Phoenix-Area Community Resources Available to Patients

Patients Can Connect with Local Organizations to Support Their Overall Health and Well-Being

 |  For Patients

Patients often do not have access to resources they need in order to maintain good health. Social determinants of health are the environments in which people are born, live, work and learn in that influence inequalities in access to healthcare and overall well-being. At the heart of Arizona Care Network is our care coordination team, a group of individuals who are committed to improving the overall health of our patients by connecting them to needed resources.

If you or a loved one are struggling to maintain good health because you need access to key resources such as food or housing, we encourage you to look through the list below. Still not finding the resources you need? The ACN concierge is available 24/7 and can answer any questions you may have. Contact the concierge by calling 602.406.7226 or e-mailing members@azcarenetwork.org.
