Community Engagement

Working Together to Make Our Communities Healthy Places to Live, Work and Play

WellSpan believes that our impact on health is strengthened by our partnerships with community organizations. Support for our vital partners includes community partnership grants, sponsorships and our ongoing work with local health coalitions in our counties. Maintaining and strengthening partnerships, with these entities and many others, is essential to building healthy and thriving communities for current and future generations. WellSpan supports the advancement of community-wide programs and services focused on preventive health and safety. Our Community Partnership Grant program invested $1.4 million in nonprofit organizations in 2022 as we supported initiatives that advanced our Community Health Improvement Plan priorities.
