Community Benefit

Adventist Health’s mission statement of Living God’s love by inspiring health, wholeness and hope is coupled with a vision to transform the health experience of our communities through collaborative programs, community investments and community outreach. We are inspired by the healing ministry as represented by the life of Jesus Christ and believe we are called to live out our mission intentionally in the communities we serve. In the small towns, suburbs and inner cities we serve, we continue our journey to provide quality healthcare until every person made in God’s image has experienced the best health today, hope for tomorrow, and God’s love that endures forever.

Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley strives to actively engage in a number of practices that aim to improve the health of our community. These programs and services are intended to improve access for disadvantaged groups or to address important health care matters for a defined population.

In 2017 Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley was the presenting sponsor of the Health and Senior Resource Fair. The event served several hundred residents with free health screenings, wellness education and directions to local health resources. Adventist Health Tehachapi Valley also coordinated a drive-thru flu shot clinic in November 2017, which served several dozen residents. The inaugural event was free to the public.
