Community Service

Healthcare is a career path that attracts those with a high level of compassion for others. From the first day of its founding, Health Advances has been committed to giving something back to the community. In that spirit the company undertakes a number of community service activities each year. These volunteer days offer a wonderful opportunity to give of our time and energy in a very different manner than our usual daily activities. We encourage you to learn more about some of the organizations with which we have worked.
