  • Increase the number of partners in The Health Collaborative
  • Decrease duplication of health services in the community and promote coordinated efforts for the best possible community health outcome
  • Adopt an appropriate community health improvement measurement system

Our Values:

  • Dignity: Respect for the worth of every person, recognition and commitment to the value of diverse individuals and perspectives, and special concern for the poor and underserved.
  • Integrity: Honesty, justice, and consistency in all relationships.
  • Excellence: High standards of service and performance.
  • Compassion: Service in a spirit of empathy, love, and concern.
