Our Community Health Worker Program

Crescent Cares

To address SCD disparities in Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley, we established a Community Health Worker program in 2020. Our Community Health Workers (CHWs) are passionate advocates for individuals living with SCD to ensure they receive the highest level of compassionate healthcare and social services. In addition to providing support to patients and their families, they conduct research and outreach, make home visits, offer health education, and case management.

A growing body of evidence-based practices demonstrates that implementing a CHW program is a solution that delivers meaningful and measurable results to hospitals and health systems. Research has shown that CHW programs have resulted in an average savings of $2,245 per patient served, and hospitals and health systems can save $2.28 for every $1.00 it invests in a CHW program – all while improving the health outcomes of patients and communities.
