Community Impact

Tanner Health System is a nonprofit healthcare provider. Our mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve — not to generate revenues for shareholders.

Every day, our team impacts the lives of people throughout our region. As a small health system serving a rural area, we know that we’re not just caring for patients — we’re caring for neighbors.

You probably know someone on our team, and we know that everyone for whom we care is linked to someone we know. We shop together, we work together, we worship together, we play together and our children go to school together.

We’re proud to highlight the different ways we make a difference in your life.

Some of the ways we work for a healthier region aren’t surprising — we provide a continuum of care, we recruit doctors to our community and we offer programs to fight cancer, heart disease and other illnesses.

But you might be surprised to learn how many of our efforts are beyond the traditional scope of a community hospital. We’re addressing food deserts, we’re helping area municipalities design safer projects for cyclists and pedestrians, we’re offering free evidence-based classes to battle chronic disease and more.

This region’s health is our mission. And this is how we’re fulfilling that mission.
