Caring for Central Florida has been an Orlando Health tradition for nearly 100 years. Each year, our Community Benefit Report highlights our commitment to building a stronger and healthier Central Florida. Through our community outreach efforts, we are able to meet identified health needs, particularly in the vulnerable, uninsured and underserved communities. From screenings, medical research, health fairs, support groups and wellness activities, to educating future physicians, nurses and other health professionals, we are proud to be improving the lives of the individuals and communities we serve. Our nearly 15,000 team members and more than 1,200 hospital and foundation volunteers also fulfill Orlando Health's mission through their participation in year-round programs.
At Orlando Health we have a long-established tradition of assessing the health needs of Central Floridians. This is done in order to provide residents with the opportunity to attain optimal health outcomes. In 2013, our hospitals along with fellow healthcare organizations conducted the first ever multi-hospital, public health department joint community health needs assessment. In support of building a healthier community, the assessment helps: increase understanding regarding the health of Central Floridians; build capacity through affiliated development and collaboration; and strengthen the role of the healthcare organizations as they work side by side within Central Florida to address community health needs.
