2012 Allina Health community benefit and engagement report

This 24-page report highlights the partnerships and investments Allina Health has made to connect with our communities to fulfill our mission.

At Allina Health, we believe health care is more than just treating people when they are sick. We are committed to improving community health and helping people to live healthier lives.

As a trusted and compassionate partner, Allina Health ensures community benefit and engagement is an integral part of our culture and strategic plan. We invest in these efforts, not because we have to, but because we believe in them.

In 2012, Allina Health contributed more than $200 million to improving the health of those we serve in Minnesota, western Wisconsin and beyond.

"We do this by connecting with patients, families, neighbors, schools and other organizations to creatively address public health and wellness challenges," says Ellie Zuehlke, director of community benefit and engagement.

Allina Health in the community: 2011

Good health begins at home, in schools and in the workplace where people shape their own lives and the lives of their families.

And that's where we can truly make a difference in helping people prevent injury, illness and disease.

From the generous outpouring of support provided by more than 24,000 Allina Health employees to programs aimed at improving health and wellness, we're changing the way we connect with people.

"We're engaging with our communities like never before," said Ellie Zuehlke, director of Community Benefit and Engagement. "These partnerships are helping to pave the way to healthier communities now and in the future."
