Access to health care and health education is one of the most urgent issues facing the communities Covenant Health System serves. That's why each year we allocate 10 percent of our net bottom line to community outreach programs that improve health services for those who are underprivileged, uninsured or geographically isolated.
To give our efforts greater impact, we formed the Covenant Community Health Screening Initiative. This group works to identify underserved communities and organize comprehensive screening clinics that provide education, early detection and ensure follow-up care where necessary.
Based on demographic health data from the communities we serve, we focus on the following areas:
- Obesity awareness and lifestyle education
- Mental Health
- Oral health and hygiene
- Diabetes education, prevention and early detection
- Improving health care access
