Caring for Our Community

Community Benefit Report 2012 girl

At Seattle Children’s, we’re always thinking of the health and well-being of every child, teen and family in the community. We reach beyond our hospital every day to provide programs and services to make children, teens and families safer and healthier where they live. Our commitment to caring for the community is our passion, our duty and our privilege.

Community Benefit and Advocacy Programs

Our commitment to caring for the community is our passion, our duty, and our privilege. We advocate for children and their families and offer resources and services where they live.

Next Steps

Assessing the health of the community is an important step in developing community benefit programs. The results of the assessment helped us focus our efforts on the most urgent community health needs and develop our Community Benefit Implementation Plan (PDF). We have identified the following priority areas to work on:

  • Access to high-quality healthcare
  • Coordinated care for children and teens with chronic conditions
  • Health equity and access in south King County
  • Obesity
  • Mental and behavioral health

Read our progress report (PDF) to see how we are doing in each priority area.
