“Providing increased access to primary care and oral health services is a critical component of a person’s overall health and well-being," observed Tony Woods, Executive Chairman of the Foundation. "We’re very pleased that these initiatives will serve a diverse group of individuals who would otherwise go without much-needed healthcare.”
The need is great. Out of the 2.2 million people in Deaconess' nine county grant focus area, 39% (872,498) fall into the federal poverty threshold. Over half are not served by health centers and about 7,000 are homeless; numbers are on the rise. Deaconess Associations Foundation invests in advancing access to health care services for those most in need. Advancing health, advancing people.
