In the Community
Helping you beyond your health
Providing treatment for disease and illness is only one facet of St. Joseph's/Candler's role in the community. Our outreach initiatives also provide a positive force in the overall health and well-being of the areas we serve.
We take a holistic approach to healing. We believe that external factors are essential to good health, including safe and adequate housing, education, access to information and meaningful employment.
Our mission of promoting wellness for all poeple icorporates this approach and can be seen in our numerous community outreach efforts.
