Community Outreach

Creating a healthy community is what we do. It’s what we believe in. It’s what we do best. It’s our commitment to our community.

Salina Regional Health Center employees truly make a difference in this community. Not only do they provide care to our patients, they are also out in the community providing health education, serving on community boards, donating their time and resources to those in need and truly making a difference in so many lives.

For example, Salina Regional employees helped 26 less fortunate families this past holiday season – helping to make sure there would be Christmas presents under the tree. Another example is our support to the United Way. During down economic times our employees continue to give to the United Way. This past year $81,000 was donated to the cause. We even united together and built a Habitat for Humanity home several years ago.

Other examples include Project Salina, Smoky Hill river Festival, Relay for Life, Back to School Fair and so many others too numerous to mention.
