NVV Invests Deeply in the Health and Well-Being of Napa County

The Sister Ann Dental Clinic at Clinic Ole is one of the many community health programs supported by Napa Valley Vintners.
Read about the good work of this agency here.

The Napa Valley Vintners (NVV) announced today its first set of grants from the proceeds of the 2012 Auction Napa Valley fundraising event. Beginning with these grants, the organization will invest $7 million over the coming months primarily on two strategic priorities: community health and children's education. The first awards total more than $1.9 million and are for direct medical and dental services.

"These funds are designated for providing those without other options access to timely primary, preventive, acute and emergency care; helping patients prevent and manage chronic diseases; and improving children's health," explained Linda Reiff, Napa Valley Vintners executive director. "By emphasizing preventive and intervention services, we can help residents keep health issues from becoming more serious and costly to treat."

The county's three largest healthcare providers - Community Health Clinic Ole, Queen of the Valley Medical Center and St. Helena Hospital - will receive the grants totaling more than $1.9 million. Combined, these three providers treated more than 62,000 Napa County residents, nearly half of the population of Napa County, last year. And their emphasis on prevention and early intervention programs aligns with the NVV's funding strategy.
