Support Groups
- Care Transitions from Hospital to Home
- And Many More!
These Community Benefit programs and activities are carefully monitored
to document and measure progress and this information is reported annually
through the medical center's Community Benefit Report.

We are excited to share with you the
2016 SJH Community Partnerships Annual Report:
Serving the Dear Neighbor, A Legacy of Caring. This report describes some of the many ways St. Joseph Health seeks to
improve the wellbeing of our communities, not only through care for the
poor and traditional charity care, but through grant initiatives from
the SJH Community Partnerships Fund that support nonprofit organizations
working for the common good. 2016 also marks the 30th anniversary of the Community Partnerships Fund, which has provided more
than $216.5 million in grant funding since its inception in 1986.
