2014 Report to the Community: Every Stage of Life

Welcome from our CEO

The theme of this year’s Report to the Community, “Every Stage of Life,” comes from the Allegiance Health Mission: “We lead our community to better health and well-being at every stage of life.” Our Mission is the driving force behind everything we do.

It represents our commitment and our promise to this community: No matter what your age or state of health, we will do our best to ensure you receive the quality care, comfort and compassion you deserve.

As the health care industry continues to go through a dramatic transformation, we are confident in the future of Allegiance Health and our ability to be successful. A critical factor will be our ability to provide increasingly more value to our patients. Offering high- quality, high-value care is best for our community, and it will remain the foundation of all strategic decisions we make for our health system.

We are proud to present this Report to you and to share the experiences of some of our patients—from those just beginning to take their first steps to those at the end of a dedicated and accomplished life. As always, we are proud of the physicians, staff and volunteers who have devoted themselves to improving the quality of life in our community – at every stage of life.

We are also pleased to share some of the past year’s highlights for the Allegiance Health Foundation. Your support of our Foundation helps ensure that the same kind of high- quality care you have come to rely on from Allegiance Health is available to every member of our community, regardless of their ability to pay.

Thank you for entrusting us with your care, which we consider our deepest honor. We remain dedicated to earning that trust every day.

Sincerely,

Georgia Fojtasek, President and CEO
