Our Commitment & Mission
The Parkview Health mission centers on one essential commitment: improving the health of the communities we serve. As a not-for-profit organization, Parkview reinvests its resources into services and programs that directly impact the health and well-being of people of all ages.
The Community Health Improvement Program helps accomplish this mission. Parkview’s Community Health Improvement Program was established in 1998 as a means of giving something back to the communities we serve.
What is a community benefit
Community benefit describes Parkview programs or activities that provide treatment or promote health and healing as a response to identified community needs. Community benefit is also the term used as the basis of our tax-exempt, not-for-profit status.

- Improve access to healthcare services

- Advance medical or health knowledge
- Relieve or reduce the burden of government or other community efforts
