We are extremely proud to have such a dedicated community of supporters who are aligned with our mission, vision and values, and who continually step forward to make key investments in our work and, most importantly, in the lives of patients and families in our community.
Through your support, our team flourishes — improving patient lives, developing new solutions to meet the unique needs of each person, removing health-care disparities, and reaching more people with high quality, patient-centered care. Patient satisfaction and quality outcomes are paramount to our ongoing success and our ability to best serve our patients.
Some of our 2019 accomplishments include:
The unified board of directors, leadership team and providers guide each department and service expansion to achieve the agency’s vision of providing everyone in our community an opportunity to live a long and healthy life. More than half of our board of directors is comprised of patients, to make sure that decisions affecting patients will include their important input. We are very proud of achieving significant organizational development as well as financial stability this year as a united team.
The year 2019 filled us with gratitude towards our partners, staff, patients and you, for your philanthropy. Together we are achieving great things, but we never forget there is still so much more that we must do. We are very grateful for all you do to advance access to care for those in need.
Although the Covid-19 pandemic did not hit until 2020, its impact on Greater Seacoast Community Health is too important to leave out of this report.
Making myriad decisions and changes under pressure, while knowing that some staff faced health risks when doing their jobs, was challenging and stressful. But it was also inspiring and energizing: Our staff’s varied and deep expertise, their incredible dedication, and the value of our diverse programs have never been so evident, or so needed, as they have been in the past few months. Some examples:
I’m a disabled Nana with guardianship of my five grandchildren. My downtime each week is the Family Center’s online grandparents meeting. I talk about my week to people who understand and give advice. I think without my groups right now I would be lost. The Family Center has kept me going through this crazy time.
Taking care of my family while navigating this pandemic has been stressful. Having virtual parenting groups to connect with other parents and share frustrations and strategies has been a valuable resource. These groups help me to stay focused on the positive. They reinforce my strengths as a parent and enable me to feel a sense of community in spite of the pandemic.
The “emergency” feeling has lessened now, as these and many other changes — like masks, social distancing, and pre-entry screenings — have become the new normal. Our Emergency Operations Team has gradually scaled back our meetings from six days a week in March to “as needed” today. While the future path of this pandemic is uncertain, our team is ready for whatever community-health challenges lie ahead.
