Group Health Community Involvement

Group Health exists to improve the health and well-being of our members and the communities we serve. As a responsible employer and a not-for-profit organization, giving back to the community is part of our social mission. We encourage our members and staff to engage in their own health journey and offer support for staff who volunteer their resources in the community.

Group Health has completed a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and a corresponding Implementation Strategy, and has established new community engagement strategies based on the community needs identified in the CHNA:

  • Uninsured and unmet medical needs 
  • Depression and mental illness
  • Obesity, physical inactivity, unhealthy eating, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and chronic disease

See our Community Health Needs Assessment

Our community engagement also focuses on:

  • Support for initiatives, programs, and services that focus on health in our communities
  • Support of staff involvement in the community through the Staff Grant Program
  • Civic business engagement by senior leaders and medical leadership
