Community Benefit and Outreach

Community Benefit Program

St. Charles Health System has been contributing to programs that benefit the communities it serves since its inception. St. Charles makes it a priority to take care of underserved, disadvantaged populations throughout Central Oregon by funding community benefit programs that will increase population health in a sustainable, cost-effective manner. 

Community Benefit Program

By collaborating with other nonprofit organizations in the area, St. Charles aims to implement and support best-practice and evidence-based initiatives that address community needs and improve the overall health status of our region.

Applications for funding are submitted to the St. Charles Community Benefit Department and vetted based on their alignment with St. Charles strategic priorities, identified need, impact on target population and other application qualifications. In order for a community health initiative to be considered for approval, applications must address one or more of the following priorities:

  • Improve access to health care services
  • Enhance the health of the community
  • Advance medical or health care knowledge
  • Relieve or reduce the burden on government or other community efforts
