PITTSBURGH – Nov. 16, 2020 – Gateway Health, a leading managed care organization dedicated to caring for the “total health” of its members, has pledged $1 million in large grants to eleven community organizations across Pennsylvania. The funds will be used to support programs that address Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) and social justice in local communities.

Community organizations include:

  • Macedonia Family and Community Enrichment Center (FACE)
  • POISE Foundation
  • Program to Aid Citizen Enterprise (PACE)

“As a major component of our Wholecare philosophy at Gateway Health, we are committed to addressing Social Determinants of Health in our communities,” said Cain Hayes, President and CEO, Gateway Health. “At-risk populations and the people that we serve have experienced a disproportionate impact as a result of COVID-19. These donations come at a time when our communities need us more than ever. They will fund various SDoH programs that will help connect our communities to the resources needed to break down barriers and achieve better health outcomes.”

Gateway Health’s legacy of addressing SDoH, which refers to the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age, can be traced back to the start of Gateway Health nearly 28 years ago. Earlier this year, Gateway Health committed more than $1 million to support non-profit organizations, community partners and SDoH causes.
