For Community

Community Benefit

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. SJH-SC has formed one county-wide Community Benefit department, which serves the service areas of both Petaluma Valley Hospital and Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.

Our work is planned and carried out in response to regularly conducted community health needs assessments. Based on the most recent assessment, our five current priorities are as follows:

  • Access to Care
  • Healthy Eating and Active Living
  • Mental Health and Substance Abuse
  • Healthy Aging
  • Oral Health

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.
