Our vision is bold. Our mission is practical. Our values are unwavering. This has been the case since opening our doors over 30 years ago. And it will be the case for the next 30 years.

Since we first opened our doors, we have invested over $16 million in hundreds of health-related programs, projects, and health education activities. We are proud of our legacy and excited about our future.
