District presents new proposed zone maps
The Desert Healthcare District and Foundation is hosting public hearings this spring and next fall to give valley residents opportunities to review proposed maps that divide the District into geographic zones. Residents' participation is key to the process to redraw the District from five to seven zones.
We believe every resident in our District deserves:
- Access to health education, disease prevention and comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services
- The opportunity to participate in District matters through access and input to the board
We support positive health system change via:
- Incorporating best-practice methodologies where possible
- Encouraging accurate outcome measurement by benchmarking, monitoring and evaluation
- Supporting innovative new practices and programs
- Fostering collaboration and partnerships
