Every year, Cadence Health finds new ways to improve the health of you and your neighbors. Through community health needs assessments and other planning efforts, Cadence Health identifies the strongest needs in our communities, and invests millions of dollars back into local communities through programs such as:
Access to care for low-income and uninsured patients is a growing issue in DuPage and Kane counties. To better ensure low-income county residents can afford and receive necessary health care, Cadence Health provided an operational grant of $987,000 in 2014 to help fund Access DuPage and other community efforts serving those in need.
Community-Based Heart Failure Program
This program targets patients who have been hospitalized with heart failure and, once released, will care for themselves at home. Its goal is to offer patients education and guidance for the first 90 days after discharge, helping them be active participants in their own care and lowering the chance of being readmitted to the hospital.
Community Outreach Programming
A variety of outreach programs are available to promote healthy living, such as classes and educational courses for healthy eating, parenting, smoking cessation and babysitting instruction. Download the Cadence Health Program Calendar .
