About Elevate Health

Elevate Health is a Pierce County-based non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health and well-being of all Pierce County residents through community, equity, and innovation. As one of Washington State’s nine Accountable Communities of Health (ACH) organizations, Elevate Health works to narrow the gap between unmet health and social needs and the delivery of health and social care. Elevate Health is committed to the principle that all should be treated with equity, dignity and respect, no matter their stations in life. To achieve these objectives, Elevate Health partners with local organizations, community groups, community members and other stakeholders to uplift community voice in pursuit of “whole-person health” for those who live, work, and play in the South Sound Region.
