The Power of Good: Community-based organizations

HealthPartners is an integrated, nonprofit health care organization located in Bloomington, Minnesota, offering a full range of health care delivery and health plan financing services. Founded in 1957 as a cooperative, HealthPartners is the largest consumer-governed, nonprofit health care organization in the country. HealthPartners culture is rooted in our head + heart, together philosophy – a merging of the science and intellect of medicine with the compassion, spirit and humanity of our hearts. Our mission is to improve health and well-being in partnership with our members, patients and community.

HealthPartners employs 26,000 people who believe in the power of good – of good deeds, good feelings and good people working together. We partner with community-based organizations who are making good happen across Minnesota. We build houses with Habitat for Humanity, celebrate with Twin Cities Pride, and walk with March of Dimes. These examples and others center around six areas: health equity, wellness and prevention, research and education, healthy children, mental health, and nutrition and fitness. 

Within these areas, we also lead large-scale community-wide initiatives that pull together organizations across sectors to build momentum around specific health topics. One example is Make It OK, an initiative dedicated to ending the stigma around mental illness. Another is Little Moments Count, a statewide movement to help parents, caregivers and the community understand the importance of talking, playing, reading and singing early and often with children. A third is PowerUp, a community-wide initiative to make it easy and fun for kids and families to eat better and move more. In each of these initiatives, we leverage our health care expertise, extensive community reach, strong leadership and dedicated employees to support the health and well-being of Minnesotans and everyone we serve.
