Population and Community Health

Community commitment to strengthen the health of our region

At Dartmouth Health, we never lose sight of the fact that our work extends beyond the walls of our hospitals and facilities.

We know that your health is the product of many factors in your life, not just the services you receive in a hospital or clinic. We are committed to providing the highest quality care for our patients and working with community partners to improve the conditions that impact our well-being. This includes access to healthy foods, childcare, transportation, and safe housing.

Our Population Health teams work to make sure each person can be as healthy as possible. We do this by meeting your needs both in the clinic and back at home. Improving access to nutritious food is one example of the bridging work we do. When you come to a clinic, you receive the clinical care you need, and you may also answer questions about your ability to get healthy food. Our teams work with you to find ways to make it easier to get the nutrition you need so you can be as healthy as possible. And we work across the region with community organizations who are the experts in growing and distributing food. We support their efforts so all of us have access to healthy foods.

We strive to meet the needs of our patients and our communities so that everyone can be as healthy as possible.
