Community Outreach

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.
