Mission

Georgetown Health Foundation generates and accelerates positive change in our Community’s health.

MISSION PHILOSOPHY

  • The Foundation works collaboratively with its community to improve the health of Georgetown residents through partnerships, experience, knowledge, and funding.

  • The Foundation owns a partnership interest in St. David's Healthcare Partnership (the "St. David's Healthcare") which operates a number of hospitals in the Central Texas region, including St. David's Georgetown Hospital. St. David's Healthcare is dedicated to serving Central Texas under the community benefit standard and in accordance with the requirements of the Affordable Care act and includes a number of hospitals, free standing emergency rooms, ambulatory care centers and urgent care centers.

Vision

We imagine our Community as one in which all are empowered to build and sustain healthy, productive lives and we believe the health of Georgetown residents is influenced by the environment in which they live.

VISION PHILOSOPHY

  • Georgetown Health Foundation agrees with the World Health Organization’s definition of health as ‘a complete state of physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of infirmity.

  • We believe the social determinants of health (SDH) are powerful influencers on this comprehensive definition of health.

  • “The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life. These forces and systems include economic policies and systems, development agendas, social norms, social policies and political systems.”
