Engaged in our community

Release Date: 08/24/2015

Inland Hospital is proud to announce its Community Benefit grant recipients for 2015. Inland’s mission is “to care for and serve our community” and we proudly live that mission inside and outside of the hospital and medical practices. Inland considers it a priority to contribute in many different ways to the health and well-being of the people in the communities we serve.

To successfully achieve our mission, Inland commits resources, both financially and in people power, to maintain and improve our community’s well-being. Inland contributes more than $50,000 in the form of grants to non-profit organizations and schools in the hospital service area that are working to improve quality of life.

This year, Inland awarded funds to  more than three dozen local organizations for community-building projects and health initiatives that focus on our identified health priorities: access to care; obesity prevention; chronic disease management; poverty and economic opportunity; education; substance abuse prevention; dental health; mental health; homelessness; domestic violence; and transportation. In addition, Inland awarded mini grants to 18 local schools that are registered with Let’s Go! 5-2-1-0, a childhood obesity prevention program supported by Inland Hospital.

We are proud to contribute to the outstanding work of all these organizations.
