Whole and healthy people build healthy families and contribute to thriving communities. Wellness is so much more than the lack of infirmity. Wellness involves the whole of one’s physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. Over 50% of the issues that patients bring to their primary care physician are psychosocial rather than physical. It is important to note, though one may not be physically sick, they are not necessarily well.
We want it to be possible for every person in our community to access the resources they need to create whole and healthy lives. We also want it to be more probable that they can do so regardless of their zip code, background, ethnicity, ability, or social status. To accomplish this, we are partnering with others across sectors to ensure the equitable implementation of these resources.
We are looking for ways to help improve outcomes while lowering costs and exploring ways to block the effect of poverty on wellness. We are promoting a community where wellness is a consideration in every decision, where healthcare services meet the needs of the whole person, and root causes of the problems patients are experiencing are addressed.
Every person should have the type of care and support they need in the way they need it when they need it.
