CommonSpirit Health, one of the nation’s largest health care provider systems, is committed to building healthy communities advocating for those who are poor and vulnerable and innovating how and where healing can happen both inside our hospitals and out in the community. The Community Investment Program (“CIP”) is at the forefront of realizing the organization’s mission and channels financial resources to institutions or projects that address the social determinants of health in the form of below-market rate loans to institutions and/or projects. With an allocation of up to $400 million, of which approximately $250 million is either deployed or approved for deployment, the CIP promotes access to jobs, housing, food, education, and health care for people in low-income communities, with a particular focus on the communities we serve.
