people through our outreach programs.
“Day by day, Presence Health works to ensure that
everyone has access to the right care in the right
place at the right time.
It’s a tall order and a complex task, but we are committed to connecting people with the
care, experts, resources and education they need to be their healthiest, no matter where
they live or what their income. We are passionate about creating an inclusive culture of
health that transforms lives and strengthens communities.
This report is brimming with evidence of our efforts—programs offered, dollars spent,
people served, number of employees, doctors and sites of care. But it’s the individuals
who are impacted by our care, not the numbers, that matter most.”
