CEO Healthcare Column


Partnering with your health in mind.   

The CDC describes social determinants of health (SDOH) as, “The nonmedical factors that influence health outcomes. They are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and age and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life.”

Access to quality health care is extremely important to our well-being, but so is living in a safe neighborhood and having quality education, healthy relationships, opportunities to remain social, and steady employment.

How do we address such a broad spectrum of needs? Through partnerships. Our impact as a single entity is limited, but together our reach, creativity, and ability to make positive changes in our community has no bounds.

As we begin 2024, we look forward to strengthening partnerships and creating new relationships in our community that allow us to optimize the impact of our mission, vision, and strategies to better serve you now and in the future.

Cheers to health and happiness,
Mary Ellen Pratt, FACHE, CEO
