Working Together for a Bright Future

As we all know, health care is undergoing significant transformation. With those changes come opportunities to progress, grow our services and enhance our vision for a bright future.

Adventist Health's mission motivates us to seek the best for our communities and to deliver the best value to our patients. It's Adventist Health's obligation to provide optimal and affordable health care to the communities we serve.

Throughout this period in health care, our leaders, physicians and devoted employees are working together to remain focused on and dedicated to patient safety, quality, innovation and stewardship, as we each aim to be living examples of our mission.

Throughout this special issue of the GLEANER, you will read stories from across our four-state system about how Adventist Health is working to make futures brighter for our community members — from one hospital's efforts to share a plant-based diet with the community to another’s program that partners with churches to provide in-home volunteer services for the elderly. You’ll also read about our hospice services in the Pacific Northwest and the gentle care that is provided at the end of life.

I don’t want to give anything away, so read the following pages for yourself. I hope you enjoy this spotlight on Adventist Health. If you wish to know more about us and how we are working toward a bright future, please visit
