Community Benefit Programs

Our community benefit programs must meet the following requirements:

  • Consistent with our mission as a non profit organization
  • Exemplify our John Muir Health values
  • Address unmet community needs
  • Support our most vulnerable community members with health education, prevention, early detection, and intervention services, while providing  increased access and support to maintain an optimal quality of life.

How We Invest in Programs

John Muir Health makes its community benefit contributions through three avenues: the John Muir/Mt. Diablo Community Health Fund, Community Health Improvement, and our Patient Financial Assistance program. This approach extends our reach by supporting community-based organizations and firmly connects our hospital and clinical expertise to community programs.

Our community programs and partnerships are managed through the Community Health Improvement Department. By connecting John Muir Health expertise with that of community-based organizations, we can do more than either entity could do alone. Learn more More arrow
