It is impossible to put a price on the many ways the efforts of our faculty and staff benefit our community. Some of the ways UC San Diego Health Sciences is making a difference in the lives of our neighbors:
- Offering outreach programs that provide prevention and screening opportunities
- Providing unique medical care programs – many of which are not available elsewhere in our community
- Educating the physicians, medical researchers and pharmacists of tomorrow
- Driving groundbreaking medical advances by constantly seeking to solve the most pressing medical mysteries
In FY 2012, UC San Diego Health System contributed more than $182,808,000 to community benefit programs and services.
The services and programs provided by UC San Diego Health System enhance the lives of patients and residents of our community in many ways. If you add up all of the ways we help people, the sum would be our community benefit. It involves providing medical care to those in need, as well as programs or services that promote health and healing in response to identified community needs.
