ARE YOU READY TO IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH WITH THE Y?
The Y is now ready and able to be an active partner in your health journey.
Thanks to a recent grant from Maricopa County Department of Health and other grant funders, we are now accepting referrals from doctors who are prescribing physical activity, diabetes prevention or blood pressure monitoring, and more.
Many of these services are now free of charge or low cost and financial assistance is available.
Make us a Part of Your Healthcare Team
Your healthcare doesn’t end when you leave your doctor’s office. It’s only beginning – it continues at the Y.
Because of this grant, the Valley of the Sun YMCA provides whole health evaluations, matching members and patients to programs to help address their medical recommendations and works with your practitioner to put their medical advice into action.
It Starts By Raising Your Hand
We can help guide patients with health issues ranging from diabetes to depression, from chronic disease prevention to hypertension, to obesity to cancer.
Following a self-referral using this form OR a referral from your physician or healthcare provider, you can meet with one of our Community Health Workers to assess your needs and match you to programs like weight loss, strength building, diabetes prevention, and more.
We guide you every step of the way.
It all starts with a free, comprehensive Whole Health Evaluation with one of our certified Community Health Workers.
Once your evaluation is complete, we’ll match you with a program and support you along the way.
If you are a provider, and would like to refer your patients to the Y’s programs, we are ready to take your referral through our secure referral system. CLICK HERE to learn more.
How It’s Possible
A Community Effort
Beginning in 2022, the Valley of the Sun YMCA received grants from Maricopa County to lead a community-wide effort to make healthcare more accessible.
Due to the Y’s efforts, a Whole Health Initiative was formed to facilitate and support wellness and make health services more convenient, using local Y branches, programs, certified health staff and technology.
The Y has joined with over 20 community partners like Banner Health, Mountain Park Health, Arizona State University Edson College of Nursing and ASU’s College of Health Solutions, Valley of the Sun United Way, the Arizona Department of Health Services, NOAH and many others to bring health services to our members and the community.
Anyone in Maricopa County interested in these services is now eligible, thanks to our grant.
