Community Giving

Home » About Us » Community Giving

As one of the largest healthcare providers in Western New York, Catholic Health is continually looking for ways to improve the health of the local community.

In 2014, we provided more than $82 million in charity care and community benefit activities to help make our community a healthier place, especially for the poor and underserved.

Community Health Assessment

To better understand the health issues faced by Western New Yorkers, we conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment every three years. 

Following this assessment, we develop a plan to address those health issues.

2013 Community Health Needs Assessment

As in prior years, the 2013 assessment focused on addressing health disparities in the region and improve access to care, especially for the poor and disadvantaged. Through its network of primary care centers and targeted community outreach programs, Catholic Health is serving many of the area’s most vulnerable residents.
