Community at Reading Health System
For over 145 years, Reading Health System has been committed to improving the health
and well-being of our neighbors throughout the Berks County region. We address issues
that impact the quality of life for those around us, helping our neighbors experience
better health at every stage of their lives. In our last fiscal year, we contributed
more than $182 million for the benefit of the communities we serve.
Here are several examples.
- Improving the Community's Health
We offer education, service and outreach to promote health and healing, provide
free screenings and immunizations, and advance self-care by increasing healthcare knowledge.
- Employee Volunteerism
Volunteers from Reading Health System are a caring presence throughout the community.
Last fall, staff members donated their time to paint the façade of row homes through
West Reading's Let's Paint the Town initiative.
- Friends Who Care
The Friends of Reading Health System consists of more than 1,200
individuals who raise money through our gift shops, as well as Garden Party,
Road Run and Tower Golf Classic events.
- Drive-Thru Flu Vaccines
During our first-ever drive-thru flu vaccine event, nearly 1,000 vaccines were distributed
at no cost to drivers and their passengers. We also provided free flu vaccinations
to 1,200 individuals in traditional settings.
- Turkeys and School Supplies
We've donated turkeys for families in need, as well as school supplies. We've also
collected books for a reading initiative, supported a toy and clothing drive, and
participated at an award-winning level in the United Way campaign.
- Outreach for the Most Vulnerable
Our Outpatient Social Worker visits high-risk individuals, providing structured
case management through short-term supportive counseling, links to other agencies
and health status checks.
