While Citrus Valley Health Partners (CVHP) is focused on healing the sick,
we are also dedicated to reaching out to those who may never walk through
our doors. The young woman with a family history of breast cancer who
wants to learn about early detection. Parents whose child was just diagnosed
with juvenile diabetes. The older man who unexpectedly loses his life’s
mate and doesn’t know where to turn. On average, our Community Wellness
Services department offers more than 50 different programs, services and
support groups each month – curriculum covering a variety of health
and wellness topics for the entire family.
CVHP is an organization recognized for our outstanding community outreach
efforts and accomplishments. An organization dedicated to creating innovative
partnerships among the numerous health and social service organizations
in our valley, with close to 100 agencies forming a collaborative relationship
devoted to promoting community health and well-being.
For example, CVHP’s
Partnership Nursing Program is based on the concept that through working partnerships between faith
communities, community organizations and medical professionals, health
and wellness issues can be significantly improved.
Every Child’s Healthy Option (ECHO) is a collaborative effort involving CVHP, local school districts
and health providers that ensures that every child, regardless of income
level, has access to quality health care.
Promoters of Health is a peer education program designed to teach and inspire at-risk children
– ages 12 to 20 – to make healthy decisions. And through the
Get Enrollment Moving program, also known as GEM, volunteers and CVHP staff members work together
to recruit eligible families and enroll them in Medi-Cal, Healthy Families
or other state programs. Families must meet certain criteria to qualify
and cost varies depending on income, number of children and other factors.
The program is funded by state and county grants awarded to CVHP.
For CVHP’s accomplishments and outstanding efforts to improve the
community’s health and well-being, we were named winner of a
1999 VHA Leadership Award in Community Health Improvement. CVHP was one of only eight honorees nationwide
to receive a Voluntary Hospitals of America, Inc. (VHA) award in 1999
and was the only California-based organization to be recognized.
As a team of the four finest health care institutions in the region, our
collective strengths enable us to continue the commitment to excellence
the San Gabriel Valley has come to know and trust.
