Our Mission

The mission of the UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation is to promote healthy living through programs that provide education and improved access to health care.

Improving Access to Services

At the UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation, we are committed to improving the health and well-being of our community by funding both community programs and our own projects. We provide grants to our community partners who share in our mission to promote health and wellness throughout our region.

Identifying and Addressing Unmet Needs

The Foundation Board continues to find ways to address health-related problems in the community. From providing AEDs to police and fire departments to loaning free medical equipment to people who can’t afford it, we are constantly working in our community to provide support where it is needed most.

Promoting Improved Health and Wellness

In 2001 the foundation established an endowed fund to honor the memory of C. Howard Miller, DO, a respected member of the medical community in the UPMC Horizon area.  Each year, investment earnings from the fund are used to sponsor a health education event through the Dr. C. Howard Miller Health Education Lecture Series.


Impact is more than numbers, it's lives touched by generosity.
