Health happens outside the doctor’s office, which is why we partner with national and local organizations to improve the health and wellness of our community.
Our community partnerships focus on the issues that shape our health and include:
- Pedal Minnesota to help our state be the most bike-friendly and encourage bike safety
- American Heart Association through the education and awareness campaigns such as Power to End Stroke program and the Most Powerful Voices Gospel Tour
- National Alliance on Mental Illness on many mental health initiatives, including a state-wide anti-stigma campaign
- “Make It OK” is a campaign to reduce the stigma of mental illnesses. We have pledged our commitment to change the hearts and minds about the misconceptions of mental illnesses by encouraging open conversations and education on the topic.
- Renewing the Countryside to support healthy local food in our communities
- Honoring Choices Minnesota to promote discussions about end of life choices and the importance of advance care planning such as advance care directives
- American Diabetes Association Diabetes Expo at the Minneapolis Convention Center where our diabetes educators conduct health screenings, answer questions and host educational programs
We’re giving back through volunteering and global initiatives.
We’re proud our employees take an active role to improve the health of our community.
Commitment to workplace giving
Our Community Giving Campaign allows employees donate to charities they are passionate about. They support research, patient care and education through our Sharing at Work program.
Community service awards
Each year, we honor employees who live our mission and values and make an impact on the communities we serve with the Wilbur Thomas Community Service Award.
Sustainability and Social responsibility
We work smarter and save money when we use sustainable and earth-friendly practices. From safe medication disposal to energy efficiency enhancements, we are committed to provide a healthier and cleaner community for our employees, members, patients and future generations.
Global community and international development
HealthPartners employees take our mission beyond our local community and have gone global. Their work improves the lives of others through medical mission trips and disaster relief from Nicaragua to India to Uganda.
Better access to quality preventive care with more accountability means improved community health outcomes. We developed a cooperative health financing model that empowers over 30,000 members to access health care in rural Uganda.
We’re consumer governed and invite community members to help guide us.
We want to understand the perspective of our members and patients to improve the way we deliver care and services. Our Patient Council provides regular opportunity to hear feedback on a wide range of topics.
