Puentes de Salud promotes the health and wellness of South Philadelphia’s rapidly growing Latino immigrant population through high-quality health care, innovative educational programs, and community building. The foundation of Puentes de Salud rests on the belief that community health is not the sole domain of health care providers. While providing health care to the South Philadelphia Latino community, Puentes de Salud also works in partnership with community members, local public schools, universities, governmental institutions and other nonprofit organizations to improve the adverse economic and social conditions that threaten the health of its vibrant, yet vulnerable community.
