In the Community
Building Healthier Communities
Kaiser Permanente supports a range of activities to enrich the health of our communities. Through our local event sponsorships and grants program, we support, strengthen and enhance programs and organizations that address the health needs of our most vulnerable residents.
The Napa-Solano Area includes the Solano County communities of Benicia, Dixon, Fairfield, Rio Vista, Suisun City, Vacaville and Vallejo, as well as the Napa County communities of American Canyon, Calistoga, Napa, Oakville, Rutherford, St.Helena and Yountville.
Through a community needs assessment, we have identified priority health and social needs to help guide our contributions to the community. The health priority needs identified through 2019 are:
- Healthy Eating, Active Living (HEAL)
- Access to Health Care Services
- Behavioral Health
- Community and Family Safety
