Empowering Our Communities

October 08, 2015 | Scott Reiner

Adventist Health is committed to realizing our mission, “to share God’s love by providing physical, mental and spiritual healing,” in the 75-plus communities we serve every day. From the windward side of Oahu to the redwoods of California and the Walla Walla Valley in the Pacific Northwest, we are working diligently to transform the delivery of care to better serve our patients, their families and the broader communities.

Throughout Adventist Health, our workforce is leading the way to make a difference in the lives of those we serve. From operating clinics in rural areas that might not otherwise receive any care to taking a moment to pray with individuals in crisis, the people of Adventist Health are living our mission every day.

Smart growth is also a major component of our strategic initiatives. We are actively seeking opportunities to create new working relationships with hospitals, other providers, payers — and even some competitors — that align with our goals and extend our mission.

Every day Adventist Health empowers healthy communities by improving access to comprehensive, quality health care services and enhancing the quality of life for those we serve through health programs that have been collaboratively identified and prioritized. We also provide health professions education, research and other health services that would be otherwise unavailable to those in need. We are proud to extend our mission into the communities we serve. Together we can build stronger, healthier and more resilient communities.
