Community Health Improvement Services

Prevention, wellness and health promotion efforts

These activities work to improve community health, and include community health education and prevention services. Such services do not generate patient bills, although they may involve a nominal fee.


In fiscal year 2017, Scripps invested more than $7.5 million in services aimed at improving community health and subsidized health services.
