A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO

      To Our Communities:

      As outlined in our 2018 Community Health Needs Assessment, the following social determinants of
      health emerged across the communities of all Swedish locations during the assessment process:
      mental health, drug addiction, homelessness, obesity and diabetes, and joint or back pain.

      We have completed the development of a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) to specifically
      address many of these barriers, including strategies and measures, towards making our community
      a healthier place. The CHIP outlines the process of strengthening our existing programs across the
      Swedish system along with identifying new programs and resources to support those, and build
      and sustain our partnerships with key organizations to collaborate on solutions.

      The next phase will involve broad implementation of the action plans details included in this
      2019- 2022 CHIP, and monitoring and evaluating its short-term and long-term outcomes.

      As CEO, I am proud to lead Swedish in creating health for a better world.

                                 R. Guy Hudson, M.D., MBA
