The New Year is one of new goals, new habits and brighter outlooks. That couldn’t be truer for Advantaged Health Centers, but the New Year for us is both a new outlook and a continuing of our strategy already in progress.

Despite a few challenges, 2019 for us was a phenomenal year—one of growth, insight and adjustments to continue meeting our goals of providing the best healthcare to the communities we serve. But it doesn’t stop there.

In 2020, we will continue to invest in our staff, our centers and our communities. We will expand our partnerships to ensure collective progress, and we will keep our finger on the pulse of the healthcare industry to ensure we are keeping pace with changes and adjust accordingly.

In return, we are encouraging support from our partners and vendors to provide external engagements like our Annual Homeless Memorial; we are demanding excellence from our staff to ensure customer satisfaction and will continue to do our part to stabilize the neighborhoods that we occupy and the neighbors who reside there.

We will be present in the community—from our residents to the C-Suite—as part of our on-going commitment to volunteerism via our 100-hour campaign. It’s how we stay connected, and support our communities.

So, while 2019 was a great year, we are looking forward to—and working towards—bigger, better and brighter things. And, we hope you’ll join us on this journey.
