Community engagement

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.

Community partners

Our community partnerships focus on the issues that shape our health and include:

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.
