The Power of Genuine Connection

Dear Friends,

How are you?

I ask because I care about you as a member of our HealthPoint community, and because these past few years have been so hard—for our patients, for our staff, for our community, for all of us.

Amidst a tempest of change and exhaustion, small moments of listening, connection, and compassion have been a lifeline. Rules and guidelines continually shifted, new technology challenged us, but we could always count on each other. And for that I am forever grateful to our staff and to our community.

Covid was a powerful reminder that relationships are everything.

This is especially true in health care. Because no matter the technological advances, at its core, health care is deeply human. It’s people caring for people.

And people rely on relationships and trust.

Earning that trust takes time. It’s not about showing up and offering solutions. It’s about listening deeply, building relationships, and working alongside partners to achieve a shared vision for what a healthier, more equitable community truly looks like.

HealthPoint’s work on school-based health care and the Family First Community Center are two examples of leading by listening, learning from each other, and collaborating to create a new kind of care. One that delivers health services, but also goes beyond that to provide equitable opportunities for living a healthy and happy life.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about and support this essential work. There is strength in community, and you are an important member of HealthPoint’s. I look forward to connecting and building our own relationship.

Whether it’s at events like our annual Kaleidoscope Gala, through our online newsletter updates, or one-on-one through emails, phone calls, or visits to HealthPoint clinics, please reach out any time to We are here for you, like you are here for us. That we can count on each other is what makes community health so uniquely hopeful and powerful.

In health and community,
Lisa Yohalem, CEO

School-Based Health Centers

HealthPoint has provided school-based health services for the past 16 years. The work is a natural extension of our mission to strengthen communities and improve people’s health by delivering quality health care services, breaking down barriers, and providing access to all. Each School-Based Health Center provides primary and mental health services to teens who otherwise may not have access to care.

Family First Community Center

The Family First Community Center, which is scheduled to open in 2023, will bring health care, recreation, and community services to families and youth in the Cascade/Benson Hill area of Renton. HealthPoint will provide medical, dental, and behavioral health care at the center. In partnership with the City of Renton and school district, the center will offer after-school programs and classes; youth, teens and adult sports; group exercise; personal training; health education, cooking, and nutrition classes; and activities for infants, toddlers, and children.

Healthpoint has been partnering with former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin. His vision grew into a community-wide effort and is now almost a reality. HealthPoint sees this neighborhood center as a gathering point for youth and adults. This project is a great example of how HealthPoint, by partnering with other organizations, can tackle social determinants and improve the health of our entire community.

“The Family First Community Center will be a place where the health and wellness of families are the priority. It’s a grand vision met with a relentless passion to serve the community. And I am so grateful to HealthPoint for, once again, stepping up to be a part of something great happening in Renton.”

— Doug Baldwin, former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver, philanthropist
