Tell us more about this new community health foundation. What makes you so convinced it’s a good thing?
We’ve heard from experts about some of the transformative changes those foundations can achieve in improving a community’s health. We have a great deal of faith in our own citizens’ abilities to shape a foundation that truly addresses our own health care needs. It’s also well funded; there’s a $32.4 million commitment in this agreement — with the possibility of more. We haven’t yet engaged the right mix of leaders, consultants and health care professionals to help us put shape to that foundation and we are looking forward to getting started in 2016.
