NorthPoint takes great pride in its partnerships with community organizations. By working together, we have greater opportunities to enhance our neighborhoods and improve the health of our families. Especially important is the merger of essential social services, such as food shelf services and other advocacy programs, into an integrated service delivery model. This approach strives to provide a holistic approach to assisting families in achieving self-sufficiency and wellness. Additionally, community outreach efforts through the use of Community Health Workers connect residents in need of services to the NorthPoint campus.

FVRx is a pilot program that explores the use of clinical care systems to improve health by increasing access to fresh produce. The program allows clinicians to “prescribe” fruits and vegetables during monthly group appointments for select patients. Prescriptions are renewable monthly and can be redeemed at a participating farmers market for produce for the patient’s family.
This program is supported by Blue Cross Blue Shield.
