Supporting Other Nonprofits With a Shared Mission

For many years, Samaritan Health Services has partnered with other local nonprofits to address the unmet health and medical needs of underserved populations, through its Social Accountability grants.

For this current cycle of grant funding, Samaritan will award close to $1 million to support nonprofit organizations in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties. The new funding process required collaborations among organizations, with funds disbursed over three years. 

“The Social Accountability funding reflects an important extension of our health care mission,” said Doug Boysen, president and CEO of Samaritan Health Services.

“We are pleased to provide this support for dozens of local organizations to assist with their health-related programs and services,” Boysen continued. “These partnerships represent an important component in Samaritan’s mission of building healthier communities together.”
